'Delight to watch': Hadlee praises Ajaz for taking all 10 wickets in Test against India

'Delight to watch': Hadlee praises Ajaz for taking all 10 wickets in Test against India

Christchurch, Dec 5 (UNI) One of the greatest all-rounders Richard Hadlee on Sunday heaped praises on New Zealand left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel, saying it was a "delight to watch" him taking all 10 wickets in the ongoing second Test match against India.
In the first session of day two, Ajaz became the only third bowler after England's Jim Laker (10/53 against Australia in 1956) and India's Anil Kumble (10/74 against Pakistan in 1999) to claim the 10-wicket haul.
The Mumbai-born Ajaz also became the first New Zealand bowler to take all 10 wickets, bettering Hadlee’s 9/52 against trans-tasman rival Australia in 1985.
"Congratulations to Ajaz on a superb bowling performance. It was a delight to watch; a well deserved reward, and a great moment for him, New Zealand cricket, and world cricket. To be in the great company of Jim Laker and Anil Kumble is very special indeed. Good luck to him and the team in the second innings," Hadlee said in a statement.
