Twenty-Twenty is always a batsman-friendly game. There is very little chance for a bowler for errors. But it was not in a case for young Indian teenager Akash Chaudhary.
15-year-old young left-arm fast bowler Akash Chaudhary suddenly came into the spotlight after he takes all 10 wickets in a local T20 game in Jaipur. Akash Chaudhary was playing for a Disha Cricket Academy and he makes this record against Pearl Academy in the Late Bhawe Singh T20 Tournament.

Akash begs all 10 wickets of Pearl Academy and did not concede a single run in his 4 overs. He has a perfect bowling figure of 4-4-0-10. Seven batsmen of Pearl Academy fails to open their account. He also takes a hat-trick in his 10 wickets.
“I want to play for Rajasthan and ten for the country. That’s the target,” Chaudhary is quoted as saying by The Hindu.
Right now Akash Chaudhary has been training under former Rajasthan Ranji cricketer Vivek Yadav.
In International cricket, the best bowling figure is 6/8 recorded by Ajantha Mendis. Thus far, only Jim Laker and Anil Kumble have managed to take 10 wickets in a single innings in international cricket. Both had done so in Test matches.
