Kusal Mendis and Dinesh Chandimal grabbed seven catches as South Africa were bowled out for 392, during South Africa's first innings at Newlands.

This created a quirky statistic: seven is the most catches held by a keeper in an innings but, of course, this haul was shared between two men. The record number of dismissals for Sri Lanka is six, held jointly (and aptly) by Chandimal and Amal Silva.

The same thing happened in 1977, between West Indies and Pakistan in Jamaica, when Majid Khan spent time behind the stumps in place of Wasim Bari who later returned and the pair took seven catches between them in the second innings.
