Best Answer

England's Jim Laker was the first cricketer to take all ten wickets in an innings, in a Test match against Australia at Old Trafford in 1956. Laker finished with the amazing figures of 10/53 in the second innings, outdoing his incredible 9/37 in the first innings. No other bowler has taken more than 17 wickets in a first-class match or a Test match.

How do you tell who has won in one day cricket?

The same way you would any other cricket match.If a match is limited-overs (such as Twenty20 or ODI), then a team has a set number of overs to accumulate runs. When those overs are played, the innings ends regardless of the number of wickets remaining. Ans a team can still be rendered all out prior to the last over. Regardless of how the first innings ends, if the second team can overtake the first one's run total before running out of wickets or overs, they win (and the margin would be by wickets). Otherwise, the first team win (and the margin would be by runs)
