RahulDravid on Friday became the only player other than a pure wicketkeeper to complete 400 international catches when he caught England’s Matt Prior during the first day's play of the second Test between England and India at Trent Bridge.
While Dravid has also kept wickets occasionally for India, the legendary Indian batsman can't be clubbed with the other eight players in the list who earned their caps for their glovework.
Dravid took his tally to 401 by taking another catch in the England first innings on Friday. While 329 of those catches have come in the field, only 72 were taken by Dravid as a part-time wicketkeeper.
Here’s how the list goes:
Mark Boucher: 917 catches, 456 matches, 916 as a keeper, 1 as a fielder.
Adam Gilchrist: 813 catches, 396 matches, 813 as a keeper, 0 as a fielder.
Ian Healy: 560 catches, 287 matches, 560 as a keeper, 0 as a fielder.
Kumar Sangakkara: 466 catches, 423 matches, 415 as a keeper, 51 as a fielder.
Rodney Marsh: 463 catches, 188 matches, 463 as a keeper, 0 as a fielder.
Jeff Dujon: 450 catches, 250 matches, 448 as a keeper, 2 as a fielder.
Alec Stewart: 422 catches, 303 matches, 375 as a keeper, 47 as a fielder.
Brendon McCullum: 406 catches, 289 matches, 384 as a keeper, 22 as a fielder.
RahulDravid: 401 catches, 494 matches, 72 as a keeper, 329 as a fielder.
To go with his record in the field, Dravid – who is known as 'The Wall' of Indian batting for the last 15 years – is also the second highest run-scorer in Test cricket with 12,453 runs. He is only behind SachinTendulkar, who has scored 14,738 runs.
