Good morning. I hope today's theme is not Age. Here are some age related numbers. Do you see the numbers of Pakistani players at the top. Do you see Yuvraj Singh, Powell and Gayle. Why? :-/

Interesting. Wonder if this is a mistake or if there is a methodology I missed. Mohd sharif is shown at no.2 of the chart, at age 15 he scored 24, but where is Ashraful?

Ashraful made the century when he was 17 years old and the score was 114, less than what tendulkar and masakadza did (118). He was younger than both of them, but was still 17.

This is HS score made _at_ each age.

Ashraful has two conflicting DOBs. The one in Cricinfo, Cricketarchive and our database is Sep 09, 1984. The one followed by Howstat and some others is July 7, 1984 (http://www.howstat.com.au/cricket/Statistics/Players/PlayerOverview.asp?PlayerID=2964)

Ashraful scored his hundred over Sep 7-8, 2001, when he was in his 17th year. Because of that a list in Cricketarchive has his 114 as the youngest by a 17 year old.

However, since howstat has a different DOB, Ash falls in the '18th year' group. There his 114 falls behind the 119s of SRT and Masaadza.
