South Africa’s David Miller has equalled Pakistan veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik’s record of grabbing the most number of catches in Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).
Miller achieved the milestone during the third T20I against India in Bengaluru on Sunday, when he caught India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya at long on during the 19th over of the Indian innings.
The dismissal brought Miller’s tally of number of catches to 50 in 72 T20Is. On the other hand, Malik took 111 matches to reach the same number.
