Highest scores by wicketkeepers

Rajneesh Gupta | April 06, 2005 13:14 IST

Mahendra Singh Dhoni became only the second Indian wicketkeeper after Rahul Dravid to score a century in one-day internationals when he notched up a blazing 148 in the second match at Visakhapatnam on Tuesday.

Dhoni's innings is the third highest by a wicketkeeper in the shorter version of the game. Australia's Adam Gilchrist occupies the first two places.

The previous highest score by an Indian wicketkeeper was 145 by Rahul Dravid against Sri Lanka at Taunton in the 1999 World Cup.

Dhoni's innings is also the highest ever played by any wicketkeeper batsman against Pakistan beating Alec Stewart's and Gilchrist's 103 in 1992 and 1998 respectively.

The previous highest score by a 'genuine' Indian wicketkeeper was 94 not out by Sameer Dighe against West Indies at Harare in 2001.
