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.
