I know that Jim Laker and Anil Kumble are the only 2 players who have record of 10 wickets in an innings in Test matches.

My Question :

Is there any bowler who has taken 10 wickets in an innings in any kind of international format either Test, ODI, T20 or other cricket organised by ICC?

Just for clarification: taking a 10-wicket haul often means taking 10+ wickets over the two innings of a Test match, which has been done many times. It's better to refer to taking 10 wickets in an innings, so there's no misunderstanding. –  Spinner Aug 13 '13 at 12:52
I'm clueless about cricket, but why does this post have a score of -7? –  Lohoris Mar 14 '14 at 8:06

At present, only two players you have mentioned have taken 10 wickets in an innings in any type of international matches.

Best bowling figure in ODI is: 8.0-3-19-8 by Chaminda Vaas of Sri Lanka vs Zimbabwe as Colombo (SSC) on 8 Dec 2001.

In Test, ODI and T20 I know but I don't about other international tournament like Under-19, Under-21, List-A, etc. –  Mithlesh Kumar Aug 13 '13 at 9:08
@mkr9 - Under-21 (AFAIK), List-A are not international tournament. I have edited for Under-19 Test and ODI. –  hims056 Aug 13 '13 at 9:11
why not there is world cup for all under-21,under-19 etc organised by ICC. Also for List -A matches, currently there is on going tournament hosted in South Africa. –  Mithlesh Kumar Aug 13 '13 at 9:16
I am not saying all Tournaments organised by ICC is a international tournament but in which different countries take part then will be it called. –  Mithlesh Kumar Aug 13 '13 at 9:22
@mkr9 - No. As you are talking about SA tri-series it is not an international tournament. –  hims056 Aug 13 '13 at 9:31

Mehebob alam from nepal. He holds the guinnessworldrecords for taking all 10 wickets in match organized by icc in UK 2008 against Mozambique.
