The era of modern-day cricket has been witness to some of the most unbelievable feats that weren’t possible few decades ago. And, as international cricket flourished with an increased competitive edge, the domestic formats across the globe also moved along.
The Australian domestic league is a prime example. The local players Down Under seem to be making a habit of achieving some remarkable feats. Only recently, West Augusta B Grade’s Josh Dunstan smashed 307 in a 35-overs-a-side game where he plundered 40 sixes in his blistering innings. His triple-ton made up for more than 86 percent of his side’s total of 354/9.

After Dunstan impressed with the bat, it was the turn of Victorian third-grade cricketer Nick Gooden to shine with the ball. Playing for Yallourn North in the Central Gippsland cricket competition, Gooden managed to record a triple hat-trick, which basically means five wickets in five balls.
Following in the footsteps of Australia, India has managed to find their very own miracle worker in Akash Choudhary who etched his name in the history books for a rare feat that was thought to be almost impossible.
In an astonishing achievement, the 15-year-old from Rajasthan bagged all 10 wickets without conceding a run in a domestic T20 game in Jaipur on Wednesday. The left-arm seamer pulled this off while representing his side, Disha Cricket Academy against Pearl Academy in the Late Bhawer Singh T20 tournament.

According to reports, Pearl Academy opted to field after winning the toss and managed to restrict their opponents to 156 runs in 20 overs. In reply, Disha Cricket Academy found an absolute match-winner in Akash whose incredible spell saw the opposition be bowled out for a mere 36 runs.

Unbelievably, Akash began his first over with two wickets. He managed to take two each in the second and third overs. And, saving his best for the last, he notched up a brilliant hat-trick in his fourth and final over.
Well, let’s hope this youngster continues to make waves with astounding performances which will undoubtedly help him rise through the ranks to eventually play for Team India one day.
