Meghalaya's Baisoya Grabs All 10 Wickets in an Innings in U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy

Tezpur: Off-spinner Nirdesh Baisoya achieved a stupendous feat on Wednesday by grabbing all 10 wickets in an innings while playing for Meghalaya against Nagaland in an U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy match on Wednesday.

Baisoya, who is originally from Meerut, returned with stunning figures of 10 for 51 in 21 overs with 10 maidens to sent Nagaland packing for just 113 on Day 1.

Leg-spinner Anil Kumble registered such magical figures of 10/74 against Pakistan in the Delhi Test in 1999 which India won by 212 runs.

Manipur pacer Rex Singh created history last year as he accomplished the rare feat of taking 10 wickets in an innings in a Cooch Behar Trophy match.

Speaking about his feat, the young spinner told IANS, "It’s yet to sink in. I was not born when Anil Kumble picked up 10 wickets, but I heard a lot about it. I always wanted to do something like that, never thought it would happen so early in my life. I just spoke to my parents and they became emotional as well.

"I had picked six wickets by the first session. That is when I started to believe that I can go for all 10. My teammates backed me a lot. There was turn on the pitch since morning and the overhead conditions also helped.

"It was a dream come true for me and I never expected this. I have to keep working hard as I have a long way to go. I am just 15. I want to make my family, sisters, brothers and parents proud."
