6 Greatest Moments in Indian Cricket History

2. Anil Kumble’s 10 Wickets-haul

On February 7th in 1999, India’s legendary leg-spinner Anil Kumble picked up all ten wickets in one Test innings against Pakistan and, in the process, wrote his name into the pages of cricket history.

Kumble, only the second player to achieve these feet of picking up all the wickets of the opposition in an innings. And that too against the arch-rivals Pakistan was the icing on the cake.

Kumble’s brilliance saw India crush Pakistan by 212 runs in the second Test in New Delhi and square the short two-match series.

I don’t think I would have got there without their support. It was a great team effort, but the best thing is that India won the match to level the series.

I still remember the celebration Indians had after Kumble picked up the final wicket. It was history written all over the day and one of the great moment in Indian Cricket History.
