Ajaz Patel becomes just the 3rd man ever to take 10 wickets in a Test innings & the first Kiwi, bettering Sir Richard Hadlee’s 9-52 in Brisbane in 1985.

As soon as Ajaz picked up his tenth wicket, India's Ravichandran Ashwin also stood up to give a standing ovation to the Kiwi spinner, recognizing the remarkable feat.
Earlier, Australia's Jim Laker was the first cricketer to scalp 10 wickets in a Test innings in 1956 and that was followed by India's Anil Kumble in 1999 against Pakistan.
