Adam Gilchrist rates England wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor the best in the world across all formats of the game.

Responding to a question in a Test Match Special interview during the ODI in Durham, Gilchrist highlighted Taylor's work up to the stumps which has regularly been world-class.

Taylor has created herself a portfolio of superb leg-side stumpings, alongside other examples of outstanding glovework, including two this season one of which was a breath-taking effort to remove Dane van Niekerk when she gathered a half volley from pace bowler Katherine Brunt.

'I tweeted, no longer than a week ago, that she is the best wicketkeeper in the world at the moment - male or female,' Gilchrist said. 'She's done some work over the years in the Big Bash in Australia and with social media now you can see these little snippets.

Best in the world. @Sarah_Taylor30 https://t.co/nfJSly17Oh

'It's a pretty bold statement, because there are a lot of fine wicketkeepers around - Alyssa Healy is another from the women's game, just so skilful with soft hands effecting these leg-side stumpings.

'[They] spend so much time up to the stumps with a little less pace on the ball in the women's game [and are] so skilful, I've seen a lot and a couple in the internationals over the last week or two have been brilliant pieces of work.'
