Nazil claims all ten in an innings
A right arm seam bowler of Kannur named Nazil CT has claimed all 10 wickets in a two day match and became the first bowler to do so in men’s inter district tournament in Kerala’s history.
In an under – 19 match, Nazil finished with a bowling figure of 9.4 – 4 – 12 – 10 against Malappuram at Perinthalmanna. 18 years old Nazil has been playing for Kerala since last six years. His enormous bowling destroyed Malappuram who was bundled out for just 26 runs in the first innings of the match.
After the match Nazil said, “I am mainly an inswing bowler and do not strive for much pace; the pitch helped in the morning session where it moved a bit.” Out of his total ten wickets, four were bowled out and three were trapped in legs.
The event brought the memories back of Anil Kumble, who achieved a perfect ten in Test cricket after Jim Laker of England; in the year of 1999, Anil Kumble grabbed all 10 wickets of Pakistan conceding 74 runs.
