    5th Match: Bangladesh v Pakistan at Dambulla, Jun 21, 2010 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    I think it might be this match, and the player is Shahid Afridi. Afridi started his innings in the 28th over.

    Not a Test, but IAR Peebles Absent Bathing 0 was always a personal favourite.

    I was thinking of this one where Razzaq started in the 30th and tonned up - seems there's probably none better
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Surely any T20 ton is better than that for the question you asked? When Razzaq began his innings there were 124 legal deliveries left potentially.

    Yeah, I mean that was the one I was thinking of when I asked the question.

    In T20Is it's easy, there are only 2 tons scored by non-openers, one by McCullum and one by Raina. Raina's started in the first over and McCullum's in the 4th.

    In terms of specialist batsmen, Chetan Chauhan generally opened the batting in his 68 test innings, but never made a ton.

    Other specialist batsmen to have never made a ton include:

    Mike Brearley*- 66 inns.

    Bruce Laird- 40 inns.


    *Although it could be argued that Brearley was a specialist captain rather than a specialist bowler....

    You know it makes sense.

    Yeh, did consider him. Thought he was better described as an all rounder than a specialist batsman though.

    Yeah, I would agree with that

    Alick Bannerman was another, who perhaps in years played rather than innings would be up there

    That India attack looks so, so hilariously bad on paper, and it lived up to it.

    In a match - how much of a ball needs to be hitting in line for an lbw - the whole thing, half the ball, or just a piece of the ball.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    The ball has to "pitch in line between wicket and wicket or on the off side of the striker’s wicket". So if I understand your question, we're really only talking about being in line with leg stump here, as the law states that it needs to pitch in line between wicket and wicket, or on the off side of the striker's wicket. So, for the ball to "pitch" in line, at least half of it needs to be "in line" (between leg stump and leg stump).


    However, if you've ever played lower grade or social, self umpired cricket, you know the whole LBW law is a pile of ****. Everything is either "going down leg", "pitched outside leg", or "too high", or the batsman was "too far forward"!

    I'm talking about hitting in line - not pitching in line.

    So the batsman has played a forward defensive - the ball pitched outside off stump and has seamed back in and it is a marginal call whether it has struck him outside the line or not.
