This year it has happened for the first time that bowlers from a nation have managed toscalp hat tricks in all format of the game.

Mohhamad Shami did it in One-Dayers against Ban, Bumrah in Tests against WI and Chahar again against Ban in T20.

Yogesh, yeah, it was a nice game. What I really love to do about cricket is to watch Abu Dhabi T10 Live Streaming channel on the web. I can highly recommend one resource I’ve found couple of days ago. Click here to find it and make sure that you will find everything about last cricket championships and matches.

Amazing facts! But How and When did Tendulkar play for Pakistan?


#16

Thank you @Aman for your reply. This is to share the fact of how Sachin Tendulkar played for Pakistan which is interesting to know for all.

Sachin Tendulkar was just a 13-year-old boy when he made his international debut as a fielder. This happened during a practice match between India and Pakistan at the Brabourne Stadium in 1987 where Tendulkar came on the field as a substitute fielder for Pakistan.

Today

Smith Surpassed Bradman’s Test Runs

Warner Surpassed Bradman’s Test High Score

& Today Is Bradman’s Debut Date! :thinking:


#18

Lara’s record could have broken if not for the hurried declaration


#19

What we all can is speculate now!

But chances of Warner breaking Lara’a records are very slim though. Ten times batsmen scored more runs than 335 i.e. Warner’s today score, But only once a batsman could score 400. So it’s a 10 in 1 chance historically.


#20

Here is what Warner can look up to…to be part of the Elite Club!
