World Record For Alex Carey, Took These Many Catches Behind The Wickets

On Wednesday, Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey equaled a world record by taking eight catches in a single innings while playing for South Australia.

The 32-year-old Test wicketkeeper participated in his first 50-over match since his exclusion from the Australian team during the World Cup in India last year. Carey did not let this chance go and he made it a memorable day.

On the same day, Victorian opener Tom Rogers made a noteworthy contribution by scoring 196 against New South Wales, setting a new one-day record for his state. This surpassed the previous record held by Aaron Finch, who had scored 188 in 2019.

Alex Carey managed to get five catches on the bowling of Jordan Buckingham. Buckingham concluded with impressive figures of 6-41 as the Bulls posted a total of 218 at Karen Rolton Oval. Meanwhile, Tom Rogers showcased a dominating performance for Victoria, accumulating 311 runs in 48.4 overs. His innings included 15 fours and an equal number of sixes on the compact North Sydney Oval before being caught on the boundary while pursuing a double century.

Rogers managed to score 26 runs from five consecutive deliveries bowled by former Test fast bowler Jackson Bird, which included three sixes.
