    Alright here it is. CW chooses the best ever keeper. 32 men duke it out

    So this has been in the works for a long time but it hit a snag - we couldnt decide whether or not to include a keeper's batting ability. I have decided that it should be included. it's part of their contribution to the side after all


    so just weigh up their keeping and batting ability when making your choice. im sure some voters consider awesome glove skills to be more useful than a bit of batting ability for a wicket keeper anyway


    i've set a neat little structure here, with chronological style seeding.


    requirments: min 10 tests, min 50% of tests played as keeper


    Jack Blackham vs Dick Lilley
    Bert Oldfield vs Bert Strudwick
    George Duckworth vs Jock Cameron
    Les Ames vs Don Tallon

    Wally Grout vs John Waite
    Godfrey Evans vs Imtiaz Ahmed
    Farokh Engineer vs Allan Knott
    Wasim Bari vs Syed Kirmani

    Denis Lindsay vs Deryck Murray
    Rod Marsh vs Jeff Dujon
    Jack Russell vs Alec Stewart
    Ian Healy vs Dave Richardson

    Ridley Jacobs vs Moin Khan
    Adam Parore vs Mark Boucher
    Adam Gilchrist vs Andy Flower
    MS Dhoni vs Brendan McCullum

    Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
    If I run I can free my worried mind
    Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
    But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

    Why no Ian Smith? He might be an annoying commentator but is better than many on the list. And
    Ken Wadsworth was even better (although died tragically young).

    Ridley Jacobs vs Moin Khan

    Adam Gilchrist vs Andy Flower difficult because while I don't highly rate either of them as keepers, the one who added more to their team might just be Flower. Though Gilly will go through no doubt
