I think you have not made any guess!! even you have done that, you are spot on!!

It was Colin Cowdrey and he scored 307 on his birthday.

My next question seems to be pretty simple

1. Till date who has the highest Test cricket batting average while playing for Australia?

Nothing seriously. Colin Cowdrey is the only player who was born in Bangalore, India and captained another country (England) 27 times. So' its easy to guess from my hint.

Sorry!! if I hurt you by any means.

Sorry, Miraz, this is a really interesting question and I could not resist myself answering it, even if that makes you unhappy

Albert Trott averaged 102.5 in three Test matches he played for Australia. But later he switched side to England and averaged 5.75 with bat in two Test matches he played for the team. So, his overall career average is 38.00. Anyrate, he is still the Australian batsman with the highest batting average.

Bulls eye!!

Exactly Trott is the surprise player to have the highest test average while playing for Australia.

That's a great answer.

Waiting for another question...from someone else..

Neaz Ahmed, he played in the famous test in which D'Oliveira score 144. A famous match for many reasons

Against England in Dhaka.

Cricman is right, Cooper was born in East India Company era Dhaka and later represented Australia in the first ever Test match that was played in between Australia and England.

I got the question a bit wrong. I am afraid I answered it wrong too.

Cricman you are right. Bransby Cooper was born in March 15 1844 in Dhaka (Dacca at that time ) and played only one test for Australia & scored 15 and 3.

In fact Neaz Ahmed is the first East Pakistani (now Bangladesh) to play a test match.

Good question watcher. Now it's the time to post another question..

This is what cricinfo has written in Raza's profile-

Quote:
doubts about his birthdate and medical tests later resulted in the PCB withdrawing the record claim - his actual age was uncertain, but was around 15 at the time of debut
So, officially, Hasan Raza holds no record.

Did any Bangladeshi (East Bengal) cricketer play test cricket for India before the 1947 partition? If so, who was the first?

I think I got the answer for this one too- the name of the player is "Nobody".

I don't think any native East Bengali/East Pakistani/Bangladeshi ever played Test cricket for any other country.

Niaz Ahmed, who is the only Test cricketer from East Pakistan, was actually born in UP, India. In common Bangladeshi terms, he would be referred as a "Bihari".

Well, I am taking for granted that Miraz and Al Furqaan are satisfied with answers to their questions. So, here is my next question-

Which Bangladeshi cricketer had scored a double century and then a century in a single FC match?
