Wicketkeeping is a difficult aspect of the game of cricket, especially in shorter formats. In a T20 game, the wicketkeeper has to be on his toes all the time as batters are looking to add runs almost all of the time. 

Denying tight singles with skilful glove work requires a lot of practice and training at the wicketkeeper's part, as well as making sure the batter doesn't wander away from his crease while trying to take on the bowlers. 


The 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) is set to start from March 26th where IPL 2021 finalists Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai, let's take a look at the best wicket keepers in IPL history.
