Welcome Bujhee kom Bhaiyya.

Thanks for your participation

Your Answer is wrong.

The fast bowlers you have mentioned are from the 70's.

Good try. You still have time 6 days.

Thanks.

Profile


Jamie Siddons represented Australia only once at international level - he made 32 in a one-day match at Lahore in 1988 - but his involvement with the national team increased substantially since his retirement. Siddons was an assistant coach of the Australian team after being appointed as a senior coach at the Centre of Excellence before the 2005 Ashes. Prior to his promotions, Siddons spent four years as the South Australia assistant under the tutelage of Wayne Phillips and Greg Chappell. The swift rise through the management ranks was set up by a career as one of the greatest domestic players never to win a Test cap.

Siddons' first-class statistics were outstanding and when he retired in 1999-2000 he had amassed 10,643 Sheffield Shield/Pura Cup runs, which was then a record. The mantle has since been passed to his former team-mate Darren Lehmann, but Siddons retains third position on the list behind Jamie Cox. He was desperately unlucky not to win a Test call and the closest he came was on the 1988 tour to Pakistan when he suffered a severe stomach bug - he took more than a year to recover. A fractured cheekbone caused by a Merv Hughes bouncer in 1991-92 also severely dented his confidence. "It ruined my chances of playing for Australia," Siddons said in Merv: The Full Story, "and it was my worst moment in sport."

Beginning his career in Victoria, Siddons made his debut in 1984-85 against West Indies, who were then at the peak of their powers, and he scored 35 before falling to a young Courtney Walsh. He was instrumental in securing the Sheffield Shield title in 1990-91, smashing an unbeaten 124 in the final against New South Wales at the MCG, and the following season relocated to South Australia. Showing he had recovered from the Hughes injury, he was the Sheffield Shield Player of the Year in 1992-93 after plundering 1190 runs at 66.11, including four centuries. The move also allowed Siddons to embrace a leadership role and he captained them to a Shield win in 1995-96. He led South Australia in 73 first-class matches, winning 21 times and drawing 23 games.

An exciting player, Siddons possessed an array of aggressive strokes that allowed him to dominate bowling attacks. His exuberance sometimes brought about his downfall, but he was a well-rounded batsman who was at ease to pace and spin. He scored three double-centuries during his stint with Victoria, including a career-high 245 for Victoria against New South Wales in 1990-91, and the closest he got to a double at South Australia was 197 against New South Wales in Sydney in 1992-93. An outstanding fielder at slip and on the offside, Siddons still has the record for the most catches in domestic first-class history with 189, the same number as John Inverarity. He was superb in the covers, but injury meant he spent most of his latter years in the cordon, and Lehmann reckoned he saw him drop only one catch. Siddons was also a talented Australian rules footballer who played two VFL games for Sydney in 1984, shortly before his first-class cricket career began.

Just like his switch to South Australia in the early 1990s, Siddons' move into the coaching ranks has been smooth. He enjoyed a hands-on role with the Centre of Excellence and Australian international teams, which was something that eluded him during his playing days. And then in October 2007 he accepted an offer to coach Bangladesh after initially turning down the job because his terms and conditions did not match those of the Bangladesh board.

is this a guessing game? your questions warrant subjective response. Your condition is that the batsman is considered one of the greatest AND that he has an innings that also is considered one of best. Can you see how that potentially give you multiple answers? Can you be great without having some best knocks?

Question 3

This knock from one of the greatest cricketer of all time is considered by Don Bradman as the best ever he has seen in his life time
Stan McCabe 232 at Nottingham, 1938. An alternate answer is Garry Sobers' 254 at Melbourne 1971-72 which Bradman called "probably the greatest innings ever played in Australia".

Oh I missed the platinum, khelbo na.

INT # 1- Eng-Aus
INT # 2 - Grifith - Hall
INT # 3 - SRT
INT # 4 - Lara

Sorry I am too busy to search for the details, in these days. New job and new house etc

Brain gives; Memory error !! Msg You have loads of initiative, keep it up. I would request you to consider the diversity of BC members, and bring it up part by part to keep it short, interesting and reduce your own efforts as well.

Thanks a lot and all praises for Allah.

Have fun and keep your positivity alive.

So that means we can open a thread in BC and claim that only the mentioned users participate in this?

Wow...didn't know that we can claim rights for a thread!

Question 2
Name the bowling pair who were considered the most feared fast bowers in the 50 ‘s and 60.


In the 60's , it is the West Indian pair of Wesley Hall and Charlie Griffith. I am not sure but I think in the 50's, it was the duo of Ramadin and Valentine.

Question 5
He is the youngest cricketer to have made his debut in test cricket. What is his name and which country does he belong? . How old was he when he made his test debut ?

[b]Musfiqur Rahim. He belongs to Bangladesh and was 16 yrs old, debut at Lords[/B
Question 3
This country played their first ever test match in 1981. Who were the opponents and what was the result of test match ?
I am a bit stumped here. Sri lanka was awarded Test status in 1981, but did not play their first test match until 1982 whe they played England which England won.
