IND vs NZ 2nd Test: Ajaz Patel creates history, equals Anil Kumble record of taking 10 wickets in innings

New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel created history by taking all 10 wickets in an innings against India, in the second test match in Mumbai’s Wankhede. After Jim Laker and Anil Kumble, Ajaz became the only third bowler to take all 10 wickets in an innings. His bowling figures were 47.5-119-10.

Ajaz Patel equalled India’s Anil Kumble and Jim Laker’s record by taking all 10 wickets in an innings of a test match. Before Ajaz, English pacer Jim Laker took all 10 wickets in an innings against Australia in 1956 and Anil Kumble took all 10 wickets against Pakistan in 1999.

Ajaz Patel is the first cricketer to take 10 wickets in the 21st century. In an ongoing test match between India and New Zealand, Ajaz Patel alone bowled more than 47 overs in an innings, while his rest of the teammates didn’t cross the 22 over mark.

Apart from equalling the record of most wickets in an innings, Ajaz Patel created many other records.

India was bowled out to 325, opening batsman Mayank Agarwal regustered his fourth test century, while all-rounder Axar Patel also smashed his maiden half-century.
