Shahbaz Nadeem has registered his name in the books of history, by the virtue of his splendid display for his team Jharkhand against Rajasthan, smashing them with figures of 10-4-10-8 in the Vijay Hazare Trophy match at Murugappa Ground, Chennai.

The record, which was previously held by Rahul Sanghvi, who had taken 8 for 15 for Delhi against Himachal Pradesh at Una, back in 1997-98 was bettered by the Jharkhand ace. Nadeem took the first eight Rajasthan wickets to fall before Anukul Roy dismissed Rahul Chahar to end the sequence.

Keith Boyce (8 for 26) was the first to take an eight-wicket haul, back in 1971, in the early days of limited-overs cricket. Derek Underwood (8 for 31) was the second, in 1987, and Boyce’s record was broken the next year, by Michael Holding (8 for 21). Sanghvi went past Holding over twenty years ago.

Among the names above, Chaminda Vaas is the only one to take eight wickets in an ODI.
