KL Rahul Equals Rahul Dravid’s Record By Taking 13 Catches In A Single Test In England

India vs England test series has been making headlines for many weeks now and Indian players have made several records in the test, even though Indian team is behind in the test.

KL Rahul took a magnificent catch at mid-on during the second day of the fifth Test against England to become the first-ever cricketer to take 13 catches in a Test series in England.

South Africa's John Ikin previously held the record of 12 catches.

Not only did KL Rahul become the first-ever cricketer to take 13 catches in a Test series in England but he also equaled Rahul Dravid's record for most catches by an Indian in a Test series.

Rahul Dravid had taken 13 catches in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2004/2005 in four matches, while KL Rahul has 13 catches to his name in five matches.

Australia's JM Gregory leads the list of most catches in a series with 15 catches. He registered the record during 1920/21 Ashes series.

Greg Chappell stands second in the list with 14 catches.

KL Rahul, during the Trent Bridge Test, registered another record by taking seven catches in an innings - the most by any non-wicketkeeper in a Test in England.

Indian Captain Kohli on Saturday also created a record as he completed his 18000 international runs and became the quickest to do so by overtaking legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara. The Indian skipper has achieved this feat in 382 innings while Lara took 411 innings to complete 18000 runs. Another cricket legend and Kohli's idol Sachin Tendulkar took 412 innings to do the same.

With this Kohli has also joined the elite list of Indian players to complete 18000 international runs which only include 'Trinity' of former cricketers; Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, and Sourav Ganguly.

He has been fighting for his team alone on this entire series and created several chances for the visitors to win the matches but poor assistance from other batsman has pulled him down.

In the ongoing fifth test between India and England, team England had selected to bat first and have settled for 198/7 in 90 overs. England managed to read 332 runs even after losing wickets earlier.
