    Such a ridiculous stat

    I could be wrong on this, since I'm not sure I used Cricinfo's StatsGuru v 2.0 properly.

    The last time Australia, hereinafter occasionally referred to in this blog as 'The Great B*st@#ds' (for the way they manage to fight back and win so bloody often), lost a test after scoring less than 350 in their first innings while batting first was the the world record chase game where West Indies chased down 417 after both teams scored 240 in their first innings (Would it have been one of the rare occasions where both sides scored an identical first innings total?)

    This is only the third time that the captain of 'The Great B*st@#ds', Ricky Ponting, hereinafter occasionally referred to in this blog as Ruthless Ponting, has scored less than 10 runs in a test match. The last two times this happened were during a couple of special games: Hobart, 1999 [he got a pair in fact!] where Gilchrist & Langer took 'The Great B*st@#ds' to an improbable victory and Eden Gardens, 2001 where Laxman, Dravid & Harbhajan took India to an even more improbable victory.
