I am starting a new thread. It's a fun thread. The rule is very simple.

1. Anyone can become a CricketGuru and ask a question which felow members will try to answer.
2. Once the question is correctly answered the CricketGuru will acknowledge that and any member can post a new question and take the role of CricketGuru.
3. Please do not post a new question before the current question is answered.
4. Question should be cricket related.
5. Member who will take the role as the cricket guru should acknowledge the correct answer when it is posted.

So, as the strater of the thread I take the opportunity to become the first CricketGuru.

My question is

1. Who holds the record for highest first class score for Bangladesh?

Miraz

Thanks abdulw11 for your answer and it's a correct one. His score of 224 for Biman against Khulna is the highest one.

Well done !!

Now, the next question is

1. Who is the first player in the history of test cricket to achieve 100 test caps for his country?

1. Who is the first player in the history of test cricket to achieve 100 test caps for his country?
Colin Cowdrey.

If my answer is correct, which i am pretty sure of (thanks to cricinfo), my question is, among BD bowlers, who had the best bowling analysis (in ODI of course) before achieving test status?

Miraz
May 30, 2006, 11:14 AM
Exactly. Thats great.

Very true and he also scored century in that test to become first test batsman to score century in his 100th test.

So, it's the time to ask another question

I'll wait for felow members to post a question.

Spot on!! Tendulkar_Mcgrath. Saiful took 4/36 against Srilanka at Sharjah in a match of 1994 Asia Cup.

Sorry, Miraz, this is a really interesting question and I could not resist myself answering it, even if that makes you unhappy :lol:

Albert Trott averaged 102.5 in three Test matches he played for Australia. But later he switched side to England and averaged 5.75 with bat in two Test matches he played for the team. So, his overall career average is 38.00. Anyrate, he is still the Australian batsman with the highest batting average.

This is what cricinfo has written in Raza's profile-

doubts about his birthdate and medical tests later resulted in the PCB withdrawing the record claim - his actual age was uncertain, but was around 15 at the time of debut
So, officially, Hasan Raza holds no record.

I don't think any native East Bengali/East Pakistani/Bangladeshi ever played Test cricket for any other country.

This is what MCC says (http://www.lords.org/laws-and-spirit/laws-of-cricket/laws/law-2-substitutes-and-runners-batsman-or-fielder-leaving-the-field-batsman-retiring-batsman-commencing-innings,28,AR.html)-

Batsman leaving the field or retiring
A batsman may retire at any time during his innings. The umpires, before allowing play to proceed, shall be informed of the reason for a batsman retiring.
(a) If a batsman retires because of illness, injury or any other unavoidable cause, he is entitled to resume his innings subject to (c) below. If for any reason he does not do so, his innings is to be recorded as -Retired 'not out'.
(b) If a batsman retires for any reason other than as in (a) above, he may only resume his innings with the consent of the opposing captain. If for any reason he does not resume his innings it is to be recorded as -Retired 'out'.
(c) If after retiring a batsman resumes his innings, it shall be only at the fall of a wicket or the retirement of another batsman.

So, all the batsmen who had to leave the field because of injury and did not come back to resume their innings are considered retired not out. Most of the times, they are marked in the scorecards as retired hurt, but the meaning is same.
The most recent such case is Justin Langer in South Africa. The only two batsmen who are considered out because they retired are Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardane in the Asian Test championship match against Bangladesh.

Sovik
June 1, 2006, 07:53 PM
There are many cases that batsman did not come back after retiring and they were declared retired hurt or retired out but in Gordon Greenidge's case he was retired not out. and the reason may have been, his daughter died while he was batting and he had to leave the field.

This is from cricinfo

1983
A tragic century in Antigua. Gordon Greenidge (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/db/PLAYERS/WI/G/GREENIDGE_CG_04001433/) and Des Haynes (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/db/PLAYERS/WI/H/HAYNES_DL_04001553/) had added 296 in the fifth Test against India (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1980S/1982-83/IND_IN_WI/IND_WI_T5_28APR-03MAY1983.html), and Greenidge was on 154 when he had to retire to visit his sick daughter in hospital. Sadly, she died two days later, and Greenidge was eventually adjudged to have retired not out, the only such scorecard entry in Test history.

and another interesting thing about this match is it went to 6th day. i am not sure but the scorecard reads it. match duration was april 28, 29, 30, may 1 and 3.

Test # 956 (953/48)
West Indies v India, 1982/83, 5th Test

There are many cases that batsman did not come back after retiring and they were declared retired hurt or retired out but in Gordon Greenidge's case he was retired not out. and the reason may have been, his daughter died while he was batting and he had to leave the field.

I think Greenidge's case was unique in a sense that he retired for a reason other than personal injury, but he was still given not out, considering his special situation.

However, all the batsmen that had to retire because of injury are also considered not out for statistical purpose, as you can see Langer had more one such instance.

and another interesting thing about this match is it went to 6th day. i am not sure but the scorecard reads it. match duration was april 28, 29, 30, may 1 and 3.

Test # 956 (953/48)
West Indies v India, 1982/83, 5th Test
Antigua Recreation Ground, St John's, Antigua
28,29,30 April, 1,3 May 1983 (5-day match)

5 day tests used to be six day long before 1990s. the fourth day is the rest day. I do not know which is the first 5 day test without rest day. But my question is in which test the second day was the rest day?
Hint 1: It is a very famous test involving one of the greatest all rounder of the 80s.
Hint 2: One of the greatest show of sportsmanship by one of the greatest indian batsman which changed the result of the game

This is what Wikipedia says about 'retired out' and 'retired - not out'

If a batsman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batsman) gets injured or ill while batting, he may retire and resume his batting at a later stage in the innings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innings) at the fall of a wicket (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wicket) or when another batsman retires hurt. If he takes the umpire's permission to leave, he is declared 'Retired – not out'.

In cricket (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cricket), a batsman retires out he retires without the umpire's permission, and does not have the permission of the opposing captain to resume his innings (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innings). This often happens from time to time in friendly practice games, for instance English county sides versus University Centres of Cricketing Excellence. Only two batsmen have retired out in test match (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test_cricket) cricket. Both instances were in the same match, where the Sri Lankan batsmen retired out to save the Bangladeshi opposition further embarrassment. Each of these two batsmen had already scored more runs than the entire Bangladeshi team in the previous innings, and it is arguable that they deliberately gave batting time to newer teammates

I think it will clarify.

Luke, UK (AB No. 60)
Have England ever fielded a side with players from 11 different counties?

Yes, but only twice. The first instance was in the Third Test against South Africa at Durban in January 1931 (Wyatt, Hammond, Leyland, Hendren, Turnbull, Chapman, White, Allom, Tate, Voce and Duckworth - Derbyshire, Essex, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Worcestershire not being represented).

The second was against West Indies at Trent Bridge in July 1950 (Simpson, Washbrook, Parkhouse, Dewes, Yardley, Insole, Evans, Shackleton, Jenkins, Bedser and Hollies - Derbyshire, Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Somerset and Sussex missing out).

That’s the right answer. But he did score another century on the first edition of the National Cricket League in 1999 when he was just 14 years and 17 days old. But that’s not considered a record as our National Cricket League didn’t have first class status till its second edition.

This is not funny at all. this guy was in pain.

but how about a batsman got hin on the chest first ball he faced in test cricket, taken to hospital and died.

The scorecard read 1st innings-- retired hurt, 2nd innings-- absent due to death

Hint>> he was from Pakistan
