    New cricket game - "Who am I"

    I have seen a "Who am I" type of a round in some game shows and quizzes on television where some facts about a person are told and the person is to be guessed. I decided to apply this in a cricket format where some facts about a player will be given and the others will have to guess the player. Only 1 guess per member will be allowed for each fact given.

    After the a fact is provided, the next fact must be given within 24 hours of providing the previous fact about the player by the same person asking the question and atleast 1 guess should have been made between 2 facts provided.

    The member who is able to guess the player correctly will ask the next question. Anybody who wants to have more information about this game can ask me in this thread.

    Let me start off this game with a slightly easy question -

    Fact 1. I made my international debut in 1996 scoring a half-century in my 1st international match.

    Did you get out in the 90s?

    If you are thinking of Dravid, he had played his first "international" when he played an ODI in Srilanka (two months before his test debut) and scored just 3 runs.

    I'm thinking of Ponting. (96 in first Test)

    What if the answer you'd in mind is given after the first fact? But there are many other players who comply with the same fact? Like here... If Ponting's whom you had in mind, Law still complies with the same fact.

    The answer can be given directly after the 1st fact is provided and the person who gives the answer is the winner. The winner, will then ask the next question.

    It can be possible that many players might fit in the 1st fact, but then once more facts are provided, the "extra" players who fit in that fact, might not fit in the next fact. The correct answer will be the player who fits in all the facts.

    Now, time for the next fact to be provided -

    Fact 1. I made my international debut in 1996 scoring a half-century in my 1st international match.
    Fact 2. I did not get out in the 90s in that match.

    Another thing, The member asking the question, can provide atmost 10 facts in which the player is to be guessed. Incase everyone fails to guess the player, then the member who asked the question will have to provide the correct answer to the last question and he stands out to be the winner since nobody could answer the question correctly.

    The same member who asked the previous question, stands a chance of asking the next question.

    If anybody thinks 10 facts is too less, it can be increased. But usually in those game shows from where I stole this idea, the correct answer usually comes out after 5-6 facts, so 10 facts is just right.

    It requires a lot of honesty from the player putting the fact forward.

    Take in this case:

    Ponting was what you had in mind. Someone answers it. You say no, because there are many more players fitting the fact.

    There is no way Ponting can fit in that fact, because he made his intl debut in 1995 and not in 1996
