View Full Version : Hannan = Gavaskar

His first ball duck to PT Collins is memorable for many reasons. Many thanks to Aslam who posted this onc rsc.

1. There are only 20 batsmen who were out first ball of a test match.
2. Gavaskar is the only one along with Hannan to have done this more than once. In fact, Gavaskar did this 3 times.
3. Hannan has the dubious honor being done to by the same bowler.

If all the catches that was offered were taken the west indies might have been three down and in deep trouble. Notice the west indies batsmen are hitting the ball in the air alot.
