Could someone confirm this..

..because I am just too lazy. Apparently, is Sauravda scores a hundred tomorrow (or in the 2nd innings), he will join Greg Chappel as the only two players to have played (x) number of Tests and scored a hundred in their first and last matches.

Is it true? If it is, how fkin ironic is that?

john, there's more irony - around that infamous Dada drop, their careers were eerily similar in many ways - no. of tests played, captained, catches etc. was all set to do a piece on that, but left it in pieces.
see if i can dig out that file, with the stats comparison at that point.

Azhar is the other one. 100 in the 99th test.

Dada missed 100 in the first innings..let's see if he can get it in the second innings :P

Its true but Ganguly decided to be in the company of Bradman rather than Chappell...

oops... I forgot he missed the 100. Sorry got confused with the earlier one... maybe for fun, he should not have played the last test.
