Indian women's cricketer scripts history, picks 10 wickets in an innings

Ten wickets in 4.5 overs by giving away just 12 runs including 1 maiden and a hat-trick, Kashvee Gautam of Chandigarh scripted history and recorded her name in golden letters in the ODI format. Gautam, captain of Chandigarh U-19 women’s cricket team, turned up with a record-breaking performance in the Under-19 ODI Trophy against the host team in Kadapa, Arunachal Pradesh. Gautam is India’s first cricketer to have taken 10 wickets in the limited overs format. BCCI has shared the video on its official Twitter handle.

Kashvee scripts history

Nepal’s Mehboob Alam set a record for taking 10 wickets in ODIs, 12 years before Kashvee. He took all 10 wickets, giving away just 12 runs in 7.5 overs in the ICC World Division match against Mozambique, playing for Nepal in 2008. His performance reduced Mozambique’s team to 19 runs and 9 of their batsman were dismissed on a golden duck and Nepal won the match by 264 runs. The Nepali team had scored 283 runs at the loss of seven wickets. More than a win, the match was remembered for the heroics of Alam, whose name was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Eight players could not open account

Eight players from Arunachal could not even open account in front of medium pacer Gautam. Four of these batswomen were dismissed on the very first ball bowled by the Chandigarh skipper. Itika Tyagi (10) managed to reach double digits for the hosts. Apart from Tyagi, opener Nabam Martha (04) and Nabam Para (03) were the only runs scorers in the team, while eight runs came in extras. Arunachal Pradesh’s team collapsed for just 25 runs in nine overs. Gautam dismissed two batswomen in her first over and even bettered it after she picked three wickets in the last three balls of her second over to pick up a hattrick.

Played a blistering innings of 49 runs

Earlier, Gautam played an innings of 49 runs from 68 balls which helped Chandigarh score 186 runs at the loss of four wickets. Chandigarh won the match by a record 161 runs.

10 wicket record holders in International cricket

In international cricket, only two players have displayed their charismatic performance of taking ten wickets in an innings of a match. England spinner Jim Laker took ten wickets in an innings of the Test against Australia in 1956. 43 years after Jim Laker, legendary Indian spinner Anil Kumble achieved this feat against arch-rivals Pakistan. He did this in 1999 at the Ferozeshah Kotla ground in New Delhi. Both these achievements came in test cricket.

In domestic cricket

Devashish Mohanty of Odisha picked ten wickets, playing for the East Zone against South Zone in 2001 while, Rex Rajkumar Singh of Manipur picked 10 wickets in a match against Mizoram in 2018 Cooch Behar Trophy.
