Indian teen completes perfect game

Akash Choudhary takes all 10 wickets without conceding a run in T20 match in Jaipur

In the batsman's game that is Twenty20 cricket, an Indian teenager has reportedly got one back for the bowlers with the perfect figures of 4-4-0-10.

No, that's not a typo. That's four overs, four maidens, zero runs and 10 wickets.

Playing for Disha Cricket Academy against Pearl Academy in a T20 tournament in Jaipur, Akash Choudhary single-handedly led his side to a 130-run victory, with seven of his victims falling without scoring.

A 15-year-old left-arm medium-pacer, Choudhary opened the bowling and picked up two wickets in each of his first three overs and then finished the match with four wickets, including a hat-trick, in his last.

Most impressive of all was the fact that all of Choudhary's dismissals – six bowled and four leg before wicket – came without the help of any of his teammates.

And he did it all without conceding a single run off the bat.

Giriraj Bagari (13 from 12 balls) was the only Pearl Academy batsman to reach double figures while it was extras that topped the scoring, 16 runs made up of eight wides, seven leg byes and a bye.

None of which came from Choudhary, who surely secured one of the most clear-cut player-of-the-match awards in the game.
