Top 3 wicket-keeper batsman currently
Much like umpiring, wicket-keeping is a thankless job where one only gets noticed upon doing something wrong. They say when a wicket-keeper isn’t noticed, they are having a good day.
The modern game demands that no matter how good a wicket-keeper, they must hold their own with the bat. Therefore, we rate 3 best wicket-keepers in the world currently;
1) Quinton De Kock – QDK is probably the leading wicket-keeper batsman in the world currently. He has also been given the additional responsibility of captaining his side in limited overs. However, his additional role hasn’t curtailed his free-flowing batting and acrobatic wicket-keeping.
2) Mushfiqur Rahim – One of the most underrated cricketers in the world, Mushfiqur is the batting mainstay for Bangladesh. He does more than a neat job behind the stumps and apart from a few premature celebrations, there is not much Rahim does wrong on the cricket field.
3) Jos Buttler – Buttler has been a revelation for England as a batsman in white ball cricket. In fact, in limited overs, he’s one of the most sought after batsman in the world. His wicket-keeping is nothing short of exceptional too.
