IPL 2020: Rating wicketkeepers of all 8 teams

Each IPL franchise is equipped at least two or three wicket-keepers in their squad.

When you look at the rating and see 7/10, you’d think it’s not fair. MS Dhoni is one of the best in the business. He has fast hands and affects lightning-quick stumps and is safe as a house as a catcher. Moreover, he is one of the best finisher’s Indian cricket has ever seen.

Dhoni’s numbers are simply fabulous. There’s no question about it. But it is his backups that reduce the overall rating. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) don’t have enough quality backup for Dhoni. Sam Billings donned the gloves last season when the CSK skipper opted out due to back spasms.

But Billings isn’t a part of CSK anymore. Tamil Nadu’s N Jagadeesan is the only other full-time option. Meanwhile, Ambati Rayudu can also do the job. Thus, there’s no doubt over Dhoni but it’s the backups that lower CSK’s wicket-keepers rating down to 7.
