Haroon Rashid Ex Pakistani Batsman

Haroon Rashid was a Jekyll and Hyde batsman. On flat pitches he was one of the most handsome imaginable, pull-driving offspinners - especially England's in 1977-78 - to kingdom come, and cover-driving like Wally Hammond.

Mitchel Strac Unique Feat of Two Hat-tricks in a Same Match

Australian Left Arm Fast Bowler Mitchell Starc became the first bowler in nearly 40 years and first tin Australia to claim two hat-tricks in the same first-class match. The unique feat is happened in Australia when he blasted out Western Australia's last three batsmen to claim outright points for New South Wales against Western Australia at Hurstville Oval.  Although, he was wicket less in the 2nd innings, but he had Jason Behrendorff caught behind and then bowled David Moody with the last two balls of his 15th over, then returned to have Jon Wells caught at slip by the captain Steven Smith with the first ball of his 16th. This hat-trick followed another on day three of the Sheffield Shield match, when he had dismissed Behrendorff, Moody and Simon Mackin.

Mitchel Starc achievement was the first case since Amin Lakhani managed to do the same feat for a Combined XI against the Indian tourists in a match at Multan in 1978. So, overall only seven other bowlers have taken two hat-tricks in the same match, and only one Australian T.J. Matthews doing so against South Africa at Manchester in 1912. The Matthews' feat is also the only time two hat-tricks have been taken by a bowler in the same Test match.

Mitchel Starc old-ball angle from around the wicket and reversing the ball away was fiendishly difficult to deal with for any batsman. It's difficult for batters, let alone tail-enders. Hence to take two hat-tricks in a game is really amazing.  Captain Steve Smith said, I think he has probably taken a little more time to get going and get some rhythm. But the back end of today showed why he's world-class. Therefore, the sheer vicious pace of Mitchel Starc to obliterate opposing tail enders are a great example of world class bowler. He’s such a wonderful bowler when he’s in full rhythm.

Rashid Latif is such a wonderful wicket keeper. He always took the catch in acrobatic style. Check out the great catch of him of Vikram Solanki off Muhammad Sami 86 miles bowl in 2003.

One Match Wonder: Neil Mallender Bowling 3 for 72 vs Pakistan at Leeds in 1992

Neil Mallender received first massive chance late in life, and seized the opportunity wonderfully well. Neil Mallender was selected for England at the age of 30 to play against Pakistan on a seaming Headingley Leeds pitch in 1992, his was the epitome of a "horses for courses" selection. He took 5 for 50 and eight wickets in the match (the best figures by an English debutant for nine years), helping to win the game and thereby ensuring his selection for the final Test of the series. He took 8 for 122 in his debut match but after that he found conditions harder at The Oval, but stuck to his task well on a good batting track.

Rodney Redmond: One Test Wonder Never Again in the Reckoning for a Test berth

Rodney Redmond was a tall, aggressive opening batsman as well as a useful slow left-armer and a sound fielder. At the age of 28 he came into New Zealand squad for the third Test against Pakistan at Auckland in 1972-73, he cracked 107 and 56 giving him a Test batting average of 81.50. His century included 5 successive fours off a Majid Khan over and came at almost a run-a-ball. He also played two One Day Internationals for New Zealand managed just 3 runs.
He was an automatic choice for the 1973 squad to tour England. But he struggle on his form on the trip was poor - he managed 483 runs at 28.41 and did not play in any of the Tests. He subsequently missed the 1973-74 season, was never again in the reckoning for a Test berth and played only two more summers before retiring.
