Rajasthan teenager picks 10 wickets for no run in T20 game

Rajasthan teenager picks 10 wickets for no run in T20 game”

Akash Choudhary hails from Bharatpur district near the Rajasthan-Uttar Pradesh border. This is believed to be a new record of sorts as none has been able to achieve this feat at any level of T20 cricket in the world.

After hitting headlines for a stupendous 10-wicket haul in a local T20 match, Akash Chaudhary wants to take the next big step.

Pearl Academy won the toss and elected to field first. In reply, Pearl Academy were bundled out for just 36, thanks to Choudhary's incredible feat. Prior to Akash, Anil Kumble had floored the Pakistani batting line up in February 1999, scalping 10 wickets for 74 runs.

Before you go back to read that again, the bowling figures of four overs, four maidens, zero run and ten wickets actually does belong to Choudhary.

Akash Choudhary's figures were 4-4-0-10, which also included a hat-trick. Disha Cricket Academy posted a total of 156 runs in their quota of 20 overs, putting Pearl Academy into bat. He would often take me along for this matches.

He trains under former Ranji Trophy cricketer Vivek Yadav in Rajasthan, according to Sportstar.

Coming from a lower middle-class family in Bharatpur, Akash stays at the Aravali Cricket Club campus on the outskirts of Jaipur to pursue his dreams.
