Krejza 6th to claim 8 wickets in debut innings

Jason Krejza on Friday became only the sixth bowler in Test cricket history to claim eight wickets in an innings on debut. He is the first to do so since Lance Klusener.

Interestingly Klusener also performed this feat against India. Australia’s Bob Massie and India’s Narendra Hirwani took eight wickets in both innings of the Test.
