MUMBAI – Kiwi spinner Ajaz Patel has etched his name in history books after taking all 10 wickets in the second Test against India.

The 33-year-old left-arm spinner has become the third player in the history of Test cricket to achieve this feat after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble.

Playing his 11th Test match for the Black Caps, the leftie spinner bowled a total of 47.5 overs, which included 12 maidens, and conceded only 119 runs.

The players he dismissed in the first innings of the second Test include Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Wriddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Jayant Yadav, and Mohammed Siraj.

Patel took four wickets on an opening day to return figures of 10 for 119 on Saturday as the Kohli-led squad was all out for 325.
