Ballad of a cricket monomaniac

I am here to make a Faustian bargain.

Suppose, just suppose, right after hearing, or, reading these words, a thought activated smart bomb were set off to detonate in the northern valley of the province of L'Isle sur la Sorgue. But, there is respite. Within thirteen seconds, a phone will ring or a knock will be there on the door, with a messenger asking you for the code. And that is where you, come in. Will you let the blood of the massacre of three dozen men be in your hands, or will you let yourself redeem your chance for mistakenly reading the opening lines? And thirteen seconds is roughly the time it will take you to finish reading this.

Yes, I am fully aware in this digital age every tidbits of cricket trivia is at the fingertips. Go ahead! I dare you to indulge in decoding this two digit number the base 36 of itself repeats.

Well, well, well. All my life I have single-handedly devoted time chasing the tales around this number. I have been feverishly out of my mind seeing it pop up in various places. Imagine my delight when I saw this had tremendous significance in cricket literature after it fancied the same one as Don as this was a last. Few will miss the various morphs in which it appeared: batsmen scoring it that included fifty-percent or more of the innings total by Trumper, Sutcliffe and Weir. Or to talk of Doug Walters span and runs conceded by Kumble in his epic.

Dad Weir who was the oldest surviving Test cricketer a while ago scored it once.

It is also a score Lord Tennyson who was the grandson of the poet. You might recall that under his leadership the era saw what can only be deemed as the “Hampshire turnaround“. After being dismissed for only 15, and being put to follow on, they amassed 521 runs to Warwickshire’s reply and bowled them out.

The first of this was by Billy Barnes followed up by Ulyett, Blackham and Darling. Of these Jack Blackham’s one made in his final test is still the record for the highest partnership for Australia. It helped England win by 10 runs even after being forced to follow on.

These two digits on debut after which a warship is named appeared as a debut score for Gunn. And of course, in 1931 he and his son, GV Gunn, each scored a century in the same innings against Warwickshire. The nocturnal of this was by Salman Butt. Strauss recorded it retired hurt. Fastest one was by O’Donnell. Raman Lamba’s helped India beat Australia and earn him Man of the Match.

Redpath described as "a lanky, long-necked figure without a spare ounce of flesh" scored it with Walters against South Africa - the same where Graeme Pollock had two hundred more of it. Redpath you'd fondly recall resumed a career in antique-dealing post-retirement did not hit his first six in career until his 66th Test.

Tick tock! Time's up.

What is the code?

Can a batsman's score be predicted in the sport of cricket?

সেন্ট কিটসে এক দিনের পর্যটক

Quote:
হ্যাঁ, এক তামিম ইকবালই শুধু সঙ্গী হননি বাংলাদেশ দলের সমুদ্রবিহারে। গ্রেনাডায় স্নরকেলিং করতে সমুদ্রে গিয়ে বাজে অভিজ্ঞতা হয়েছে। ‘সি সিকনেসে’ এতটাই আক্রান্ত হয়েছিলেন যে জাহাজে শুয়েই পড়েছিলেন। প্রচণ্ড মাথা ঘোরানো, বমির ভাব—সমুদ্রকে ভয় পেতে যত রকমের অভিজ্ঞতা দরকার, সবই হয়েছিল ওই এক বিহারে। এবার তাই আর ভুল করেননি তামিম। পরশু সকাল থেকে দুপুর পর্যন্ত দলের কোচ-খেলোয়াড় সবাই ক্যারিবিয়ান সমুদ্রে এক দিনের পর্যটক হয়ে গেলেও তামিম রয়ে গেলেন ম্যারিয়ট রিসোর্টেই।
Quote:
তবে নাম প্রকাশ না করার শর্তে দু-একজন তাঁদের অভিজ্ঞতা শোনালেন। দলের তরুণ এক ক্রিকেটার যেমন খুব সহজ-স্বাভাবিকভাবে বলছিলেন, ‘আমার তো খুবই ভালো লেগেছে। সমুদ্র দেখলাম, স্যান্ডউইচ আর চিকেন দিয়ে লাঞ্চ করলাম, তারপর ফিরে এলাম।’ আরেক ক্রিকেটারের কথা, ‘সফরের মধ্যে সবাই মিলে এক-আধটু এ রকম ঘোরাঘুরি করলে সব ধরনের চাপই অনেক কমে যায়। সবাই একসঙ্গে আড্ডা দেওয়া, খেলা ছাড়া অন্য কিছু নিয়ে একটা দিন কাটানো—এসব তো সচরাচর হয়ে ওঠে না আমাদের।’ আরেকজন বলছিলেন, ‘আমাদের জীবনের বেশির ভাগ সময়ই চলে যায় ক্রিকেটের পেছনে। নিজের অজান্তেই হয়তো আমরা বিরক্ত হয়ে উঠি ক্রিকেট-ব্যস্ত জীবনের ওপর। সেটা থেকে মুক্তির জন্যও এ রকম ঘুরতে যাওয়া ভালো। আর নতুন অভিজ্ঞতা তো হয়ই।’
ke bolse ei kotha ta? kan dhor utbosh korano dorkar, deshi kutta diya kamrano dorkar. shara jibon chole gelo cricketer er pichone kintu am chala kichui to korte parla nah. magna magna sandwich ar chicken khaite shobari bhalo lage.
