    weirdest scorecards

    so i have stumbled across this game and it's absolutely absurd

    1st Test: Sri Lanka v Pakistan at Galle, Jul 4-7, 2009 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    there is so much absurdity in this scorecard i don't know where to begin

    what are the strangest looking scorecards you've seen?

    the reason i say scorecard is bc u can have perfectly crazy matches with normal looking scorecards, say pakistan and their collapse against the kiwis a couple of months ago

    I'm not sure what I'm missing here........what's especially absurd about that scorecard?

    I did notice this though which is kinda cool......

    Test debuts - Abdur Rauf, Mohammad Amir and Saeed Ajmal (Pakistan); AD Mathews (Sri Lanka)
    Dunno anything about Rauf, but the other three are pretty notable debutants.

    I am assuming it is Younis Khan taking the wickets but come on, even Alastair Cook has taken wickets...

    On this point, openers that use a night watchman should be immidiately dropped.

    cook took a single wicket and it was ishant sharma

    younis took a for fer for the game, including dilshan as keeper (which he did on occasion) and rangana as an opening night watchman the next morning, and took them bowling second change

    pakistan managed to completely and totally pakistan a fairly well restricted game, first levelling the sri lanka total with five wickets left then only leading by just fifty

    they proceeded to bowl sri lanka out for a small total, before lollapsing in amazing fashion to his roundness with the highest score in the inns being 28: and then the sundries second

    misbah's run out too is the stuff of T20

    and then you've got other novelties like angelo batting at seven and eight and sri lanka actually batting deep, yousuf's runout a bit of a joke too

    Rauf dropped Watson on 99 to give him his first test 100 after falling in the 90s three times earlier in the summer

    Rauf never played again

    Glenn Maxwell opening the bowling and the batting in a test match:

    4th Test: India v Australia at Delhi, Mar 22-24, 2013 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    The scorecard as a whole isn't weird but Kyle Mills coming to bat at 3 (not as a nightwatchman) to face Ntini/Steyn/Pollock is certainly something that catches the eye

    1st Test: South Africa v New Zealand at Centurion, Apr 15-19, 2006 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    A West Indies team with Walcott, Lloys and Basil Butcher being bundled out for 25 allout by a bunch of no-name Irishmen

    Ireland v West Indians at Sion Mills, Jul 2, 1969 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    And, obviously:
