Dravid catches world record

Wellington: Rahul Dravid reached a special landmark on Monday when he took the catch of Tim McIntosh in the slips off Zaheer Khan on the fourth day of the third Test against New Zealand at Basin Reserve in Wellington on Monday.

Dravid who was standing in third slip, dived forwards and to his left to snaffle the Kiwi opener Tim McIntosh from the bowling of Zaheer Khan. McIntosh had been struggling against the swing of Zaheer, managing only four from 32 deliveries.

Dravid broke Mark Waugh's record of 181 catches - the most in Test cricket. Dravid has taken 134 Test matches to reach this landmark. Mark Waugh has played 128 Tests in his career.

He has also scored over 10,000 runs in both Test cricket and one-day internationals. As Dravid celebrates his entry in to the record books, we take a look at the highlights of his fielding career over the years.
