Best wicket keeper of indian team history
Topic on best wicket keepers
has already been made but if you ask about Indian gloves, my question remains the same that how do we define best wicket keeper? in terms of runs or most catches/stumpins? records and statistics surely tell a story but not the complete picture. there may have been many keepers who played some cricket for India but injury or lack of selector's favor dissolved their career. Anyway, here's some lists
Most runs by an Indian wickets keeper in tests
2925 runs = MS Dhoni, 53 tests, best 148, 4 century, ave 40.62.
2759 runs = Syed Kirmani, 88 tests, best 102, 2 century, ave 27.04.
2611 runs = Farooq Engineer, 46 tests, best 121, 2 century, ave 31.08.
1442 runs = Nayan Mongia, 44 tests, best 152, 1 century, ave 24.03.
1285 runs = Kiran More, 49 tests, best 73, 0 century, ave 25.70.
Most runs by an Indian wickets keeper in ODI
5559 runs = MS Dhoni, 169 ODI, best 183*, 6 century, ave 49.63.
2300 runs = Rahul Dravid, 73 ODI, best 145, 4 century, ave 44.23.
