Ajaz Patel becomes third bowler to take 10 wickets in Test innings after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble

Mumbai-born New Zealand left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel becomes third bowler in Test cricket to take 10 wickets in an innings.

“This is what the dreams are made of, to be out here and go out there and pick up four wickets on the first day is pretty special,” he said during a virtual media interaction at the end of the proceedings on Friday.

“I’m really, really lucky to be sitting here with four wickets and I’m pretty happy to be in my hometown. At the Wankhede, it was pretty special for me.”

Playing in India for the first time, the 33-year old, who had moved to New Zealand at the age of eight, turned it around for the visitors after a strong start by the Indian openers.

Patel first dismissed Shubman Gill (44) to break a strong opening stand at 80 and then took the prized scalps of Cheteshwar Pujara (0) and virat Kohli (0) in the same over to rattle the Indian top-order.
