Cricket players involved in the two tied tests

Mandar said...

They were all a part of tied tests! Maninder and Ravi were the batsman in the tied test between Ind and Aus and Greg Matthews bowled the last over. I don't know why the West Indian, I think, Ian Meckiff is in the picture apart from the fact that he was run out in the tied test match between WI and Aus.

Ans - last over of the 2 tied test matches.

Maninder Singh was dismissed by Greg Mathews (the second pic) in 1986 while Ravi Shastri was at the other end (3rd pic)

Wes Hall bowled the last over in the tied test of 1960

vikas said...

All of them were principal characters involved in the last overs of the only 2 tied tests in history :)

Wes Hall was the bowler in the 1st. And Greg Mathews was the bowler & Shastri-Maninder were the last pair in the 2nd.

Manider singh/Ravi shastri were the last batsmen during the tied test match vs Australia in 1986 and Greg Mathews was bowling.

Wes hall was the bowler who was bowling in the tied test batch between West Indies and Australia in 1960

Tied tests.

India- Australia Match 1986 - madras . Maninder Singh batsman. Ravi Shastri - non striker. Greg matthews - Bowler.
The fourth one is probably West Indian player part of the 1st tied test at Brisbane in 1960.

maninder (singh), ravi (shashtri), greg (mathews) and wes (hall) - all involved in tied tests.

but isnt this a weird connect ? why were the others left out ?

MountCleverest said...

maninder singh, greg matthews, lance gibbs and ravi shastri.

except for gibbs the other 3 were involved in the last over of the tied test match bw india and australia...

and as for lance gibbs, it seems he was the 12th man(and the substitute fielder) during the first tied test match.(thanks to cricinfo)

is that really THE connection??
cant think of anything else as of now...
