If you are Shakib, and batting - you must score a ton and then a double
If you are Shakib, and bowling - you must get a fifer, then another
But, if you are Mofis, and batting - twenty runs is enough to get the call for national duty in the next twenty tests and then twenty more...
And, if you are Abul, and bowling - your average could be even over hundreds, no worries, you would always be in selectors' dream!
