Leave a comment »

Q: And how many specialist batsmen? (With the same qualification)

A :Just four: England's Graham Gooch, India's GS Ramchand and Sri Lanka's Marvan Atappattu (who kept-up the remarkable habit of duck-making throughout his entire career) and Chamara Silva (who more than made-up for it in his sophomore game).
Q: What is the breakdown of Test debuts by country:

A: In England, 655 players have so far made their Test debuts; 467 in Australia; 332 in South Africa; 260 in India; 240 in West Indies; 210 in New Zealand; 175 in Pakistan; 109 in Sri Lanka; 74 in Zimbabwe; 43 in Bangladesh; and a couple in the UAE.
Q: What is the most number of catches taken on Test debut for a non-wicketkeeper?

A: The remarkable (and fairly remarkably named) Indian Yajurvindra Singh took 7 catches on his Test debut in 1976/77, to equal Greg Chappell's record set in 1974/75.
