MUMBAI: New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel on Saturday became the third bowler in the history of the game to scalp all 10 wickets in a Test innings.


He achieved the feat against India in the ongoing second Test here at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.


Patel returned with figures of 10-119 and as a result, India was bowled out for 325 in the first innings.


As soon as Ajaz picked up his tenth wicket, India's Ravichandran Ashwin also stood up to give a standing ovation to the Kiwi spinner, recognizing the remarkable feat.


Earlier, Australia's Jim Laker was the first cricketer to scalp 10 wickets in a Test innings in 1956 and that was followed by India's Anil Kumble in 1999 against Pakistan.
