Most dismissals (catches & stumpings) by a wicket keeper in test & ODI career.
For a wicket keeper to take plenty of catches in his career, he has to play for Australia, England, South Africa and other nations who depend on their fast bowlers to take wickets. For a sub-continent keeper to burst lists behind the wicket, he has to be migically good catcher against spinners. In either case, keeper has to play for a long time too..
The record of most dismissals by a wicket keeper in test match career is held firmly by Mark Boucher of South Africa who's the only gloveman to cross 500 victims barrier and frankly, none of current players seem to challenging him in near future, specially after Adam Gilchrist retired, breaking his fellow countryman Ian Healy's record. here's the list..

In one day cricket, Adam Gilchrist has been the best wicket keeper to play ever, and his records show not just in runs charts but also what he did behind the wicket, raising the bar so high that no one may be able to tough him although Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, MS Dhoni of India and Brendon McCullum of New Zealand still have a chance. here's the list..
