Anil Kumble's 10 wickets: How it happened
After losing a nerve-racking match in Chennai, India had to win at Kotla to go level with Pakistan in the two-match Test series held in 1999. On a pitch ransacked by Shiv Sena hooligans before the Test, Kumble did some plundering of his own. Chasing a fourth innings target of 420 runs, the Pakistani openers put up a century stand in quick time. Things were looking bleak for the home side, when Kumble broke through the opening partnership. Afridi's dismissal was a watershed one as the rest of the Pakistani wickets fell in a heap. At 207, when Wasim Akram edged the ball to Laxman at short leg, a piece of history was created -- Kumble became the second cricketer in Test match history to grab 10 wickets in an innings. India won the match and the victory was crafted by Anil Kumble: All on his own.
