Wow..hirwani 16 wickets in debut

Quote:
"He was aided, it must be stressed, by a deplorably under-prepared pitch," said Wisden's correspondent, Dicky Rutnagur. And though Hirwani took 20 further wickets in his next three Test appearances, his fortunes changed when he left the spin-friendly surfaces of India. The magic never quite returned, and the arrival of Anil Kumble sentenced him largely to domestic cricket.
found this on cricinfo but still impressive
