KL Rahul is close to breaking the world record of the most catches in a Test series. Which was made during the 1920-21 Ashes Series?
KL Rahul, who has flopped with the bat in the Test series against England, is getting many significant achievements during the fielding. In the Oval Test, KL Rahul made a catch in the first innings by stuttering Broad catches 13 snaps in the current series.
Along with this, Rahul has equaled the record of former India captain Rahul Dravid in the highest number of catches in a Test series, which had caught 13 catches during the Border-Gavaskar Series in Australia in 2004.
Talking about the world record of the biggest catch in a Test series, this record is the name of Australia’s Jack Gregory, who had 15 catches during the 1920-21 Ashes series. In this way, Rahul is very close to breaking the record of 97 years old.
Opportunity for Rahul
Since Jack Gregory, many players reached to him, but no one could break his record. Australia’s Greg Chappell is in second place with 14 catches in this list. He had 14 catches in the 1974-75 Ashes series.
If Rahul loses two or more catches in the second innings of England, then he can make the world record his name. Apart from them, Alastair Cook, who is playing the final Test series for England, has so far caught 13 catches in this series.
Rahul Dravid is on top in this list if the most hide-listers are in the top of international cricket. Dravid has 210 catches in 164 matches. On the second spot, Mahela Jayawardene had 205 catches in 149 matches.
