The 32-year-old Saxena is the 19th player in the list of all-rounders but he is the only uncapped player to achieve the record.

"I knew I completed 300 wickets but I did not know that I am the only uncapped player among the legends. I feel honoured to learn that I am in the same list with Polly Umrigar, Lala Amarnath, Kapil Dev etc," he was quoted as saying by the Sportstar.

Despite being among runs and wickets regularly for Kerala over the years, Saxena has failed to get look in into the Indian cricket team. Delhi Capitals had bought him ahead of the IPL 2019 but he has not got a game yet. Saxena though opined that he is quite happy at the Delhi set up with coach Ricky Ponting leading the preparations. But Saxena has got a couple of chances with India A. And the all-rounder is ready to plough his days in domestic cricket till his turn comes a day.
