...btw I mean who scored more Test 6s comparing only between Bashar and Mortaza.

A BD batsman captained the team in some ODIs in 2004 when only aged 20...
Rajin captained at Scotland I missed that one.

Bashar should be the winner against Mortaza.


On your first question it is a test innings not test match correct?

Xavier
February 8, 2007, 02:28 PM
Rubu got 13 right, similar to other users... you all get right 3-8-15-21... you all make wrong answer on 17: he was born in october '85 and had debut in november 2000... sorry for making confusion...

yes, the first one is about a Test innings.

btw I missed n.6 when making copy-paste:
6. How many BD totals appear in the list of 10 lowest team totals in a Test innings?

Sorry mates... I have to apologise again: the answer to n.5 is two different players, one for Test and one for ODI (my book is not updated!)

Rubu
February 8, 2007, 02:35 PM
May I know which 7 I missed? you can u2u me if you want to keep the correct answers a secret for now.

Nafis Iqbal (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/bangladesh/content/player/56064.html)

Right! And the correct answer to n.4 is Mortaza who hit 7 6s in Test cricket while Bashar only hit 2 (and 374 4s!).

Still no-one gave correct answer to n.9 and n.10... and answers to n.7 and n.13 are uncorrect and/or uncomplete... a tip: SN is still at 402 runs scored in Test cricket, as he only played 6 Tests!

bye mates, tomorrow I'll post all the right answers!:)

I didn't consider N.Hossain, he has 88.8 but only scored 8 runs in 2 innings...

Do you mean Golam Farouq? He's not.

Xavier
February 9, 2007, 03:22 PM
Here are all the correct answers:

1. Enamul 7-95 against Zimbabwe january 2005, Test2 (the drawn one).
2. Aftab 5-31 (NZ november 2004) - Razzak 5-33 (5 december 2006)
3. Bashar
4. Mortaza scored 7 Test 6s, Bashar only scored 2 (though making 374 4s!)
5. Rafique has 33 Test 6s, Aftab has 37 ODI 6s!
6. 0. 10th lowest total is 43 by SA (19th century!). BD lowest total is 86, the best of all test teams.
7. Bashar 2838, Omar 1525, Ashraful 1511 and Mashud 1361... Rafique is at 982, Saleh at 930, SN has scored 402 in 6 Tests.
8. Shariar Nafees, he made his maiden first-class century against the strongest opponent!
9. Rafique 65.55, due to his attitude at scoring sixes!
10. Saqibul Hasan 3.39, updated to today match.
11. Ashraful played 33, Rafique 26.
12. Mashrafee Mortaza today has reached 101.86!
13. 1-Saleh 29.06, 2-Ashraful 24.37, 3-Nafees Iqbal 23.54, 4-Aftab 20.78.
14. SN and Bashar 187 against Australia (1st test).
15. Omar
16. Mushfiqur Rahim was 16 years 261 days old when scored a century against Northamptonshire in 2005!
17. Nafees Iqbal in november 2000.
18. Rajin Saleh was aged 20 when being captain of Bangladesh at Champions Trophy 2004.
19. Yes, they both did it once.
20. It's Manjural Islam Rana! It's quite surprising as he's mainly considered a ODI player!
21. obviously Rafique...

All of you gave most of correct ansers, congrats!
(...but nobody answered correctly to n.10)

@ Rubu: check post #18 ;)

@ Mridul: you are right, I should have mentioned that, it just looked quite unsignificant to me while I was impressed by Rafique strike rate.

About Farooque Chowdhury... I finally found this page on him:
http://stats.rleague.com/odi/players/bowling/0094.html
looks like he had an overall 2.41 economy rate in the two ODIs he played, I don't know why he wasn't mentioned in cricinfo all-time bowling stats. I'm checking further. But it looks like you are right, if those ODIs are considered as offical ones.
