Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed is not having a good series with the bat in South Africa, but the wicket-keeper batsman set up a new record behind the stumps to go past MS Dhoni and Adam Gilchrist.

The Pakistan skipper took five catches in the first innings and took another five in the second innings in a Test match against the proteas to go past Australia’s Adam Gilchrist and India’s MS Dhoni to become the wicket-keeper captain with the most number of catches in a match.

Nottingham, 1998: Alec Stewart (England) vs South Africa – 8 catches

Darwin, 2004: Adam Gilchrist (Australia) vs Sri Lanka – 8 catches

Melbourne, 2014: MS Dhoni (India) vs Australia – 8 catches

Johannesburg, 2019: Sarfaraz Ahmed (Pakistan) vs South Africa – 10 catches
