Drawing level with a world record does not matter as much as being part of a famous Indian victory over Australia for Rishabh Pant, who on Monday became the first Indian wicketkeeper – and third overall – to hold 11 catches in a Test.

On day five of the first Test at Adelaide Oval, Pant drew level with Wriddhiman Saha‘s India record of 10 catches when he held a catch off Australia captain Tim Paine. When he held onto an outer edge from Mitchell Starc in the 1o1st over of Australia’s second innings during the afternoon session, Pant entered elite company with his 11th catch of the match.

The only two wicketkeepers with 11 catches in a Test before this were England’s Jack Russell and South Africa’s AB de Villiers.

“I was very nervous because they were coming close, but we did well in the end. This is my first time getting this milestone, but happy to be winning this Test match,” said the 21-year-old Pant after the win. “Very thrilled, this is also my sixth Test, that’s why I’m happy for Team India.”

Pant’s chatter from behind the stumps on Monday also made headlines. The host broadcaster, Fox Cricket, turned off their commentary to allow their viewers to listen to Pant’s verbal volleys from behind the stumps when Pat Cummins was batting.

Asked about his choice of words, Pant replied: “I always enjoy troubling the batsmen actually because I want them to concentrate on me and not on the bowlers.”

Earlier in his Test, Pant completed six catches in Australia’s first innings to draw level with MS Dhoni’s India record achieved in 2009.

In his debut series this summer in England, he layed the last three Test and held 15 catches. Seven of those came in his first Test while becoming the first Indian wicketkeeper to take five catches in an innings on debut.
