On this day 20 years ago at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Anil Kumble became the second bowler in the history of Test Cricket after Jim Laker to capture all ten wickets in an innings. The setting being the second test of short two-match series with Pakistan.

In that series, Pak needed to score a whopping 420 runs and they were expecting a draw but Anil Kumble smashed the innings by taking all the wickets for 74 runs. Pakistan could able to score only 207 runs and non except Saeed Anvar crossed half-century.

That was the first time after 19 years, Team India won a test match against Pakistan. What a match it was!! Nostalgia for many Indian Cricket fans.
