New Zealand’s Ajaz Patel became the first bowler away from home to pick up 10 wickets in an innings of Test cricket.
The Mumbai-born spinner achieved that feat when he took down Mohammad Siraj on the Day 2 of the on-going Test against India.
He is the third bowler overall to achieve this feat in men’s cricket. Jim Laker was the first player to achieve this feat in 1956 against Australia at Old Trafford. India’s Anil Kumble is the second player to get there. The Indian spinner took all ten wickets of Pakistan players in New Delhi.
In the on-going match, India began the day with six wickets in hand. They added 64 runs in the morning session with the loss of two wickets. After the lunch, the team had lost four wickets while adding another 40 runs to the total. They ended their 1st innings with 325.
