Bowler lost in match, Pakistan-West Indies competing to throw no ball, then became world record

During the recent Chennai Test between India and England, there was a lot of news on Indian bowlers giving extra runs. In the first Test, India gave England 45 runs in extra innings in the first innings. It consisted of 20 no balls. But there is also a team that gave 68 runs in extra innings in an innings. Of these, 28 was the only ball. Then there was also the contribution of poor wicketkeeping, which led to 40 runs via bye. The incident took place 44 years ago in the Bridgetown Test between West Indies and Pakistan. In this, the Windies bowlers gave 68 runs in Pakistan's second innings via extras.

It was run by bowlers from Andy Roberts, Colin Croft, Joel Garner, Maurice Foster and Viv Richards. Derrick Murray was the wicketkeeper at that time. 68 extras included 29 byes, 11 leg byes and 28 no balls. In this match, bowlers bowled a total of 103 no balls. The funny thing is that in this test, many extra runs were given by both the teams. At that time it was a world record for giving extra runs. However, the record for giving the most extra runs in a Test innings is in India's name. He gave 76 extras in the 2007 Bangalore Test against Pakistan.

44 no balls in first two innings

Pakistan captain Mushtaq Mohammad won the toss and chose batting. Colin Croft and Joel Garner debuted for the West Indies in the match. Pakistan scored 435 runs with Wasim Raja's century (117) and Majid Khan's half-century. Joel Garner took the most four wickets. Apart from him, Colin Croft got three wickets. The Windies bowlers gave 35 extra runs. 23 of these were no balls. In response, the West Indies also scored 421 runs in the first innings. Captain Clive Lloyd scored 157 runs for him. Derrick Murray scored 52 and Gordon Greenidge scored 47 runs. Imran Khan and Sarfaraz Nawaz took three wickets each for Pakistan. In this innings, 29 runs went to extras from Pak team. 21 of these were no balls.

Two wasim saved pakistan

Pakistan's innings in the second innings was reduced to 291 runs. Only Wasim Raja and Wasim Bari could play big innings. Raja scored 71 runs and Bari, who landed at number 11, scored an unbeaten 60 runs. In the same innings, West Indies bowlers gave 68 extras. Had this run been short, Pakistan's condition would have been bad. For the West Indies, Colin Croft took four wickets, Andy Roberts took three wickets. West Indies got a target of 306 runs to win.

Pakistan stayed away from victory

Chasing the target, the condition of the host team deteriorated. She survived by losing with great difficulty. Despite the fifties of Vivian Richards (92) and opener Roy Fredericks (52), the team lost nine wickets for 237 runs. But then Andy Roberts (9) and Coleen Croft (5) took the lead for the last wicket and saved the team from defeat. Together, the two did not allow Pakistan's intentions to succeed. Roberts batting for 95 minutes and took the team to the draw. In this innings also 41 runs came from extras. 31 of these were no balls. Thus ended an exciting match.

Think if the bowlers had given extra runs less then the result of the match would have definitely come.


James Anderson achieved another feat at the age of 38, equals McGrath-Akram in Ahmedabad

James Anderson achieved another feat at the age of 38, equals McGrath-Akram in Ahmedabad

England's team is struggling in the Test series against India. The English team captained by Joe Root is 2–1 behind in the series and most of the players are struggling a lot in private. Amidst all this, the team's most experienced players and the most successful fast bowler in Test cricket history, James Anderson, are achieving new positions. At the age of 38, Anderson remains the world's leading fast bowler and once again showed his ability in the first innings of the fourth Test. With this, Anderson achieved a feat that had only come in the form of great bowlers such as Glenn McGrath and Wasim Akram.

Anderson had already shocked India in the first over on the first day of the last Test in Ahmedabad. This right-handed veteran fast bowler sent India's young opener Shubman Gill to the pavilion without opening an account on only the third ball. After such a start, on the second day, Anderson kept troubling the Indian team and once again got its reward. A special achievement that came together.

900 wickets completed in international cricket

India lost the wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in the first session of the second day. Rohit Sharma was on the other side, but Andersaran and Ben Stokes were not giving him a chance. However, Ajinkya Rahane played some excellent counter-attack shots and tried to put the pressure back on England. Before Rahane could bring India to a safe position, in the last over before lunch, Anderson had Rahane caught out at slip.

With Rahane taking the wicket, Anderson achieved a special place in international cricket. This was Anderson's 900th wicket in international cricket. He is only the third fast bowler to do so after McGrath and Akram.

Muralitharan at the forefront

Glenn McGrath has 949 wickets in 376 matches, while Akram has taken 916 wickets in 460 matches. At the same time, Anderson completed 900 wickets in his 373rd match. The record of the highest 1347 wickets is in the name of Sri Lankan great spinner Muthayar Muralitharan. After them Shane Warne (1001) and Anil Kumble (956) are part of this list.
