Ajaz Patel entered the record books when he took 10 wickets in an innings against India at the Wankhede stadium. Playing his 2nd Test in India, Patel was sensational against the home team.
He became only the third bowler after Jim Laker and Anil Kumble to achieve this landmark. The 33-year-old has auctioned the jersey he wore in the Test match for a noble cause.
The Stuff.co.nz has reported that Patel is raising funds for the Starship Radiology Department at New Zealand’s national children’s hospital.
“My wife and I went to Starship Hospital for the treatment of our daughter. The doctors and staff were amazing and we wanted to give back … this is one way we can do that,” he was quoted as saying by Stuff.co.nz.
