U19 Cooch Behar Trophy: Manipur pacer Rex Rajkumar Singh takes all 10 wickets in an innings against Arunachal Pradesh

Posted On

Manipur pacer Rex Rajkumar Singh stormed into the limelight on Tuesday by taking all ten wickets in an innings during a Cooch Behar U19 Trophy match in Anantpur.

The youngster ended with stunning figures of 9.5-6-11-10 to dismiss Arunachal Pradesh out for just 36 in the second innings. Manipur cruised to a comfortable 10-wicket win.

The left-armer employed hooping in-swing to have five batsmen bowled, two LBW, two caught behind and one caught at gully. He was thrice on a hat-trick.

Rex Singh nabbed 5-33 in the first innings to finish the match with an astounding return of 15-44. He made his first-class debut for Manipur last month and snared 3-97 in that fixture.

The promising talent has also played six List A games with best figures of 5-17.

On social media, there are comparisons being made to the early days of India seamer Irfan Pathan. Rex Singh has a bowling action that is similar to the Baroda all-rounder, opening up his shoulders and executing a slight jump before release.

Meanwhile, former India Test captain Anil Kumble is still the only Indian bowler and just the second of all-time to bag a ten wicket-haul in international cricket.
