KL Rahul took an “absolutely brilliant” catch to remove England’s Stuart Broad and break his 98-run partnership with Jos Buttler on day two of the fifth Test against India at The Oval.
Broad’s dismissal was Rahul’s 13th catch of the series and no other player has done that in England. The previous record belonged to South Africa’s John Ikin who took 12 catches way back in 1951.
Broad went for an aggressive shot but the ball connected with the top edge of his bat and went high up in the air. Rahul, who was positioned at mid-on, ran back, leaped forward and completed the catch.
Here’s the video:
