    The oldest Twenty20 debutant

    Today, England take on Sri Lanka at the Rose Bowl in Sri Lanka's first Twenty20 international.

    Sanath Jayasuriya, who never really retired from one-day cricket, could play in the game and make his Twenty20 debut. It made me wonder about who the oldest debutant in a Twenty20 international was.

    The search ended with two candidates: Glenn McGrath and Brad Hogg. McGrath played in the first ever Twenty20 international, against New Zealand. Hogg played in the sixth Twenty20 international, as part of Australia's tour of South Africa earlier this year.

    The winner: Brad Hogg, by a margin of 10 days. Hogg was 35 years 18 days old on debut while McGrath was 35 years 8 days old on debut.

    Sanath Jayasuriya is be 36 years 350 days old and will be a runaway winner in case he plays today!
