• When R
    Dravid and SR Tendulakar added 22 runs in the course of their partnership
    for the third wicket in the
    first test at Delhi,
    they became the first Indian pair to add 3000 runs in the tests played at home.
    At the end of the third day of the test their aggregate partnership runs stood
    at 3035.   

     

     

    R Dravid-SR
    Tendulkar became the fourth pair of batsmen to add 3000 plus runs in the tests
    played on home soil. The following table lists out the four pairs who have
    achieved the feat:

  • Twenty20 is a format eminently suitable for the bits-and-pieces
    player, the one who does something in every department of the game, not
    always at the top-drawer level. However, T20 also calls for top-quality
    all-rounders who perform with the bat and ball very effectively. This
    article looks at such players.

    The qualification criteria
    are 200 runs and 10 wickets. Unfortunately, the bar has to be kept
    somewhat low since very few matches have been played in the format.

    The
    first table looks at the overall quantitative achievements. I have just
    added the runs scored and wickets captured multiplied by 25 to derive
    an overall achievement table in terms of Equivalent Runs. This may be
    longevity based but should not detract from the achievements of the
    players.
