    Wicket Keeper for ATG English XI from the modern age

    choose 1 option. I didn't use any real criteria for the options, just people I think actually have a chance of qualifying for the team.

    Knott doesn't qualify as 'modern age'?

    A consideration is that Stewart averages 35 with the gloves and 47 without and 46 over 51 tests as an opener when not keeper.

    Stewart underrated as a pure opener IMO, particularly considering he spent a huge chunk of his career opening in the 90s in England.

    Will go for Prior here.

    Debuted post-1980 in the rule.

    debut before 1980 is essentially the cut off. It's mainly players from the 90s onwards

    From what I've seen Jack Russell would be the best keeper here.

    No doubt to me it's Prior who had the most success in the role
    Jimmy Anderson averages 23.2 on his birthday. Since 2010 he averages 14.4

    Big fan of Stewart's batting, but Prior was world class for quite a while as well. Shame he had such a shocking decline with both bat and gloves, but I'll still go with him.

    Prior. Stewart kept it going for longer, and Russell's keeping is arguably the best of all players debuting post-1980 or something, but Prior's peak was Gilchrist-esque.
    5-0

    Jack Russell. He and Read are the only wicketkeepers in the list.
