I think it was Phillips Emry. Trivia - Only keeper other than Healy and Gilchrist to keep to Shane Warne

Phil Emry? He played against Pakistan I think.

Another trivia question:

Which 2 batsman have a test average of 0.0

Hint: One of them is related to a great English batsman.

I know of only 2 if somebody knows more add it on here.

As far as I know, there are more than two who played just one Test and were dismissed without scoring.

One I remember offhand is Gavin Hamilton who played for Scotland in the '99 World Cup and then one Test for England.

would like to know your thoughts ...

How about giving Venugopal Rao a chance for couple of one dayers ...He has done well in the IPL... He can bowl decent spin and can definitely has a better bat than Jadeja and Kohli

I would prefer Abhishek Nayar over Rao. And no offence lets not go by IPL form , we have seen that with Rohit Sharma and RP Singh .

By the look of it , 300 plus should be the target set by India, since Aussie's batting has got more strength by inclusion of Shaun Marsh. Hope we dont goof it up today!!

India 167/3 (26.1 ov)
Excellent run rate so far.
Point is can we reach 320 + as this is a pure batting wicket.
