All Ten: The Ultimate Bowling Feat


Written by Chris Overson
For a bowler, taking all ten wickets in an innings is the ultimate statistical feat. It is also a very rare one: in nearly 60,000 first-class matches it has been achieved only 81 times.
All Ten chronicles each of them, from Edmund Hinkly’s at Lord’s in 1848 to Zulfiqar Babar’s at Multan 161 years later, with match descriptions, scorecards and much more besides.
