One of my favorite shows, SportsNight, has a storyline about a bowler getting all ten wickets in an inning but none of them understand why that is important. And then they never do. Can someone help? They were likely referencing Anil Kumble doing it in 1999.
What I (think) know: A bowler gets a wicket, the batsman is out. 10 wickets end the match.
My questions: How many wickets are normal for 1 inning? Who determines when to stop?
