Nadeem breaks List A world record

CHENNAI: Jharkhand spinner Shahbaz Nadeem Thursday broke a two-decade-old world record for best bowling figures in List A cricket, with an incredible haul of 8/10 against Rajasthan in the Vijay Hazare Trophy here.
Left-armer Nadeem, who has been knocking on the doors of the Indian team for a while now, ran through the Rajasthan batting to end a sensational spell. Rajasthan were all out for 73 runs in 28.3 overs with Nadeem’s final figures reading 10-4-10-8. Jharkhand eventually won the game by seven wickets.
The previous best bowling effort was also in the name of an Indian in Delhi left-arm spinner Rahul Sanghvi, who achieved figures of 8/15 against Himachal Pradesh in a 1997-98 match. Sanghvi appeared in just one Test for India, back in 2001 against Australia.
“I didn’t know until some people told me that I had broken the world record. It feels really good do well your team,” he told PTI reacting to his feat. Nadeem also bagged a hat-trick in the match, dismissing M K Lomror (6), C D Bist (0) in the 20th over and T N Dhillon (1) off the first ball of the 22nd over. (PTI)
