Finally, today, when McIntosh edged one to the 3rd slip where Rahul was standing.Rahul dived forward and low to take a smart catch.
Congatulations Rahul.You really deserved it!
“I am happy, very happy. In fact, last night he called and spoke about the 60 he scored and I then jokingly asked him, ‘so when are you finishing the catching business?’ I am delighted that he made it his own.
The last few catches took some time but it has finally come through. It is a pleasure that he went past an acclaimed fielder like Mark Waugh.”
--Mr.Sharad Dravid (Rahul's dad)
“He gives the same 100 per cent to his fielding which is often associated with his batting. He is an intense cricketer and his power of concentration never wavers through the day and that helps him to stay alert”
“Rahul is one of the finest and safest close-in fielders I have seen. He anticipates well and it is a moment of pride for me that an Indian, and a player from Karnataka, has achieved this remarkable landmark”
