For Test cricket bowlers, taking five wickets in an inning is said to be the equivalent of scoring a century with the bat.

But what then of bowlers that take allĀ 10 wickets in an innings?

What is that worth, and how many times has the significant been achieved?

In the well-chronicled history of Test cricket, there have only ever been three instances of a bowler taking all 10 wickets in a single innings.

From an English off-breaker in Manchester to an Indian-born Black Cap turning it on back in Mumbai, here is every instance of a Test cricket bowler taking all ten poles in a single dig.
