Jim Laker and Anil Kumble are the only 2 players who have taken 10 wickets in an innings in Test matches. Is there any other bowler who has taken 10 wickets in an innings in any kind of international format, including one-day internationals, Twenty20 internationals or any other international cricket organised by the 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
    
@Lohoris Even I don't know what is wrong about this question. –  Mithlesh Kumar Feb 20 at 7:39

Is there any bowler who take 10 wicket haul in any kind of international format either Test, ODI or T20?

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

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

Mehboob Alam from Nepal took all 10 wickets in a World Cricket League match against Mozambique in 2008. Some very brief commentary on this feat can be found at the Guinness World Records website, and a match report is available on Cricinfo.

True but it was not an international match. –  hims056 Mar 22 '14 at 3:59

Nepal vs Mozambique is fairly clearly an international match. The OP's request includes "any kind of international format [...] organised by the ICC", so this is in scope. –  Philip Kendall Feb 22 at 21:38

The earliest bowler to take all 10 wickets in an ICC international cricket match with limited overs was Mehboob Alam (Nepal) for Nepal against Mozambique in Jersey, UK, on 25 May 2008.

Can you please give a source like scoreboard etc? –  hims056 Feb 20 at 7:20
    
I've added the scorecard link to Bibek's 2 year old answer referencing the same match. –  Philip Kendall Feb 22 at 21:39

The earliest bowler to take all 10 wickets in an ICC international cricket match with limited overs was Mehboob Alam (Nepal) for Nepal against Mozambique in Jersey, UK, on 25 May 2008. The match was contested as part of the 2008 ICC World Cricket League Division V competition. The accomplishment has only happened professionally in two other instances, both in Test cricket with unlimited overs: once each by Jim Laker (UK) and Anil Kumble (India)

This is a mix of recycling the question and other answers, as well as being wrong - 10 wickets in an innings has be done many times in domestic professional cricket. –  Philip Kendall Feb 28 at 9:42
