Sarfraz Ahmed Sets New Wicket-Keeping Record Against South Africa

After a failing performance with the bat, Sarfraz Ahmed, has upheld his reputation by setting a new wicket-keeping record during the final Test match against South Africa on Sunday.

Sarfraz Ahmed took 10 catches in the on-going Test match and surpassed Australia’s Adam Gilchrist and former Indian captain, MS Dhoni, to become the only wicket-keeper captain to reach this feat.

Additionally, the Pakistani skipper has also made another record; taking 5 catches in each innings of a Test match.

His 10 catches in a Test match is one better than the record previously shared by Kamran Akmal and Rashid Latif.

Here’s how the record-list currently stands:

Total Catches Wicket-Keeper Captain Opposition Year
10 Sarfraz Ahmed South Africa 2019
8 Alex Stewart South Africa 1998
8 Adam Gilchrist Sri Lanka 2004
8 MS Dhoni Australia 2014

    • South Africa wins the match and the series. Thanks to ‘great captain’. How many losses have we suffered?

      • It’s Not Fault By Captain, Have you seen Ball By Ball Match ? Batsman Area Failed to Add 50 Runs in this series: Bowler cannot throw the ball up to 140Kph ? It;s time to hire some professional crickets in test like Fawad, Rizwan Any Many Other Etc. U Do Not Have Any Man to take Captain Charge.

        • A ‘great’ captain produces great results with any given team. This captain is neither inspiring nor performing. By watching ball by ball match will not prove anything. Results matter.
