Correct Answer - Option 2 : West Indies

The correct answer is West Indies.

    • The cricketer was a leg-spin bowler of the Indian National team.
    • The bowler took 8 wickets in the first inning for 61 runs. With this, he became the fourth bowler to do so in the debut appearance.
    • In the second innings, he took 8 wickets for 75 runs and thus became the only player to date to have taken 16 wickets in the debut test match.

  • Hirwani played his last test match in the year 1996 against South Africa.
  • He played his debut ODI in 1988 against West Indies and last ODI in 1992 against Australia.
  • He holds another World Test record of bowling 59 overs unchanged without a break, during a test match against England in the year 1990.
