Default Ask CricketGuru

I am starting a new thread. It's a fun thread. The rule is very simple.

1. Anyone can become a CricketGuru and ask a question which felow members will try to answer.
2. Once the question is correctly answered the CricketGuru will acknowledge that and any member can post a new question and take the role of CricketGuru.
3. Please do not post a new question before the current question is answered.
4. Question should be cricket related.
5. Member who will take the role as the cricket guru should acknowledge the correct answer when it is posted.

So, as the strater of the thread I take the opportunity to become the first CricketGuru.

My question is

1. Who holds the record for highest first class score for Bangladesh?

Thanks abdulw11 for your answer and it's a correct one. His score of 224 for Biman against Khulna is the highest one.

Well done !!

Now, the next question is

1. Who is the first player in the history of test cricket to achieve 100 test caps for his country?

Colin Cowdrey.

If my answer is correct, which i am pretty sure of (thanks to cricinfo), my question is, among BD bowlers, who had the best bowling analysis (in ODI of course) before achieving test status?

Exactly. Thats great.

Very true and he also scored century in that test to become first test batsman to score century in his 100th test.

So, it's the time to ask another question

I'll wait for felow members to post a question.

Spot on!! Tendulkar_Mcgrath. Saiful took 4/36 against Srilanka at Sharjah in a match of 1994 Asia Cup.

Congrats!!

Now I am posting another question.

1. Who is the most unfortunate player in the test history who scored a century in his first innings and a fifty in the second innings (of his debut test) and never played any test after that???

Abdulw11 is correct. Congrates! Next question please...


(2nd is Ramdin - WI, 3rd is Symond - Aus. The order would change once JO gets a chance to play the 20/20 for BD. I have full faith on the selectors)
