Haddin-1


Australia's Brad Haddin set a new world record for most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in a Test series when he caught England's Joe Root on the final day of the fifth Ashes match at The Oval on Sunday. 

Root's exit saw Haddin complete his 29th dismissal of the five-match series, surpassing the mark of 28 set by Australia wicketkeeping greatRodney Marsh, now a selector, against England during the 1982/83 Ashes in Australia. 

In both cases, all the dismissals were caught.
