Brad Haddin finished with six catches on Day Two of the second Test between India and Australia at The Gabba, Brisbane, thereby equalling an Australian wicketkeeping record, joining names like Wally Grout, Rod Marsh, and Ian Healy. Haddin’s six dismissals — all catches — ensured his name would find a place in the record books for most catches in an innings, something his illustrious predecessor Adam Gilchrist was unable to achieve.

Earlier, Josh Hazlewood starred with the ball for Australia as Brad Haddin took six catches. India were bowled out for of 408 after MS Dhoni and Ravichandran Ashwin added an attractive 57 runs, though the rest of the batsmen failed to capitalise on an excellent base laid by Murali Vijay, who scored his fifth Test match hundred — and fourth against Australia — and Ajinkya Rahane who guided India to 311 for four at stumps on Day One. India became only the second visiting team in history to score over 300 runs at The Gabba on Day One of a Test.
