It was Rameez Raja-- I know this one; Amarnath and Inzi are the only others

Amarnath was out for "Handling the ball" and not the same as "obstructing the field"...

Therefore, Mohinder Amarnath will probably forever have the distinction of being the only batsman ever to be given out both obstructing the field and handled the ball in ODI cricket!

No-- Amarnath was out obstructing the field for kicking the ball away back in 1989 against SL


True but but he was THE first to be out "HANDLED THE BALL even earlier in 85-86 series against the Aussies. Here's the scorecard

The first edition of the tournament in 1994-95 was held in Calcutta and was called the Kedia Cup
The second edition of the tournament in 1995-96 was held in Hyderabad and called the Liberty Cup
The 1996-97 and 1997-98 tournaments had no sponsor and hence no name !!!!

no mock

seriously

i meant to ask handling the ball because jimmy is the only guy to be out that way. and i can never remember that sheepish grin he had as he walked off the field with his bat behind his back. the game was the second final agains the aussies in the tr-nation b&h cup in 1985. we lost after having the advantage in the first game. we got those guys out for 171 and the aussies amnaged to score only one four. then we got into  the act and promptly made a career for some nondescript aussie bowlers.

Actually, there has been one other player to get out in this fashion in ODIs-- Darryl Cullinan, against the West Indies in 1999.

ithink he was facing greg mathews and he went forward. ball spun hit his pads and was rolling to the stumps. he turned back and fliked the ball away and then immediately started to grin. he was on his way. again thats what i remember. i also remember that in my younger days i had many girlfriends which again i can't completely be sure of. :-)

Batsman - Dennis Compton?

Compton's absent-mindedness was legendary. Colin Cowdrey writes that Compton turned up for the Old Trafford Test of 1955 against South Africa without his kitbag. Undaunted, he sauntered into the museum and borrowing an antique bat off the display, went on to score 155 and 79 not out. This absent-mindedness was particularly obvious in his tendency to run out his partners at the crease; Trevor Bailey declared that 'a call for a run from Compton should be treated as no more than a basis for negotiation.' Typically, at his brother Leslie's benefit match in 1955, he managed to run him out before he had faced a single ball.

Oldest to score a century is correct.

There have been players older than Geoff Boycott - Clarke and Aponso from the Netherlands who played ODIs well into their 40s. The ex WI cricketer Chris Lambert played for the US team when he was 43. Among regular teams, Brian Close and Clive Lloyd played ODIs in their early 40s.

Over to you Mock, with applause.

I was born in country A, made by debut for country B, retired when playing for country C, and became a citizen of country D. Who am I?

(2) And this is more interesting

The only wicket I ever took in test cricket is that of Sachin Tendulkar. Who am I?

is this John Traicos? born in Egypt, played for South Africa and then Zimbabwe and is an Australian citizen now. incidentally, he holds the record for most years between two test appearances - 22+ years!
