Epic Bowling Performances

Anil Kumble

Anil Kumble (India) - 10-74 at Delhi, 1998-99:

India registered a massive victory, their first over Pakistan since Chennai in 1979-80 to draw the series. The headlines were dominated by leg-spinner Anil Kumble, who claimed all ten wickets in Pakistan's second innings and thus became only the second bowler in Test history to 'perform the Perfect Ten' in a Test innings. English off-spinner Jim Laker performed this feat against Australia at Manchester in 1956.

Kumble's match figures of 14-149 in that game remain the third-best by an Indian in Tests. His first eight overs went for 37 runs. His last nineteen overs cost the same number of runs, but yielded him ten wickets! India won the match by 212 runs with Kumble bagging the Man of the Match award.


Javagal Srinath

Javagal Srinath (India) 8-86 at Kolkata, 1998-99:

It was the inaugural game of the first-ever Asian Test Championship. The lanky paceman from Bangalore took six wickets in nine overs with the new ball in the second innings, finishing with 8-86 and 13-132 in the match. However, India lost the Test by 46 runs.


Imran Khan

Imran Khan (Pakistan) - 40 wickets in the 1982-83 series:

The great all-rounder completely mesmerized the Indian batsmen with his deadly inswinging deliveries. He bagged forty wickets at an astonishingly low average of 13.95 in the six-match series. A famed batting line-up consisting of Sunil Gavaskar, Mohinder Amarnath, Dilip Vengsarkar, Gundappa Viswanath and Sandeep Patil failed to cope with his vicious pace and swing. Pakistan won the series 3-0.

Sikander Bakht (Pakistan) 8-69 at Delhi, 1979-80:
The Pakistani youngster's outswing brought him the best analysis by any visiting bowler in a Test innings in India, and a record for Pakistan that stood until the 1982-83 series. Sikander bowled 20.1 overs unchanged on the second day, capturing the first eight wickets that fell to a bowler after Imran Khan had retired due to injury in mid-over. India fought back in the second innings to ensure a draw.

Vinoo Mankad (India): 8-52 at Delhi, 1952-53 :
India's legendary all-rounder bagged eight wickets in Pakistan's first innings as the visitors were bowled out for a paltry 150. His innings analysis (8-52) and match figures (13-131) were Indian records at the time.
