Ajaz Patel, a Mumbai-born New Zealand spinner, took all ten Indian wickets in the second Test on Saturday, becoming only the third bowler in cricket history to do so.
Patel, a left-arm spinner, improved on his four wickets on the first day to finish with figures of 10-119. For 325, India was all out.
In the 144-year history of Test cricket, he is only the third bowler to take ten wickets in an innings. Jim Laker and Anil Kumble were the first two. Anil Kumble hails Ajaz Patel’s historic 10-wicket haul, ‘Welcome to the club’

Ajaz returned Agarwal, who had begun the day on 120 and India on 221-4, to break a 67-run stand between Axar Patel and Ajaz. To be surrounded by delighted Kiwi players, the cunning spinner quickly got Axar lbw and ended up the Indian innings.
