So far, we have seen that
105 players scored a century on debut.
40 of them never scored a century again.
Of these 40, 19 never even scored a fifty again.
15 players took 10 wickets in a match on debut.
11 of them never took 10wm again.
Of these 11, 7 never even took 5wi again.
Now we look more closely at those who took 5wi on debut.
This seems more easy than scoring a century or taking 10wm on debut, since:
154 players took 5wi on debut. 9 of them took two fivers in the same match, making a total of 163 instances.
69 of them never took 5wi again.
Here is the list:
These include some (like Ganteaume and Redmond) who played only in one Test. Here we have WH Ashley (only one innings), DW Carr, MF Malone, CS Marriott, CA Smith and A Warren.
CS Marriott remains the only one to take a 10wm in his only Test. And there are several who played only 2 or 3 Tests.
In fact many did not even take 4 wickets in an innings (4wi) again.
There are 50 such players (amounting to 54 instances of 5wi). They are:
Some current players such as L Embuldeniya, Mahmudullah, Nayeem Hasan and L Ngidi may yet take 4wi or 5wi in the future. Mahmudullah is now one of his team’s leading batsmen.
