Peter McGlashan set an international record for catches by a wicketkeeper in a first-class match when he claimed his 12th catch for Northern Districts province against Central Districts in New Zealand domestic match on Thursday.

The former New Zealand 'keeper took six catches, including one to dismiss former Black Caps batsman Mathew Sinclair, during Central's first innings and seven, including catches from internationals Jamie How and Ross Taylor, in its second.

Northern won the four-day match at Cobham Oval, Whangarei by nine wickets.

McGlashan, 30, broke the record shared by 11 players, including former Australian wicketkeeper Rod Marsh and Zimbabwean Wayne James, when he caught Bevan Griggs off the bowling of Graham Aldridge Thursday.
