previous best performance by a Pakistani 'keeper in a WSC/
C&U match was in the name of Rashid Latif, who made

catches versus England at Harare on 03-01-1997) and West

his 153rd match (including 54 stumpings). However three
of Moin's 146 catches were taken in the field. Hence

Australia's Ian Healy (234 dismissals in 168 matches)
and WestIndies' Jeff Dujon (202 dismissals in 166
