This life lines of Darren Gough was published in “The Cricketer” in Dec 2000



Most Memorable day in Cricket:
My first one day international and my first test match, both against New Zealand in 1994. My ambition in life was to play for my country and I felt very proud. The Sydney Test if scoring 51 was great taking 6 for 49 was even better. It was my first five wicket haul in test cricket and put me on the honors board. When I got my 5th wicket I said a little prayer Worst Day in Cricket: England A vs. Natal on South Africa’s A tour. Martin Bicknell broke down after two over’s which left us with just three bowlers.

Pakistan were 392-9 at lunch. Resuming at 281-6, Pakistan furthered their innings with Sarfraz Ahmed scoring a fighting century with 111 not out and added 80 for the unfinished tenth wicket stand with Rahat Ali who is 16 not out in the extended two-and-half hour session.  He's first Pakistani Wicket-keeper to Score 3 Tons in a Calendar year. Sarfraz Ahmed Last 10 Innings: 48, 55, 52*, 103, 55, 109, 15*, 19*, 13* & 112 Average: 96.83.

Misbah-ul-Haq Equals Fastest Test Hundred

No one can believe, that a 40 years old guy can make a fastest Test hundred. Misbah-ul-Haq converted the fastest fifty in Test cricket just off 21 balls and register his name into the joint-fastest century off 56 balls on the fourth day in Abu Dhabi. But Misbah-ul-Haq did it brilliantly against Australia in the 2nd test at Abu Dhabi on Nov 02, 2014. Before that he done a fastest fifty in the history of test cricket. So it likes a dream that Pakistan captain holds the two respected records of test cricket, and make his name on the top of list. This is simply unbelievable for whole world, especially for Pakistan fans. He has been criticizing due to his famous word "Tuk Tuk". A magnificent inning played by him, which he can proud himself through out his career. We should give a huge applause to Misbah for this special inning. We're sure now he'll get the respect as he deserve.
