  • PP Ojha {6
    for 34} and R Ashwin {4 for 37} shared the ten wickets equally in the West
    Indian second innings at Mumbai in the final Test of the just concluded
    India-West Indies series. Their feat provides 19th
    occasion of two Indian bowlers sharing the wickets in a Test innings. The feat
    also provides the sixth such occasion against West Indies. 


    Wankhede
    Stadium, Mumbai has witnessed three such occasions - vs. England in Dec 1981, Vs West Indies in Dec 1981
    and vs. West Indies in Nov 2011. All the
    nineteen occasions are listed below.
