Laker ended with outstanding numbers of 51.2 overs, 23 maidens 53 sprints and 10 wickets. If that was sensational in itself, Laker really picked up nine wickets in Australia’s first innings as well. In fact, Australian opener Jim Burke was the only batsman Laker did not brush aside twice in the Test. Burke was selected up by Tony Lock in Australia’s first innings.

For the record, Laker’s first innings numbers were as pursues – 16.4 overs, 4 maidens, 37 sprints and nine wickets. Laker’s presentation was out of the world in the sense that Australia had some of the utmost batsmen in the world at that issue in their line-up.

Laker’s 19 wickets in a agree stay a world record till designated day in all types of cricket, and might not ever be broken.

The only other bowler in Test cricket to catch all ten wickets in an innings is India’s retired legend Anil Kumble. He accomplished the rarest of rare feat against Pakistan in February 1999 at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi. Pakistan were following 420 to win the check, and were comfortably positioned at 101 for 1 at one stage before all torment smashed loose. one time Kumble smashed the unfastening stand between Saeed Anwar and Shahid Afridi, he just ran through the Pakistan batting alignment, dispatching back one batsman after the other.

The figures of runs he provided away are not accessible to statisticians. John Wisden created a unique all-ten record when he bowled all ten South of England batsman while comprising North of England at Lord’s in 1850.
