    Trying to find a record

    I am the book keeper of the ICC 2005 Record Book and I am struggling to find 1 record. The highest score on debut in a one day domestic match. I have tried cricket archive, cricinfo, howstat, searching yahoo etc. but have not found it. Anyone able to help?

    Highest score on debut, One Day Domestic cricket. - ?
    It's opening time down on fascination street. So let's cut the conversation and get out for a bit. - Fascination Street from The Cure's Disintegration

    If you had the time you could work it out

    1) Compare the scores with the player's List A span in order to weed out ones that were nowhere near their debut

    2) Compile a short-list of guys who top-scored in their first year in list A cricket

    3) Then work through the short-list via cricket archive to see if the score was on their debut.

    But i haven't got the time...

    It is probably Amol Muzumdar of Mumbai,India who scored 260 on his first-class debut for Mumbai But then I have a feeling that in over 150 years of first-class cricket, someone must have surely scored more than 260 on his first-class debut. Try searching first-class records for each country and you might get it.

    He wants one-day stats, not FC

    Afridi scored 102 in his first dig in ODIs. It wasn't his first match though. Yuvraj scored 84.

    Andy Flower 115* for Zimbabwe on debut in the 1992 world cup. Must have been his 1st List A match as Zimbabwe werent a test-playing nation then and their domestic cricket did not have first-class status then.

    Yes, I know Desmond Haynes has is it ODIs but that wasn't his first score in any one day cricket. Geez, this is a tough one. I have a list of the top scores ever in List A but it is near impossible to find the one record. I searched the 70s scorecards on cricinfo with the top scores but they don't mention who debuted in the match.

    EDIT: However, I used CricketArchive and found that Paul Carlstein, who made 167*, played his first match against NE Transvaal and he scored 167* in that match. Thus, I think I have found the record, in the 70s. I just hope it is still standing.

    Okay, now Alan Barrow scored 202* in a match with South Africa African XI in 1975/76 and apparently this was his first match.

    this is his list of List A matches.

    Seven

    And Darko's right - have tracked down the only higher scores, and they weren't debuts.
