Mark Boucher

The 47-year-old was the first keeper to take 500 Test catches and also finished his career with the most dismissals in the history of Test cricket (555). 

Boucher had 998 dismissals in international cricket in July 2012 and had announced that the tour to England in 2012 would be his last. However, a freak injury during a warm-up game vs Somerset where his eye was hit by a bail while wicketkeeping brought his career to a premature end.
