MUMBAI: “Unreal”, said a stunned cricket fraternity as New Zealand left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel became only the third bowler in the game’s history to grab all 10 wickets in a Test innings, joining Indian great Anil Kumble and England’s Jim Laker in a select club.
The Mumbai-born Patel achieved the feat on the second day of the ongoing second Test against India here. He is playing in the country of his birth for the fist time in his career.

With all 10 wickets in his kitty, Patel also surpassed the great Richard Hadlee to record the best figures by a New Zealand bowler. Hadlee had taken nine for 52 versus Australia back in 1985. —PTI
