Ajaz Patel Auctioned His Jersey to Raise money for a Children Hospital

The ball that Ajaz used to achieve the record was donated to the museum. In Mumbai, India, a cricket museum was in the process of being established. The museum is called the Mumbai Cricket Association Museum (MCA). The MCA Museum is a museum. At the request of the authorities, Ajaz Patel auctioned his jersey to raise money for a children’s hospital in New Zealand and gave the ball to enhance his reputation there.

Ajaz Patel created history during the India-New Zealand Test in Mumbai at the end of last year. The New Zealand left-arm spinner became the third bowler in the history of Test cricket to capture ten wickets in an innings. Ajaz Patel grabbed all ten wickets by himself, embarrassing India with the spin.

This time, Ajaz auctioned off the memorable match’s shirt. The left-arm spinner auctioned the jersey to generate funds for an Auckland, New Zealand, children’s hospital. Which also has the autographs of every member of the opposing India cricket squad. The proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Starship Radiology Department at Children’s Hospital.

The 33-year-old Ajaz stated on social media, “It was a great day for me. However, the ability to aid children and their families is even more self-serving. I hope that they receive as much money as possible from the sale.

Prior to Ajaz, only two other bowlers in Tests have taken ten wickets in an innings. One of them is Englishman Jim Laker. The other is India’s Anil Kumble. Ajaz therefore created history by becoming the third bowler in the history of cricket to capture a “Perfect Ten.”

Shubhaman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Riddhiman Saha, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mayank Agarwal, Akshar Patel, Jayant Yadav, and Mohammad Siraj were each dismissed by the New Zealand spinners. At the conclusion of the first innings of the Mumbai Test, his bowling statistics of 48.5-12-119-10 stood out. And the growth rate every year is 2.46 percent.

Despite having taken five wickets twice before in his Test career, this was his best bowling performance. Despite his outstanding accomplishments, he has been cut from the team. He was not seen at home during the Bangladesh and South Africa series. Nonetheless, he has been selected for the England tour in June.
