India vs England: KL Rahul Achieves Rare Feat In The Oval Test, Equals Rahul Dravid

KL Rahul took a magnificent catch midway through the second day of the fifth test against England to become the first cricketer to have 13 receptions in a series of tests in England. KL Rahul accomplished this feat on Day 2 of the fifth Test against England in The Oval. Stuart Broad, who was struggling with Buttler, tried to beat up Ravindra Jadeja in the middle of a boundary shortly after lunch. However, Broad missed his shot and KL Rahul showed great athletic ability to cover a good spot while running backwards and stretching the whole body to complete the catch. The South African John Ikin previously had the record of 12 receptions.

KL Rahul not only became the first cricketer to have 13 receptions in a series of tests in England, but he also matched Rahul Dravid's record in most of an Indian's captures in a series of tests.

Rahul Dravid had won 13 receptions in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2004/2005 in four games, while KL Rahul has 13 catches in five games.

The Australian JM Gregory tops the list of the most catches of a series with 15 sacks. He recorded the record during the Ashes 1920/21 series.

Greg Chappell is second on the list with 14 receptions.

KL Rahul, during the Trent Bridge test, recorded another record by taking seven receptions in one possibility, the most by any non-wicketkeeper in a test in England.

Ravindra Jadeja, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah staged the ball for India on day 2 of the fifth test, as England pocketed 332 in the post-lunch session. While Jadeja collected four plots, Ishant and Bumrah returned with three plots each.

In addition to Alastair Cook (71) on Day 1, Jos Buttler scored a patient 89 to help his team publish a challenging total of entries.
