Kumble Welcomes Ajaz Patel To ‘Perfect 10’ Club, Cricketing Fraternity Lauds 10-Wicket-An-Innings Feat

Mumbai-born Patel became only the third bowler in Test cricket to take 10 wickets in an innings after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble on the second day of the second Test against India here.

Mumbai: The cricket fraternity on Saturday hailed New Zealand left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel’s stupendous feat of taking all the 10 wickets in an innings of a Test match, terming it an “unreal” and a “special” effort.

Mumbai-born Patel became only the third bowler in Test cricket to take 10 wickets in an innings after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble on the second day of the second Test against India here.

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.

“Welcome to the club #AjazPatel #Perfect10 Well bowled! A special effort to achieve it on Day1 & 2 of a test match,” tweeted Kumble, who had taken 10 wickets against Pakistan in Delhi during the 1999 home series.

England’s Laker had reached the rare milestone way back in 1956. The 33-year-old Patel’s effort was also the best by a visiting spinner in India, surpassing Australia’s Nathan Lyon (8/50) in 2017.

While the other New Zealand bowlers were rendered ineffective, Patel troubled the Indians with his guile from day one when he took all the four wickets to fall.”I have been privileged to see some incredible things from @BLACKCAPS in my 15 years of commentary and today is right up there. @AjazP That was a special mate,” wrote former New Zealand pacer Simon Doull, who is commentating the second Test.

“One of the toughest things to do in the game of cricket. To have an entire team in your kitty in an innings is too good to be true. Simply unreal. Well done young man – Ajaz Patel,” wrote former India head coach Ravi Shastri.

Australia’s limited overs captain Aaron Finch added: “That’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen!! Ajaz Patel….what a phenomenal performance.”
