If you are reading this, you would be aware that bowlers have taken all ten wickets in an innings on three occasions-Jim Laker in 1956, Anil Kumble in 1999 and Ajaz Patel in 2021.
You may have imagined that there must have been some other instances where someone took wickets and catches when added together totaled ten. This thought may have occurred to many in the Ind vs Eng Test at Chennai, when “Sir” Ravindra Jadeja took 7 wickets and 3 catches in the 3rd innings: http://www.espncricinfo.com/india-v-england-2016-17/engine/match/1034817.html
However, this was not so. Look at the scorecard of this innings carefully:
Jadeja took 7 wickets, missing out on Bairstow, Dawson and Rashid. He did catch Bairstow and Rashid but was NOT involved in the dismissal of Dawson. His third catch was the caught-and-bowled dismissal of Jennings. So he had a hand in 9 of the 10 dismissals.
To identify all these cases, we look at the instances of
10 wickets (no doubt)
9 wickets plus 1 or more catches
8 wickets plus 2 or more catches
7 wickets plus 3 or more catches (e.g. Sir Ravindra)
There are no instances of 6 wickets and 4 or more catches.
These cases are summarized below:
By the process used in Jadeja’s example we identify only FOUR (now FIVE) such cases: Laker, Kumble, A. Patel, Hadlee and Tayfield where the bowler had a hand in all ten wickets. The match scorecards can be seen here:
The cases of Laker, Kumble and Patel need no explanation.
In Hadlee’s case, he caught Lawson off VR Brown’s bowling to add to his 9 wickets.
In Tayfield’s case, he caught Insole off Goddard’s bowling to add to his 9 wickets. His second catch was of Cowdrey (caught and bowled).
And this list does include a genuine knight in Sir Richard Hadlee, unlike the unrecognized knight from Saurashtra.
