5. Adam Gilchrist – 67 dismissals:
One of the most brilliant wicket-keepers of all time also did incredibly well in the IPL, despite playing for six seasons only. Gilchrist represented Deccan Chargers and Kings XI Punjab in the IPL and was expectedly fantastic for them. He was always spirited and never let the situations get to him. Smooth, fast and clean were the three traits that describe Adam Gilchrist’s performance in the IPL perfectly. In 80 IPL matches, Gilchrist effected 67 dismissals – 51 catches and 16 stumpings. A truly wonderful performance.
