Story highlights

The left-arm medium pacer took a remarkable 10/11 in India’s four-day tournament for under-19 players, the Cooch Behar Trophy. 

An 18-year-old from Manipur became the latest cricketer to accomplish the rare feat of taking 10 wickets in an innings.

Identified as Rex Rajkumar Singh, a left-arm medium pacer, took a remarkable 10/11 in India’s four-day tournament for under-19 players, the Cooch Behar Trophy. 

With figures 9.5-6-11-10, six of his 9.5 overs were maidens and found himself on a hat-trick thrice. 

Rajkumar bowled five batsmen, two of his wickets were lbw, two caught behind and one caught by another player. 

His efforts helped Manipur bowl Arunachal Pradesh out for a paltry 36 in their second innings at the Rural Development Trust Stadium in Anantapur on Tuesday, 12 December.

Manipur, who had posted 122 in their first innings in response to the opposition's 138, got the 55 runs they needed in 7.5 overs to complete an easy 10-wicket win.

Singh, who had made his first-class debut in the Ranji Trophy this season, finished with 15 wickets in the match, having taken 5/33 the first time.
