AB has been ridiculous as a keeper batsman in tests over the last couple of years, think he's averaging 65 with 4 tons and 4 half tons.

MS hasn't been to bad over the last couple of years averaging 41 with 1 ton and 5 half tons.

MP hasn't been as good as his record which speaks of a 42 average, over the last couple of years he's averaging 38 (still really good obviously) with 1 ton and 8 half tons but something to note when comparing these players is that prior has played about double the amount of matches in the last 2 years than AB and MS so it's a bit of a difficult comparison.

comparison over the last year is more even but prior has still played a few more matches than the others but over the last 12 months dhoni is averaging 50 in tests, AB is over 70, prior 37/38 and wade 31.
