A first time captain, 4 debutants, first over wickets, wagging tails, century from an ICL rebel, wicketless Mendis, Younis Khan picking up wickets, opener nightwatchman, first ball wicket for Mendis; and a whole lot more.
On top, we will have a result on the 4th morning of the test.
To say that the first test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has been happening will be a gross understatement.
A lot has happened during the three days of this test, but 3 things have stood out for me.
- A nightwatchman walking out as opener.
- A debutant getting the wicket of the opposing captain in both innings.
- Debutants picking up 16 out of the 32 wickets that have fallen thus far.
I don't know if either of these have happened before in a test match; I wouldn't be surprised if these are first time instances.
If someone has the facts, please enlighten me.
I'm going to go and do some digging myself.
