'Perfect Ten': Watch When Kumble rewrite cricket history

Perfect Ten: Watch When Kumble rewrite cricket history
x

Eighteen years back on this day, Anil Kumble became the only second bowler in Test history to take all ten wickets in an innings.


Going 1-0 down into the match, India needed to win the second Test of the two-match series to salvage their pride, but it was in fact a draw which seemed to be on cards with the opponents Pakistan needing 420 runs in the second innings to win the match and series.


 Pakistan were cruising at 101/0 with openers Shahid Afridi and Saeed Anwar looking in complete control. When Kumble was brought on, Pakistani began to crumble and India headed to a unlikely victory by 212 runs.


Speaking to BCCI on his achievement, Anil Kumble said that it was destined and such achievements cannot be planned.
