Moratuwa (Colombo) [Sri Lanka], Jan 7 (ANI): Sri Lanka left-arm spinner Malinda Pushpakumara has achieved the rare feat of claiming all ten wickets in a first-class match. Playing for Colombo Cricket Club, the 31-year-old took 10 for 37 to single-handedly bowl Saracens Sports Club out for 113 in the fourth-innings chase of 349 on Sunday. He also picked up a six-for in Saracens' first innings and finished with match figures of 16 for 110. Pushpakumara's 10/37 have also become the best figures recorded since 1995, where Naeem Akhtar took 10/28 for Rawalpindi Blues against Peshawar in Pakistan, and the best-ever cemented in the history books by a Sri Lanka player. The last bowler to take all the ten wickets was Pakistan's Test left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar, who took 10/146 for Multan against Islamabad in 2009. Colombo Cricket Club registered a massive 235 runs victory over Saracens Sports Club. (ANI)
