Joshua Da Silva keeping
Silva took seven catches against South Africa

In the ongoing first Test match between South Africa and West Indies, Windies keeper Joshua Da Silva scripted history as he equalled the world record for most dismissals in a men’s Test innings.

In the 2nd innings, the West Indies restricted South Africa to 116, courtesy of a five-wicket haul by Kemar Roach. Meanwhile, Joshua Da Silva took seven catches in that innings, which is the joint-most dismissals in Test innings by a keeper for West Indies. The other Caribbean player to have seven dismissals in an innings was Ridley Jacobs against Australia in 2000.

Overall, Joshua joined Wasim Bari, Bob Taylor, Ian Smith, and Ridley Jacobs to become the 5th keeper to have seven dismissals in a single Test innings, which is a world record.

In the ongoing first match, South Africa, batting first, put 342 runs on the board as they rode on Aiden Markram’s century. The SRH skipper scored 115(174), which included 18 fours. Meanwhile, the visitors tumbled for 212 runs before restricting the Proteas to 116 to set -up a target of 247 runs to win the first Test match.

Although, Kraigg Brathwaite-led side got off to a poor start as their skipper departed for a duck before the umpire called for lunch on day 3.
