4 Indian players who made the record of taking a century and 5 wickets in a single test

 


Many players of the Indian team have registered their names in the record list by performing shockingly in Test cricket. The record of most runs and century in Test cricket is still in the name of Sachin Tendulkar, while Anil Kumble is at fourth place in terms of taking most wickets.

If we talk about all-round records, till now there have been 10 Indian players who, apart from scoring 1000 runs in Test cricket, have also taken 100 wickets. This list includes Vinoo Mankad, Kapil Dev, Ravi Shastri, Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

However, if we talk about the record of century and 5 wickets in an innings in the same Test, then only four Indian players have been able to do so. However, till now no Indian player has been able to make the record of century and 10 wickets in the match.
