Fantasy Cricket – Highest Totals at Sharjah Cricket Stadium

One of the factors in selecting a dream team in online fantasy cricket is the pitch condition. During the 1980s and 1990s, Sharjah was the regular stadium to arrange international cricket matches. It was the period when Sharjah stadium roared into life with all the international team playing matches there.

After 2001, the stadium’s influence declined because of the controversies. And because BCCI decided not to let Indian team play in the ground for their rivalry with Pakistan. Now, again fantasy cricket league teams are heading to that ground and matches are being held. Soon Sharjah is going to regain its declined glory.

Fantasy Cricket – Day and Night Test Match History

Amongst the many formats of cricket matches, the fantasy cricket fans of 11wickets app for Android/iOS are now inclining over test series.

The test matches are gaining their lost momentum with the start of day and night matches again. With the Pink Ball Day & Night Test Match of India vs Bangladesh in November 2019, the craze has risen for the daily fantasy cricket fans.

Interestingly, even the online fantasy cricket fans who are not keen viewers of Test Matches have increasingly begun to follow it. A lot of people who want to know more about Day-Night Test Match, this post will walk you through some of the most important aspects of the Day-Night Cricket Test Match. Read on and play fantasy cricket leagues to win exciting prizes.

Knowing the History of Day-Night Cricket

Though the world knew much about day-night cricket only much later in the late 70s when Kerry Packer made it popular, the first game under the floodlights was played in 1952.

It was played at the Arsenal Stadium, where floodlights were installed in the summer before for football. The cricket match was played between the Arsenal Football Club and Middlesex County Cricket Club for the benefit of Jack Young.

It took two decades and a disgruntled media mogul to bring day and night matches back to popularity. It was not without difficulty that Kerry Packer made this format of the game popular. The tests that were played under the lights were not big crowd-pullers.

But the shorter format with just 50 overs attracted a lot of crowds.

Due to the disagreement between Packer and the Australian Cricket Board, the traditional cricket grounds were not available for the day-night matches. This forced the World Cup Series matches to be conducted in football stadiums, trotting tracks, and showgrounds. It was here for the first time “drop-in” pitches were used.

Day-Night Test Match for the First Time Ever

Many other things were done for the first time other than the timing. The name tests could not be used for the Kerry Packer tests and hence the name “supertests” was used for the first time.

It was in the first season of 1977-78 that for the first time, helmets were used in cricket.

This was because the WSC had adopted a more aggressive style of cricket to attract more people to

The Beginning of the Day-Night Test Matches

But the day & night format will come much later to the test matches. Though most countries welcomed the short format of the day & night matches England remained hesitant to join the bandwagon.

Another outcome of the day & night matches was the use of pink balls. In 2000 for the first time, pink balls were used in the official day & night match in West Indies between Guyana and Trinidad & Tobago.

Cricket Australia, the Indian Premier League, and the Bangladesh Cricket League also tried playing with the pink balls. Abu Dhabi hosted the curtain raiser game for the English cricket season as a day & night match using pink balls. The match had a good response.

It will be interesting to note that the first day & night first-class test match was played in India during April 1997, much earlier than it will hit the international cricket circuit. But only white balls were used in this Ranji Trophy final match between Delhi and Mumbai.

The first international day & night test match was played at the Adelaide Oval on the 27th of November 2015 between Australia and New Zealand. The series was of three day & night test matches using pink balls.

In October 2016 Dubai hosted the second day & night test match which was played between Pakistan and West Indies where Pakistan team was the winners. Australia also hosted two day & night test matches. One was against South Africa and the other against Pakistan. In August 2017 England also started playing the day & night test matches.

The daily fantasy cricket fans who play the game at 11Wickets App and website, find heaps of amazing records about the sports since all these years.

Today let us take a look at the records which almost none of the online fantasy cricket fans remember:

Most ducks in ODIs:

Undoubtedly, playing against Sanath Jayasuriya in the mid-90s was nothing less than a nightmare for most bowlers. But while Jayasuria holds the record for one the fastest ODI 50 on just 17 balls, this is not his only record. He also has the record for most ducks, 34, in ODIs to his name. Surprisingly, the man next to him is Shahid Afridi, who scored the fastest ODI century on just 37 balls, with 30 ducks. The third in the row is legendary, Wasim Akram, with 28 ducks.

Most ducks in Test cricket:

Guess, who is Jayasuriya’s counterpart in Test cricket? Yes, the man with more than 500 Test wickets under his belt; former West Indian pacer Courtney Walsh was bowled 43 times on duck in 185 Test innings. Chris Martin of New Zealand is second with 36 ducks and the great Australian bowler, Glenn McGrath, is third in the row with 35 ducks in 138 innings.

Most-times bowled out in Test cricket:

Rahul Dravid, famous for his style and technique, holds the distinction of most-times being bowled in Test cricket with 54 times. He is followed by Australian Alan Border, who has been bowled out 53 times.  Little master, Sachin Tendulkar remained unlucky in being bowled out and falls in the third rank with 48 times.

Most expensive over in test cricket:

Though Anderson could not inflict any real damage to the Australian batting line, he remained successful at bowling the most expensive over of Test cricket history, when George Bailey scored 28 runs in Perth against him. Robin Peterson of South Africa shares the record with Anderson.

Surprisingly, Peterson also conceded 35 runs in an ODI over against Thisara Perera, the Sri Lankan striker. He is second after Van Bunge of Holland who conceded six sixes on six balls – against Herschelle Gibbs.

Most no-balls and longest over in Test cricket:

Curtly Ambrose was undoubtedly the most fearsome bowler of the 90s. The big man, who captured over 400 wickets in Tests, bowled the longest 15-ball over containing record nine no-balls. The match was played in Perth in February 1993. Despite Ambrose’s errors in the first innings, West Indies won the match by 10 wickets and Ambrose was player of the match with a five-wicket haul.

Longest over in an ODI match

Muhammad Sami, the only bowler who made hat-tricks in all formats (T20 hat-trick in BPL) of the game, bowled a 17-ball over against Bangladesh containing seven wides and four no balls in Asia Cup 2004. It was the third over of the match while Sami’s first over was wicket maiden. It is the longest over so far in the 50-over format.

Most runs conceded in Test with no wicket

Imran Tahir, who was born in Pakistan but played for South Africa, has the worst bowling figures in Test cricket. In Adelaide Test, 2012, against Australia, he bowled 37-overs and conceded 267 runs without any wicket. Second to him is Khan Muhammad of Pakistan with 259 runs in 54-overs without any wicket against West Indies in 1958.

Slowest century in Tests:

While Corey Anderson recently broke Boom Boom’s record of the fastest ODI century after 17 years, Mudassar Nazar of Pakistan still holds the record of slowest century in Test cricket. In 1977-78, he completed his century in record 557 minutes at Lahore against England.

Golden duck in century tests:

Playing a 100 Test matches is itself a milestone but making the century Test memorable is exceptional. English skipper Alastair Cook is the only batsman of this special club with a golden duck in his 100th Test. Surprisingly, in his 99 previous Tests, Cook was never out on the first ball. But, in the second inning of his 100th Test played at Perth, he collected his first ever golden duck.
