Ranji Trophy 2018-19: Parvez Rasool becomes fourth Indian to eight wickets in an innings and a century
Interestingly, another J&K player, Ravinder Pandit, also achieved it against Services in 1986-87.
Jammu & Kashmir captain Parvez Rasool on Friday became the fourth Indian cricketer to score a hundred and take eight wickets in an innings of a first-class match, following career-best figures of 8/85 with 115 in his team s second innings of their 2018-19 Ranji Trophy Elite Group C round four match against Services at Palam.
Interestingly, one of the fourth before him was also a Jammu & Kashmir player, Ravinder Pandit, and the opponents back in the 1986-87 season were also Services.
Overnight on 53, Rasool moved to his tenth first-class hundred soon after lunch on Friday while crossing 4,000 career runs. This made him the fourth Indian cricketer to take eight wickets in an innings and score a hundred in a first-class match.
Those to do so before him are Chandra Sarwate for Holkar versus Mysore in the 1945-46 Ranji Trophy season, J&K s Pandit against Services in 1986-87 and the former Madhya Pradesh allrounder Jalaj Saxena who did it in consecutive season for Kerala.
Sarwate made 101 and then claimed 9/61; Pandit made 158 and took 8/33; and Saxena in 2017-18 against Rajasthan scored an unbeaten 105 to go with 8/85 and then this season scored 133 and took 8/45 against Andhra to become the first Indian cricketer to achieve the milestone on two occasions.
On day one at Palam, Rasool claimed the first three Services wickets to fall and a day layer recorded career-best figures of 33.4-8-85-8 by adding Rajat Paliwal, Rahul Gahlaut, Devender Lohchan, Arun Bamal and Devendra Lohchab.
His success came after J&K were bowled out for 95 on day one.
