It is also the second time when a bowler captured five or more wickets while performing such a feat. The previous best figures were in the name of Courtney Walsh, who had captured five wickets conceding one run (5 for 1) in 4.3 overs in the game between West Indies and Sri Lanka at Sharjah on December 3, 1986.
Another occasion when a bowler has captured more wickets than the runs conceded was at Sydney on December 17, 1992 when Phil Simmons of West Indies captured four wickets conceding three runs at Sydney.
