Adam Gilchrist, the Australian legend calls Sarah Taylor, the current best wicketkeeper in the international cricket. Gilchrist believes that women have become champions as wicketkeepers mainly due to standing up to the stumps for longer duration of time. The former Australian wicket keeper commented in an interview recently and also tweeted that she is the best wicketkeeper globally as of now. Gilchrist praised her skills and said she worked in Australia’s Big Bash with social media. The 46 year old Australian cricketer also brought Alyssa Healy in the limelight as he feels she is another woman who is known as an excellent wicketkeeper.
The Indian Cricketer MS Dhoni is indeed one of the best wicketkeepers at present as he is popular for his fast reflexes behind stumps. However, Gilchrist feels its Taylor, who has the good of the potentials of a wicketkeeper and no one comes close to her not even MS Dhoni. Well, it is indeed a bold statement made by Gilchrist as there are several wicketkeepers and Alyssa Healy is another one to name a few. As per him, these women spend maximum time at the stumps with minimal space on the ball in the game. He has seen many matches, but the recent ones really caught his attention and he simply could not take his eyes off the match. Taylor is one of the most popular faces as far as the women’s game is concerned. She was also a part of the World Cup England winning campaign in the previous year. Taylor has played 9 tests, 87 T20ISAND 87 T20S in England.
