The amazing Test match played in 1956 at Manchester, where the English off spinner Jim Laker picked 19 wickets in the match against Australia. He picked 9/37 in the first innings and followed it up with 10/53 in second innings. The bemused Australian batsmen surely had no clue as to what was being bowled to them. This match haul has never been matched, but Anil Kumble managed to pick 10 wickets in an innings against Pakistan at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi in 1999.
