Aditya Dole, a Maharashtra Under-22 right-arm medium-fast bowler, took all 10 wickets in an innings against Rajasthan in their CK Nayudu Trophy match in Visakhapatnam.

As one would expect, Dole said his bowling figures of 16.1-2-63-10 could not be compared to Anil Kumble's feat, which came in a Test match. "Never in the wildest of dreams I ever thought that I could do it. It happened only for the support of our captain Nikhil Paradkar and the team," Dole told Daily News Analysis, a Mumbai-based newspaper.

After Maharashtra had posted a first-innings total of 171, Dole reduced Rajasthan to 76 for 6 on day one. He was handed the ball 20 overs into the second day and proceeded to tear through the tail.

"I had taken nine wickets and my captain asked me if he could take the tenth one," Dole said. "I said, 'Please do.' But he was kidding as he had placed a very causal field while he was bowling from the other end and there were no indication that he would spoil my feat.

"Definitely a ten-wicket haul is every bowler's dream and I am happy I have done it so early [in my career]."

Ajay Shirke, the Maharashtra Cricket Association president, said Dole's ten-wicket haul was a bonus to a team that had been doing well. "The boys are doing wonders and Dole has taken 19 wickets in the last four matches," he said.

Rajasthan made up for their poor first-innings performance by bowling out Maharashtra for 175 in the second innings. At the end of day two they were at 36 for 1, chasing a target of 208.
