5. Mahendra Singh Dhoni (India) – 294
The man with the Midas touch was as safe as a house in test cricket as well. Being captain of a star-studded team only inspired him to take his game to the next level. Dhoni has lightning quick reflexes, as was evident from the number of stumpings to his name, the most by any wicket-keeper. He was a counter-attacking batsman too. While he lacked in technique, he made it up with grit and determination, both in keeping as well as batting. Dhoni retired early this year and went away as India’s most successful wicket-keeper batsman.
