Australia’s Adam Gilchrist became the first wicketkeeper in the annals of ODI cricket to complete 400 dismissals. He achieved this feat when he took the catch of Sachin Tendulkar off Glenn McGrath in the 10th over of Indian innings at Mohali yesterday. The 34-year-old wicketkeeper made his one-day international debut against South Africa at Faridabad in October 1996. Playing his 245th ODI, Gilchrist took ten years and four days to reach this milestone. At the end of Mohali match, his tally now reads 355 catches and 45 stumpings. South Africa’s Mark Boucher is his nearest rival 331 dismissals to his credit. The accompanying tables have the complete details.
