Johannesburg: Australian vice-captain Brad Haddin has set a new world record for most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in a Test series after he caught a ball edged by England`s Joe Root on the final day of the fifth Ashes match at The Oval on Sunday.

According to Sport24, Root`s exit saw Haddin complete his 29th dismissal of the five-match series, as he surpassed the record of 28 set by Australian wicket-keeping great Rodney Marsh in the 1982/83 Ashes in Australia.

In both Haddin`s and Marsh`s cases, all the dismissals were caught, the report said.
