MOST WICKETS BY A BOWLER IN A TEST MATCH: JIM LAKER

MOST WICKETS BY A BOWLER IN A TEST MATCH JIM LAKER

Immortal English off-spinner Jim Laker’s name is written all over this record with mind-boggling figures of 19 wickets for just 90 runs. Laker who was the first bowler to take all 10 wickets in an innings in international cricket in the second innings of the same Test had sent nine Australian batsmen back to the pavilion in the first essay too in that encounter at Old Trafford. Laker’s heroics made sure that the Englishmen completed an innings and 170-run triumph, and hence retained the Ashes.
