Rajinder Goel holds the record of most first-class wickets in the history

Rajinder Goel is a former first-class cricketer from Haryana who played for various domestic teams but never got the national call. Just like a rolling stone, he played for 4 teams during his domestic career. He made his first-class debut on 23 December 1958 for Patiala against the Services. After that, from 1959/60 to 1962/63, he played for Southern Punjab, and from 1963 to 1973 he played for Delhi.

He ended his first-class career on 9 March 1985 after playing for 10 years for his home side, Haryana. He holds the record of most wickets in the Ranji trophy. Goel bagged 750 wickets in his career and became the first one to achieve this feat. However, his fortune didn’t favor him as Indian team already had 4 front-line spinners in their squad which kept him away from the national squad.
