How many Bangladeshi players got dismissed in their personal score of nineties in a test innings? I can remember two so far. Ashraful and Bashar. May be one or two more? Anyone know this?
Thanks.

not many bangladeshi batsmen have reached the nineties in tests, let alone odi's. however, there was an instance when shahriar hossain got out on 95 against kenya in dhaka, narrowly missing out on becoming the first bd batter to score a ton in odi's. it was in the same merryl cup clash that mehrab hossain claimed it, just a couple of matches later.

Rajin's 89 in the first test against Zimbabwe should get a mention.

Some interesting stats if you look at the 50+ scores for BD batsmen.

There are actually 50 such instances.

Top 3:

Habibul Bashar: 10 (20%)
Mohammad Ashraful: 8
Javed Omar: 6

I am sure Aminul Islam would have been in this list had he not 'retired' when he did.

Most of our 50+ scores occurred against ZIM (not surprising)

ZIM: 17
PAK: 7
WI: 6
SAF: 5
IND:5
NZ:4
SL: 3
Eng:2
Aus:1

Frequency of occurrences by season:

2004/2005: 10
2004: 5
2003/2004: 4
2003: 11
2002/2003: 3
2002:2
2001/2002: 6
2000/2001: 6

The fiirst year after your entry into Test cricket, we had good scores and then the stlwarts retired and we had a dip. But the last couple of years we have increased the number of 50+ scores - testament to coaching and a team learning and gelling.

Similarly analyzing 50+ scores in ODIs.

Again 50 such instances!

Top few:

Habibul Bashar: 6
Javed Omar: 5
Rajin Saleh: 5
Alok Kapali: 4
Akram Khan: 4
Mehrab Hossain: 3
Atahar Ali: 3
Aminul Islam: 3

Interesting for people: JO and HB's placement on both lists.

My stats are suspect because I chose the top 50 50+ scores and not all 50+ scores. Of course 50 = 50 for ODIs and TESTs :)

On the other hand, if I qualify all of the above by saying that I chose only the top 50 scores - I am golden :)

Thank you Dr.Zunaid. I got more answers than I originally bargained for. I will take it nevertheless.

Surely Bashar would have passed 50 more than 10 times in tests

BD batsmen scored a total of 10 Test centuries and got out in the 90s three time. So the conversion of 90s into 100s is 10 out of 13. Not bad at all.

Lets talk about how many times Bangladeshi batsmen got nervous on the very first ball and got out without even scorning any run? Nervous nineties never look as bad as watching our top brand batsmen getting DUCK or 1/2/3/4/5 runs.

Then start another thread about getting out at,1,2,3....The topic here is "Nervous Nineties".

Of course 50 = 50 for ODIs and TESTs
What is that supposed to mean?
