Team India’s victory on the second day of the Mumbai Test looks almost certain. Team India, who scored 325 in the first innings, were all out for just 62 in the second innings, scoring 69 not out in the second innings. With a 332-run lead, Team India looks set to win the Test. Despite New Zealand batting disappointing in the second day’s play, its spin bowler Ajaz Patel made history.
Saturday marks the 22nd year in the history of world cricket. Such a feat had taken place in the fifties before. Let me tell you about the feat of taking a total of ten wickets in an innings in Test cricket. England’s Jim Laker took a total of ten wickets in a Test match against Australia in 1956. Anil Kumble of India repeated this feat in 1999 after 43 years at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi. 22 years later, in December 2021, Ajaz Patel of New Zealand cheated at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. He dismissed a total of ten Indian batsmen in the first innings of the Mumbai Test.
Sadly he could not celebrate this historic moment. Because New Zealand lost. Two and a half, three hours later Ajaz Patel had to bowl again. He also took 4 wickets in the second innings, though his team lost by 372 runs. When Jim Laker sent a total of 10 Australian batsmen to the pavilion in 1956, his team England won. England beat Australia by an innings and 170 in that Test match in Manchester. Jim Laker took 9 wickets in Australia’s first innings of that match as well. He then targeted ‘Perfect-10’ in the second inning. This was followed by India’s victory over Pakistan in 1999 when Anil Kumble took 10 wickets in an innings.
India won the Test by 212 runs against Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground in Delhi. Anil Kumble also took four wickets in Pakistan’s first innings of the match. But that did not happen in the case of Ajaz Patel. The New Zealand batsmen suffered a heavy 372-run defeat due to poor performance. New Zealand scored 62 in the first innings and 167 in the second innings.
The three bowlers who have taken 10 wickets in an innings in Test cricket are spinners. Jim Laker of Spinner. Anil Kumble is a leg spinner. Ajaz Patel is a left-arm spin bowler. Ajaz Patel is a player of Indian origin. As a child he moved to New Zealand. New Zealand got a chance to play in 2018. In 2018, he made his international debut with T20 cricket. He made his Test debut in November. This will be his third Test match in 2021.
