Cricket - Best Stumping

Wicket Keeper : 

The wicket-keeper (also spelled wicketkeeper and often shortened to keeper) in the sport of cricket is the player on the fielding side who stands behind the wicket or stumps being guarded by the batsman currently on strike. 

The wicket-keeper is the only member of the fielding side permitted to wear gloves and external leg guards.The wicket-keeper may also wear a helmet with a mesh face guard to help protect from injury.

Keep's Functions:

The most common dismissal effected by the keeper is for him to catch a ball that has nicked the batsman's bat, called an edge, before it bounces. Sometimes the keeper is also in the best position to catch a ball which has been hit high in the air. More catches are taken by wicket-keepers than by any other fielding position.

The keeper can stump the batsman by using the ball to remove the bails from the stumps, if the batsman has come out of his crease during a delivery.

When the ball is hit into the outfield, the keeper moves close to the stumps to catch the return throw from a fielder and, if possible, to run out a batsman.

Importance of being a keeper:

The keeper may also have a captaincy role. Uniquely, they are usually involved in every delivery of an innings, and may be in a position to see things that the captain misses. They can frequently be heard encouraging the bowler, and may also indulge in the practice (not meant to be overheard) of "sledging" the batsman with well timed comments about their skill, appearance or personal habits.

Now watch the one of the best Cricket Stumping ever, It was indeed a very difficult one, as the keeper has to stretch to his left and then come back in time to stump.
