Watch: On this day in 1999, Anil Kumble took 10 wickets to script India’s famous win against Pakistan



On this day when Anil Kumble picks 10 wickets in an innings against Pakistan

On this Day in 1999: Former Indian cricket Anil Kumble stunned the cricketing world on February 7, 1999, as the Indian spinner became the second bowler after England’s Jim Laker (1956) to pick all 10 wickets in a single Test inning, that too against Pakistan.

Popularly known as ‘Jumbo’ by the cricketing community, Kumble registered figures of 4/75 and 10/74 in the second Test in Delhi in Pakistan’s tour of India.

It was magic as Kumble bedazzled the Pakistan line-up in the second innings of the second Test and went on to create history in the cricketing record books.

Laker was the first to create the feat after registering figures of 10/53 against Australia at Old Trafford in Manchester. In the final Test of the two-match series, India lost the first Test in Chennai by a margin of just 12 runs. The Indian team was under heavy scrutiny and in a must win situation.

India pacer Mohammad Azharuddin won the toss and chose to bat in Delhi. The hosts were able to score 252 on the board before being bowled out, courtesy of Wasim Akram’s swinging spells registering figures of 4/23.
