Mithun became only the second Karnataka bolwer to capture ten or more wickets on debut, after GV Kumar, who had taken 13-107 (7-53 and 6-54) against Tamilnadu at Bangalore in 1977/78.

Mithun became the ninth Karnataka bowler to capture five or more wickets in an innings on debut in Ranji Trophy. His twin five fors provide the eleventh occasion of a Karnatka bowler capturing five or more wickets on debut. He is the first Karnataka bowler to achieve the feat against Uttar Pradesh. MG Vijayasarathy was the first bowler from Karnataka to capture five wickets in an innings on debut. He had captured 6 for 23 against Madras at Madras in the inaugural match of the Ranji Trophy in 1934/35.

Zimbabwe in Bangladesh : Hosts win the third one dayer

Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe : Third One dayer at Dhaka {SBNS} on 31.10.09 : Bangladesh won by four wickets

With this win, Bangladesh went one match ahead of Zimbabwe in the Head to Head count. It was 23rd win for Bangladesh in 45 encounters between the two teams. Zimbabwe has won 22 games.

H Masakadza completed 1000 runs in this calendar year when he was on 20 during his knock of 84 in this game. At the end of this game his run aggregate stood at 1064. He joined the two other batsmen – both Aussies – RT Ponting {1076} and MEK Hussey {1060} – who have aggregated 1000 runs in 2009

H Masakadza became the fourth Zimbabwean batsman to aggregate 1000 plus runs in a calendar year. The other three are GW Flower {1116 in 2001}, SV Carlisle {1082 in 2001} and A Flower {1060 in 2001}.

It should be noted with interest that no Zimbabwean batsman aggregated 1000 runs in a calendar year since 2001 when the trio – GW Flower, SV Carlise and A Flower – had earned this distinction.

H Masakadaza registered his 14th One day half century when he made 84 in this game. It was also his 17th one day fifty

H Masakadza’s 84 in this game represent the 52nd occasion of a Zimbabwean captain registering a fifty in one day games. H Masakadaza’s maiden fifty {84 in this game} as captain came in his fifth appearance as captain of Zimbabwe.

Mohammad Ashraful was making his 150th one day appearance in this game. His 150 appearances include two games he played representing Asia Eleven. He became the first Bangladesh cricketer to appear in 150 one day games. The previous record for most one day appearance was held by Khaled Mashud who had played 126 one day games.

Mohammad Ashraful celebrated his 150th appearance by scoring a half century {63} which was his 19th one day half century and his 22nd one day fifty.

Tamim Iqbal’s 80 in this game represent his 11th half century as an opening batsman. He now has the record of most half centuries by a Bangladesh opening batsman. By registering his 11th half century in this game, Tamim Iqbal went past Shahriar Nafees and Javed Omar who had ten fifties to their credit.

1000 runs in a calendar year : MEK Hussey latest entrant into Aussie list

1000 runs in a calendar year : MEK Hussey latest entrant into Aussie list

MEK Hussey joined the select band of Australian batsmen who have aggregated 1000 runs in a calendar year. He reached the milestone when he was on 21 during the course of his knock of 81 not out in the third one day game against India at Delhi on 31.10.09. At the end of this game, his run aggregate stood at 1060. He is the second batsman after RT Ponting {1076} to reach the milestone in 2009. Ponting had achieved the feat at Nagpur on 28.10.09.

Infact, Hussey is the third batsman to reach the milestone of 1000 runs in 2009, as H Masakadza of Zimbabwe has also aggregated 1064 runs in the third one day game between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe at Mirpur on 31.01.09

Hussey’s fear provides the 15th occasion of an Australian batsman reaching the milestone of 1000 plus runs in a calendar year. The following table enlists all the 15 occasions.

Ranji Trophy inagural match was completed in a day

Ranji Trophy inagural match was completed in a day

Sri C Keshavamurthy, Champion Statistician on Indian Domestic Cricket, pens a special article for crickick.com visitors on the first ever Ranji Trophy match between Madras and Mysore which was played on 04.11.34. This match was completed on a single day. Read on CKM’s thoughts on this historic match

Madras (now Chennai) is not new to cricket. It is learnt that cricket was played here as early as 1855 on military grounds as a sort of recreation of the soldiers. Matches were played by the Cricket Clubs as early as 1932/33 and 1933/34 for the Raja of Palayampatti Shield and Bishop Waller Shields. Even test cricket had its birth in India way back in 1933/34 and Madras had staged a test at Chepauk ground from 10th to 13th Februry 1934. As time took its toll, Madras had the distinction of becoming the first centre to boast of India’s inaugural victory in 25 tests over a span of 20 years when it beat England at the Chepauk ground on 10th February 1952. It has also the rare privilege of hosting a tied test match (only the 2nd instance in the history of test cricket) between India and Australia in September 1986.

The idea of having a Premier National championship – the Ranji Trophy (named after KS Ranjitsinhji, popularly known throughout the cricket world as the great Ranji) was mooted in the summer of 1934 when the BCCI at its meeting at Simla decided to conduct a cricket tournament on an yearly basis to keep cricket at the highest level on the lines of County matches in England and Sheffield Shield matches in Australia. And when the question of selecting the first ever venue for the National Championship came up, Madras was chosen and what better place could there have been for the inaugural match of the prestigious tournament than Madras which had earlier hosted a test match. Madras has the prevelege of hosting the first ever Duleep Trophy match too in 1961-62

On November 3, 1934 – Madras city had witnessed heavy rain and many in cricket circles thought it may well interfere the inaugural match of the tournament. Some others – perhaps those who were curious to peep in and have a look at the match presumed that rain was a good augury for the first ever match in Ranji Trophy. And so it proved to be as the historic match took place on November 4, 1934 without any hurdles.

The inaugural match itself proved to be a great hit in that it was played between the traditional rivals – Madras (now Tamilnadu) and Mysore (now Karnataka) – just as the Ashes series is played between England and Australia. Since it was the first ever match in Ranji Trophy and perhaps nobody had visualized that this tournament would be a huge success in the coming years, not much importance was given to statistics – which has acquired a major role now. Fall of wickets do not indicate the name of the outgoing batsmen. The cricketing fraternity should be thankful to Sri SK Gurunathan for recording this match in his “Twelve Years of Ranji Trophy”. Sri SK Gurunathan was the first Honorary Official Statistician of the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

Despite the overnight rain and the faint morning drizzle on the opening day which resulted for a late start in the match, the two teams were keen to play and enthusiasm was writ large on the faces of the players. It was quite natural because this was the first big game to have come their way and everyone was keen to perform. When play commenced on November 4, 1934 at 11.00 am, two Englishmen, CP Johnstone (Madras) and Major MS Teversham (Mysore) captained the rival teams. Johnstone, left hand opening batsman and an excellent slip fielder, won the first toss in the championship and invited Mysore to bat. The same could not have been said of the Mysore Captain as he had not played cricket with the Mysoreans earlier. In fact, Mysore had lacked match practice.

Mysore batsmen were clueless on the wet wicket and it was no surprise that it was in deep trouble at the beginning itself when its openers N Curtis and P McCosh went in to bat. Morapakkam Joysam Gopalan – the Madras fast medium bowler and the lone test cricketer from among the two teams (he had made his debut for India against England at Calcutta in January 1934; he had also the distinction of playing Hockey at international level – he was selected in the Indian Team for Berlin Olympics) entered the record books as the first bowler to deliver the first ball in the history of the premier tournament to N Curtis who took the first strike. Although Gopalan bowled the first over (and could not capture a wicket in the first innings), the havoc was done by AG Ram Singh, the left arm spinner (his two sons AG Kripal Singh and AG Milkha Singh represented India), who partnered Gopalan at the other end. Mysore players with no exceptions had virtually no answer to the guile of Ram Singh who fully exploited the rain affected pitch. Coupled with his Captain CP Johnstone (a Burmah Shell Executive and who played for Kent in Eng), both sliced through the Mysore batting line up. Curtis top scored the innings with 15 while the only other player to reach double figures was Renshaw Nailer (he had earned a name as a powerful hitter in the Presidency matches in Madras), who made 14. Five players were dismissed for ducks. The only notable partnership of a meagre 24 runs came between Curtis and Nailer for the 4th wicket. MS Teversham – the Mysore skipper (a major in the Army) achieved the rare distinction of becoming the first Captain in the championship to be dismissed for a duck. Wreckers in chief – Ramsingh took 6/19 in 13.2 overs (the first five wicket haul in the national championship) and Johnstone bowling off-cutters, had figures of 4/10 in 6 overs. Mysore players whose batting performance gave a feeling as though they were afraid of the devil in the pitch, eventually were responsible for their team to be dismissed for a paltry 48 – the first double digit score in the history of the national championship. SVT Chari kept wickets brilliantly for Madras and effected 4 stumpings, while C Ramaswamy held 5 catches in the match.

Madras, although rejoiced at keeping the opposition at bay, too did not fare better but the home team batsmen were not as timid as those of the opposition and could muster 130 in 43 overs, for a lead of 82 runs – a shade better than the performance of the visitors. The restricted total of Madras was mainly due to the devastating spell of 6/23 in 8 overs by MG Vijayasarathy who bowled medium off breaks. (he later rose to the level of an international umpire and who was also the first player treasurer of the Mysore State Cricket Association (now KSCA). he also served as its Vice President and President.) and excellent bowling (3/29) by Safi Darashah (who later took to broadcasting as a commentator). Cotah Ramaswami (who also represented India in the Davis Cup in 1922), top scoed with 26 for Madras. NN Swarna (22) and MJ Gopalan (23) were the other leading scorers for Madras. Many felt that if Vijayasarathy had opened the bowling with Nagaraja Rao, the home team could have been dismissed for a lesser score as Vijayasarathy coming as a third change bowler caused the lower order collapse – all the dismissals, being in a row. .

When Mysore switched to batting for a second time, everyone thought it would put up a decent performance. However, this was not to be as once again wickets fell at regular intervals. Mysore batsmen refused to learn from the first innings debacle and paid a heavy price for the inept batting performance for the second time in the match. Ram Singh was in his elements again demolishing the Mysore innings with his tantalizing spinners and accounting for another five wicket haul (5/16in 14.3 overs). With this he scripted his name into the record books as the first player to take 10 or more wickets in a match. Gopalan with 3/20 and Johnstone with 2/10 ably assisted him. T Murari (one of the founders of the MSCA) and Teversham with 11 runs each were the joint top scorers as batsmen for the visitors. Darashah was the only other player to reach the double figure (10). The irony was that Mr Extras top scored for the innings with 13. Mysore, in the end, folded up for a niggardly 59. BR Nagaraja Rao – a fast bowler of repute, also went into the record books as the first player to be dismissed for a ‘pair’ (duck in each innings).

Madras thus emerged victors by an innings and 23 runs. The inaugural match was over in a single day – a record that still stands today as till date no other match in the national championship has been completed in a single day. The whole match lasted for a total of 100.5 overs. Bowlers had a sway in the entire match and this match is still known as Ram Singh’s match for his magnificent bowling performance of 11/35 (6/19 and 5/16).

This match is also known for a humorous anecdote if you can call it like that. It is learnt that some of the supporters of the Mysore team who were excited to get a first hand knowledge of the inaugural day’s play, had gone to the Railway Station on the morning of the next day to purchase the news paper (in those days it is learnt that Bangalore did not have any reputed news paper and the news papers used to come from Madras by train) but were taken aback when they saw the team members alighting from the train, remarking that they would narrate the match event in detail instead of the news paper.

And what about those press people who covered this unforgettable match. The stalwarts N.S. Ramaswami, KN Prabhu and PN Sunderesan also find themselves in the record books as the famous trio of cricket writers to have witnessed and reported this historic match. The trio is no more as they have breathed their last.
