Yes Poondu, you are right. Applause to you (and Mock). Interestingly Tendulkar was caught by Traicos of Ranbeep's bowling. He played just one test for this solitary wicket.

Since Mock answered the first part and you decline  :(, the next question is over to Mock.

Ok I have got one, But it may be easy. Here goes


Who is the only cricketer to score a century and take a five-for on test debut ? You will find an interesting umpire in this match whose name is pretty similar to one of our indian ODI great.

NZ's Bruce Taylor against India way back in 1965.

My Question : Who is the only player to have scored a hundred and taken 5 wickets in an ODI? (there are a few with a hundred and 4 wickets including the above umpire's namesake)

Mock, Viv Richards was famous for this but recently he was eclipsed by Paul Collingwood who slaughtered Bangladesh's bowling and then took 6 wickets.

Who are the two fastest run scorers for India in test matches - criteria at least 1000 runs. Such stats are typically maintained only after the ODI era started, so that is a big hint.

I assume you mean the best strike rate? Sehwag should be on top, i would think! Gotta think who could be the next..

Okay - hint time. Big time hint. He has been in the news recently and has been discussed in this forum.

Also, Krish Srikkanth, Kapil Dev have no recorded test cricket strike rate that I could find on any of the databse sites -- suggesting that no one has kept track of them :-(

So think more recent than even Srikkanth.

Just off the top of my head, I will go with Sehwag and Tendulkar, unless Harbhajan has a 1000 runs (will have to check that)-- no, only 986.

Anyway, just mentioned Srinath off the top of my head.

Wild sloggers => better strike rate than proper batsmen.

And Srinath is the only bowler I could think of (in the recent past) who might possibly have 1000 test runs.

Sachin's is definitely the highest amongst the 3.  He has a SR of around 56, I believe.  Ganguly and Dravid have strike rates of 48 and 42 respectively.

The answer to the question about the batsman with the second highest strike rate (after Sehwag at 75.7) with at least 1000 runs is Vinod Kambli, with a strike rate of 59.4.

  • Dhoni with is at 602 runs with a strike rate of 73. Eventually he will overtake Kambli.]
  • Harbhajan Singh is at 986 runs with a strike rate of 67.95 and will claim second spot in the next few tests that he plays.

Sorry if this was a lame question. It is likely that Kapil Dev and Srikkanth would be ahead of Kambli if their strike rates were tracked. Also, strangely, Tendulkar's test cricket strike rate is not easily available.

You may be right about Sachin (probably are). I seem to recall reading somewhere that Ganguly and Sachin had more or less the same strike rate, but I'm probably mistaken.

Database query with maximization. Kambli played 17 tests 21 innings as follows:

16 (28) 18* (26) 59 (94) 224 (411) 227 (301) 125(220)  4(6)  120(241) 5(17) 82(132) 57(89)
9(15) 19(39) 40(39) 0(6) 0(3) 6(17) 18(18) 0(5) 27(56) 28(60)


If you do the math - 1084 runs, 1823 balls for a strike rate of 59.46

Anyways, over to you with applause.

Legend has it that he was inspired to adopt this style after watching his sister use it, as a practical way to counter her clothing which was getting in her way, while practising cricket with her brother. What am I talking about and who is this person? (of course, this is a legend whose accuracy is not guaranteed but an interesting one nevertheless). The first time he did it in a match, he was disallowed by the umpire and he left the field in disgust, mounting his horse, never to return to the field!

Over the years, it has become such a common aspect of cricket.
