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|
