Boucher regains world Test wicket-keeping record

February 24th, 2008 - 9:49 pm ICT by admin  


Dhaka, Feb 24 (IANS) South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher Sunday regained his world record for the most Test dismissals during the first Test against Bangladesh here Sunday. Boucher caught Mushfiqur Rahim for two off Jaques Kallis for his 417th victim, which eclipsed the short-lived record of 416 held by Australian Adam Gilchrist.

Boucher had lost the record last month when Gilchrist overtook him in the fourth and final Test against India in Adelaide. Boucher had broken Australian Ian Healy’s long-standing world record of 395 Test dismissals against Pakistan in October.

With Gilchrist having retired from Test cricket, Boucher is now pretty sure to hold on to the record for some time to come.
