dude u can't compare b/w two great wicketkeepers........but according to me sangakara is better because he had played many crucial innings in his life which lead to in for sri lanka but gily is not far behind me........they r both great players

Well, I would say both are different form of cricketers. Both have an unique style and a different approach. For example, in test match cricket, comparing Dravid's ability with Tendulkar would be something a very tough call. Because, both the guys are fantastic test match cricketer, but have unique style. Sangakara likes to start the innings a bit slowly than Gilchrist, but usually plays longer than Gilchrist. But, one cannot judge a batsman by seeing this alone. Because, if Gilchrist scores even 30 runs, but quick 30, it is more useful for a team. Another example I could give his comparing Jayasuriya with Kallis in one day matches.. They both are good cricketer, but have unique approach and both are useful for a team in an unique way.

I think that both sangakara and gilcirist are best in oneday,20-20 and test. Sangakara takes time to settle whetheras gilcirist start hitting from the first ball. When Sangakara settle then its going to be his hundred whereas when gilicrist settle its going to pass the 300 score gilcrist is mort dangerous than sangakara.
