There is no denying that miracles happen in a cricket match, but if such a coincidence is seen, then wow comes out of the mouth.
It was a unique coincidence of Walker’s exceptional bowling. (symbolic picture)
Cricket is called a game of uncertainties anyway. True too. That’s why at any time any team wins the losing game while any team loses the won match. Well, there is one more thing that makes this game special. He is not a batsman, bowler or fielder, but a coincidence. Like life, coincidences happen in the game of cricket too. Although these coincidences are such that there is not much surprise, but the incident we are going to mention is such a coincidence in the world of cricket which is not common and cannot be left without being surprised at this. Of course, if you know about it, then you too will not be able to live without being a fan of this player and this coincidence.
Actually, we are talking about a player from England. Its name is VE Walker. And we are compelled to talk about it because this player had accomplished not one but two charisma on this day i.e. 22nd July. Walker is the first and only bowler in the world to take all ten wickets twice in an innings against two different teams on the same day in a span of six years. Walker first accomplished this feat against Surrey on 22 July 1859 while playing for England. Then he took 10 wickets for 74 runs. That is, the entire innings of the whole was dealt with alone.
Took 334 wickets in 145 matches
Six years later, V Walker wrapped up Lancashire’s entire innings while playing for Middlesex in 1865. This time he took all ten wickets for 104 runs. The interesting thing is that this time also the day was of today i.e. July 22. Walker never got a chance to play for the England national team, but he made a splash in first-class cricket. Walker played a total of 145 first-class matches in his career. In these, he hunted 334 batsmen. During this, the performance of taking 10 wickets for 74 runs in the innings was the best. Apart from this, he took five or more wickets in 27 innings. Whereas 8 times in the match, the wickets of 10 or more batsmen were put in their account. In his first-class career, he also scored 3384 runs at an average of 17.26 with the help of 1 century and 12 half-centuries.
