RG Sharma’s 85 in the second T20I against Bangladesh at Rajkot on 07.11.19 was his sixth score of fifty as captain opener in T20Is. He emulated AJ Finch of Australia who had also scored six fifties as captain opener in T20Is. The following table list the fifties scored by these two batsmen.  But the very next day, that is on 08.11.19, AJ Finch owned the record for most fifties by captain openers in T20Is with his seventh fifty – 52 not out against Pakistan at Perth. This is clear example of how the records are obliterated so fast the game of cricket. This is mainly due to many teams are involved in the  games across the world

Deccan Herald and its cricket statistician

Deccan Herald, leading English Newspaper in Karnataka is using Sri Arun Gopalakrishnan as its Statistician for providing statistical tit-bits on cricket matches.

A Couple of days back, one of my friends, telephoned me whether it was your son who has provided the stats for Deccan Herald. The stats provided by Sri Arun Gopalakrishnan contained some errors, it appears.

I wish to make it clear through my portal that my sons – Aravind and Anand – are not cricket statisticians.

I also reiterate that Sri Arun Gopalakrishnan and myself are not relatives. He is a Tamilian and  I am a Kannadiga.

It is a known fact that Tamilians and Keralites add the ‘n’ to their names – such as Ramachandran, Koteeswaran, Narayanan, Ananthapadmanabhan, etc.,

I requested Sri Madhu Jawali, Senior Correspondent of Deccan Herald to use the byline – Arun Gopalakrishnan {not related to HR Gopala Krishna} whenever the newspaper uses the stats furnished by Arun Gopalakrishnan.  But he refused to use such byline. Hence this  piece of  information through my portal
