This rare cricketer has once again proved that players of short stature are often successful in achieving big milestones.
John Wisden’s height was also the same as Sachin Tendulkar, but his exploits were also very big.
When Indian cricket team legend Anil Kumble took all ten wickets against Pakistan at Delhi’s Ferozeshah Kotla ground, England’s spinner Jim, who did this feat before him, also made a lot of headlines. After all, these were the only two bowlers who did such a miracle in Test cricket. It is another matter that in first class cricket, many bowlers have dismissed the entire team alone. But dismissing all ten players of a team in an innings of a match is not as easy as it sounds. Now just imagine that the player we are talking about not only wrapped up the entire innings of the opposing team alone, but sent all ten batsmen to the pavilion by bowling them out.
Actually, it is being talked about John Wisdon, who carried out this charismatic performance today i.e. on the 15th of July. This match was played in the home season of England between the teams of North and South (North vs South) at Lord’s. The match was of a single day. First the South team batted and the entire team was bundled out for just 36 runs. No player could touch the tens figure. Clarke took six wickets for North and three wickets were recorded in Wisden’s account. Now it was North’s turn to bat, who scored 131 runs in the first innings. For the team, the highest 27 runs came from the bat of Skeleton. While John Wisden contributed 22 runs. For South, Sherman showed six batsmen the way to the pavilion.
The storm of Wisden’s balls did not stop
But the real miracle had started now. South’s team came out to play the second innings. The team’s openers were quickly moved by Wisden and then at number three, Kaifin tried to handle the innings by scoring 24 runs. But then no batsman of South’s team could stop the storm of Wisden. Wisden single-handedly made all the ten players of the South team one after the other. And the interesting thing was that all ten players were bowled out by Wisden. The entire team was reduced to 76 runs and managed to win this match with an innings and 19 runs. Wisden’s stature was not as high as that of Sachin Tendulkar. He was five feet 4 inches.
