“India Ki Jeet Se Jyada Aapke Charche Hain,” Sehwag Reacts To Ajaz Patel’s Net Bowling Incident


“India Ki Jeet Se Jyada Aapke Charche Hain,” Sehwag Reacts To Ajaz Patel’s Net Bowling Incident

The Indian team may have won the Mumbai test match against New Zealand but more than India’s triumph, the cricket lovers are talking about the achievement made by the New Zealand spinner Ajaz Patel who took all the 10 wickets of the Indian batsmen in the first innings.

While the first test match which was played at Kanpur got drawn, India managed to clinch the series by winning the Mumbai test match and though Mayank Agarwal was adjudged as the Player of the Match for his superb batting yet it was Ajaz Patel who took the cricket world by storm by becoming the third player to take 10 wickets in an innings. The other two bowlers who have achieved this impossible feat are England’s Jim Laker and India’s Anil Kumble.

Ajaz Patel was praised by people from the cricket fraternity as well as cricket fans and as a result, social media got flooded with posts appreciating him. The former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag also took to Twitter to shower praises on the Mumbai born Kiwi cricketer.

Viru Paaji tweeted, “One of the most difficult things to achieve in the game. 10 wickets in an innings. A day to remember for the rest of your life, #AjazPatel. Born in Mumbai, creating history in Mumbai. Congratulations on the historic achievement.”

Soon the Kiwi spinner responded on the tweet made by Sehwag and talked about the time when the former Indian destructive batsman smashed him during the nets.

Ajaz Patel tweeted, “Thank you @virendersehwag, funny story I still remember you smashing me out of the ground at the outer oval at Eden Park when I came in as a net bowler”.

In response, Virender Sehwag states that time does change and his achievement is so big that it has overshadowed India’s win.

Sehwag’s tweet read, “Waqt ki aadat hai , badalta zaroor hai. What you have achieved in Mumbai is extra-ordinary so much so that India ki jeet se jyada aapke charche hain. May you achieve ever more success and good luck.”

Ajaz Patel started his career as a seamer but then he shifted towards spin bowling and after taking total 14 wickets in the Mumbai test match, he made a record of taking the maximum wickets against India in a test match. Ajaz Patel has played 11 test matches so far in his career in which he has taken 43 wickets.

We also wish Ajaz Patel all the best for his future!
