Cricket News: Despite India’s overwhelming triumph against New Zealand in the second Test match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the Blackcaps’ spinner Ajaz Patel has been the centre of attention. This is due to his historic achievement in the first Indian innings when he became only the third bowler in Test match cricket history to take all ten wickets in an innings.
Following the match, former India opener Virender Sehwag lavished accolades on the Kiwi bowler, claiming that the left-arm spinner had accomplished one of the most difficult feats in the game.
“One of the most difficult things to achieve in the game. 10 wickets in an innings. A day to remember for the rest of your life, #AjazPatel. Born in Mumbai, creating history in Mumbai. Congratulations on the historic achievement,” Sehwag tweeted.
While thanking Viru for his wishes, Ajaz also recounted an old occasion in which he was a net bowler and Sehwag had blasted him for sixes.
“Thank you, @virendersehwag, for sharing this amusing storey. When I first came in as a net bowler, I recall you hammering me out of the ground at Eden Park’s outer oval “He’d said something.
This is the tweet in question:

And now, the first Indian to score a triple century in a Test match has responded to the remark, saying: “Badalta zaroor hai, waqt ki aadat hai. What you’ve accomplished in Mumbai is incredible, to the point where India ki jeet se jyada aapke charche hain. May you have continued success and good fortune.”
The following is the Twitter conversation between the two:
Waqt ki aadat hai , badalta zaroor hai. What you have achieved in Mumbai is extra-ordinary so much so that India ki jeet se jyada aapke charche hain. May you achieve ever more success and good luck. https://t.co/yqA34WOGZG

In the second and final Test match against India, Ajaz took a total of 14 wickets, setting a new record for the most wickets taken in a Test match against India. It’s worth noting that the bowler began his career as a pacer before transitioning to spin bowling. Patel has 43 wickets from 11 Test matches so far and will now have a break before returning to play Test matches at home.
