Top 5 Best Wicket-Keepers in the IPL History

The biggest T20 carnival, IPL has started and cricket fans can’t keep calm. IPL 2023 has already seen some close encounters and there are many more expected in the coming days. While batsmen and bowlers have played a major role in the entertainment that we have experienced, wicket-keepers have produced some memorial moments like run-out by Dhoni.

Wicket-keepers also have a major say when captains need to take a review. They also contribute with the bat. While Saha opens the innings for Gujarat Titans, MS Dhoni finishes the innings for Chennai Super Kings. Contribution of wicket-keepers will be crucial for any team to succeed.
