yup- over to you

SMG denied Zaheer Abbas a century with his soiltary wkt

Kirmani's came in a match that was heading towards a dull draw so Pak sent in their tailenders and Kirmani, Gaekwad and Gavaskar also bowled for India. Still remember SMG running in from the sight screen to deliver the ball. And Kirmani bowled Azeem Hafeez (wasn't he the bowler with 3 fingers missing in one of his hand)

RD's wicket came in a match where all 11 Indian players bowled- even wkt keeper Ratra

Well done.  Applause.  Incidentally, he was also the oldest surviving England Test cricketer at age 91 when he died in 1983.

a fairly easy one for the stats-buffs.

Sobers, Botham, Hooper and "X"  - who is X and what record binds these cricketers?

1000 runs, taken 100 wickets and held 100 catches in Tests, I guess the recent addition is Warne ???

Shane Warne.  These players have all scored at least 2000 Test runs, taken at least 100 Test wickets, and taken 100 catches.  Interestingly, with two more catches, Jacques Kallis will join this very elite club.

Another 42 runs for Shane Warne and the stat can be increased to a minimum of 3000 Test runs as Sobers, Botham, Hooper, and Kallis all have those many Test runs.

Who is the only batsman to score hundreds in all three sessions of the same day in first class cricket ?
(ie, he scored 100 before lunch, 100 more between lunch and tea and another 100 runs before close)

Shaun Pollock being stranded on 99 has an interesting story behind it.  Pollock was batting with Ntini at the time and he went and told Ntini, during a mid-pitch conference, to just block out 4 balls, after having taken a single on the second ball of the over.  Ntini agreed and promptly got out caught at mid-on on the very next delivery!  Shaun Pollock leaves the field shaking his head, while Ntini is as peppy as ever.

Applause.  Barely takes anybody anytime whatsoever.  Over to you.  On a sidenote, the highest batting score while still losing was Ricky Ponting's 242 against us at Adelaide.  If you recollect, Australia was 556-7 and still lost (Kumble taking the last 3, including Ponting, for no more runs).

Name three cricketers that have scored centuries on their country's debut (had to be the player's debut Test as well).

John Bracewell?  He was the first non-keeper to take four catches in an ODI.

Only India and England share this test match batting record..... (will give a hint if it is too vague)

Since, there may be multiple records, to clarify, the question is about individual records and not team records.

Nope. It is an individual players' record while playing for that country. Also, doesen't involve stats like centuries, runs, avg etc.
