Centuries on Debut / Time Taken to Make First Hundred

Ben Foakes made a century in his first Test innings last week, and this fitted in nicely with some other analysis we were doing after CricInfo were asked to look at one or two things by their followers.

Four Stokers have made a century on their debut, (in Claire Trafford’s case she arrived on the scene with a score of 213 not out!), and many others have got to three figures in pretty quick time.

Ducks

Ducks by Brothers in the Same Innings

A rare – but not unique – piece of history in the first test between Pakistan and Australia recently where the Marsh brothers were both dismissed for a duck in the same innings. Andrew Samson at Test Match Special, and soon after Steven Lynch at CricInfo, looked into how many times this has happened, and there were only seven previous instances:

This week’s Ask Steven column on CricInfo returned to the question of the highest percentage of a total scored in a One Day International.

The last time he was asked the question we had a look at our own centuries, (links to the original articles at the bottom of this page), and have added the hundreds scored so far this season to the list.

Toby Tarrant Award

My Greatest XI – Toby Tarrant

Another “My Greatest XI “ has dropped into the Club in-box, this one courtesy of Toby Tarrant who writes…

Plus we need him to lead the warm up and roll the wicket.

My Greatest XI – Adrian Mills

The latest Stoker to submit his Greatest XI is our newest member of the 500-club Adrian Mills. Selected by many others in their best ever sides, it’s time for Po to share his own selection with the world. Po writes…

I’ve had 16 seasons at Stoke, (so far), during which time I’ve played alongside hundreds of other players of varying abilities. Selecting the best will always be a matter of judgement so feel free to disagree with my selections – I know some of you will. I’ve decided for the purposes of this list that I have to have played at least 10 games with each player. That way I’ve been able to disregard anyone I’ve just played the odd one or two games with. Here goes…
