Over the last few years, Ibrahim Khaleel has seen plenty, from being granted immunity to return to the BCCI fold from the Indian Cricket League to being part of the team that recorded the lowest total in Ranji Trophy.



On Sunday, he grabbed attention for the right reasons, claiming the world record for most dismissals by a wicket-keeper in a first class game. Khaleel snared 14 victims (11 catches, 3 stumpings) in Hyderabad's Ranji Trophy Plate group match against Assam at Guwahati.



Hyderabad thrashed Assam by an innings and 78 runs. An elated Ibrahim told HT, "It's an amazing feeling, and the fact that we won the game makes it doubly special."

Khaleel effected seven dismissals in each innings, his four catches and three stumpings followed by seven catches, surpassing the record of Zimbabwe's Wayne James, who had 13 dismissals (11 catches, 2 stumpings) while playing for Matabeleland against Mashonaland in the 1995-96 season. He was unaware of the record until after the match. The Indian record was held by Assam’s Samarjit Nath —who had 11 dismissals in the only first-class game he has played.
