Yes, Knott was quite a half-decent wickie.
I would throw in Jack Russel into that mix of yours. In the early days, Mushy used to be such an excitable lad behind the stumps...almost hyper-active. Hence, many lapses in concentration. As he getting "older" he is becoming much more calmer. Mushy is not spilling too many nowadays.
Khaled Masud, though, was almost electric while keeping to the spinners.
