C.K. Nayudu Trophy: Sidak Singh does an Anil Kumble, grabs 10 wickets in an innings




Sidak Singh

It was a dream come true for the young Puducherry left-arm spinner Sidak Singh as he picked up all 10 wickets of an innings against Manipur.

In a U-23 match of the Colonel C.K. Nayudu Trophy, 19-year-old Sidak returned with exceptional bowling figures of 17.5-7-31-10, reported Sportstar.

Earlier, Uttar Pradesh-born Sidak had represented Mumbai in seven T20s but is now playing for Puducherry as an ‘outstation’ player.

Courtesy Sidak’s heroics, Manipur were bundled out for a mere 71 in their first innings. Three wickets off the ten dismissals were caught and bowled.

Sidak at the age of 15 was the youngest to play for Mumbai after legendary Sachin Tendulkar, who had donned the Mumbai jersey at 14.

Back in 1999, veteran leg-spinner Anil Kumble, India’s most successful bowler of all time, grabbed a 10 wicket haul in the second Test against Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium. He thus achieved what England’s Jim Laker had done many years before his arrival into Test cricket.

Anil-Kumble

Albeit at the domestic level, Sidak Singh has therefore followed the footsteps of some stalwarts of the Gentleman’s Game. Bagging 10 wickets in an innings is not an easy task whatsoever, regardless of the level at which the game is being played.
