MCA president Vijay Patil gifted him a score sheet and a memento to mark the special moment. The Kiwi pacer, who spent his childhood in Jogeshwari – in the suburbs of the city – also donated a ball and a tee for the proposed MCA museum.

“It’s a special occasion for me and my family. To be able to do that [10-for] is special. I’m knackered but I’ll use my quarantine time to recover,” said Patel after the match. “It’s a different challenge to bowl back home, that’s the beauty of Test cricket, it’s about adapting your game plan and bowling accordingly. To be honest, I still don’t know how to put the 10-for into words. I’m trying to absorb it, been flooded with hundreds and thousands of messages. It’s overwhelming at the moment.”
