Notes

1. Wisden's 10 wickets were all bowled

2. No analyses are available for the first two ever instances (by Hinkly and Wisden)

3. In EM Grace's match one batsman was absent, so he took all 10 wickets to fall

4. AP Freeman achieved the feat three times, at which time he was 42, 43 and 44

5. AE Moss took all ten in the first innings of his first-class debut. He only played four matches in all

6. The oldest man to achieve the feat is Billy Bestwick in 1921 when he was 46 years and 116 days old. He achieved his ten-for on June 20, 1921, and on the same day Jack White took all ten wickets for Somerset at Worcester

7. The youngest man is Imran Adil in 1989-90 when he was 18 years 344 days old

8. Jim Laker is the only man to achieve the feat twice in one season (1956), both times against Australia. On both occasions Colin McDonald top scored with 89
