    Players who opened the batting and bowling in the same match

    I recall Irfan Pathan doing this vs. Australia in Adelaide 2008 - 4th Test: Australia v India at Adelaide, Jan 24-28, 2008 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Any other examples that spring to mind? Any format will do.

    Watson did it in the 2013 Ashes IIRC. Prabhakar did it a bunch of times. Hafeez does it almost every match he plays.

    But the best one might be this:

    2nd Test: Pakistan v India at Lahore, Oct 27-Nov 1, 1978 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Yes, that's right. Sunil Gavaskar opening the batting and the bowling. Can't make this **** up.

    Also, as if we didn't have enough reasons to love him, Dhammika Prasad opened the batting and bowling once vs England.
