Saha becomes 1st Indian keeper to affect 10 dismissals in Test
Cape Town: Wriddhiman Saha on Monday became the first Indian wicketkeeper to affect 10 dismissals in a Test during the ongoing opening match between India and South Africa here.
The 33-year-old surpassed former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who had claimed nine dismissals in a Test match against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in 2014.
He achieved the feat on the fourth day of the match.
Saha took 10 catches — five in each South African innings — to take his number of dismissals to 85, which includes 10 stumpings. He also eclipsed Farokh Engineer's record of 82 dismissals to become the fifth most successful Indian wicketkeeper.
