team to ask questions becaus
7 Bangladesh players to take a five-wicket haul on their Test debut, including Mehedi Hasan. Incidentally, four of those have been in the last five years. No team has had more than three five-wicket hauls by debutants in this period. Across all formats, Bangladesh bowlers have taken seven five-fors in debut in last five years, again the most for any team, by a distance.1 Younger Bangladesh bowler to take five-wicket hauls in Tests, than Mehedi who was 18 years, 361 days. Enamul Haque Jnr had taken three five-fors at a younger age than Mehedis in 2005. Overall, Mehedi is the fourth-youngest bowler to take a five-wicket haul on Test debut.1 Number of players to score 1000-plus runs in a year in Tests batting at No. 6 or lower. Jonny Bairstow became the first to achieve this in this year. The previous most runs by any player at No. 6 or below was 984 by VVS Laxman in 2002. He was also the first player to go past 1000 Test runs this year.6 Partnerships of 50 or more runs between Bairstow and Moeen Ali in Tests this year for the sixth-wicket - most by any pair for wickets six or lower in a year. Four pairs had five such stands including Andrew Flintoff and Geraint Jones for England in 2004. The 88-run stand is the fourth consecutive 50-plus stand between Bairstow and Moeen and the sixth consecutive for England by any pair.21 Runs added by Englands first three wickets, is their lowest in the first innings of any Test in Asia. Their previous lowest was 22 runs in Galle in 2007-08. However, their next four wickets each added more than what their first three wickets could add in total and thus they finished at 258 for 7 at the end of the day.68 Runs scored by Moeen in this innings - his highest score in Tests outside England. This was his third fifty in an away Test and averages 23.85. His home average is 40.96 with three hundreds and five fifties.142 Tests missed by Gareth Batty between his last Test and this come-back Test - most by any player. Battys last Test was more than 11 years ago, also against Bangladesh, in June 2005.133 Previous most Tests played by an England player, by Alec Stewart. Alastair Cook appeared in his 134th Test in this match to become the most capped England player. Stewart held the record for England since 2002 when he went past Graham Goochs 118 Tests.2008 Last time Bangladesh fielded three or more debutants in a Test before this match - three against New Zealand in Dunedin. Since their inaugural Test, this was the fifth time they played three debutants in the same match and first in a home Test.

Captaining a cricket team is about man management, according to Mahela Jayawardene, who said his style of leadership was about allowing individuals the space to express themselves within a framework of rules. Jayawardene was speaking on ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket, to be aired on July 22 on SONY ESPN, about captaincy and how he grew into the job for Sri Lanka.Jayawardene captained Sri Lanka in 38 Tests (won 18, lost 12), 126 ODIs (won 68, lost 49) and 19 T20Is (won 12, lost 6) between 2004 and 2013. Under his leadership, they made the finals of the 2007 World Cup and the 2012 World T20.During his tenure as captain, Jayawardene said he took pains to understand the players under his charge. I thing its about man management for me number one, because the team will trust you more than a coach or anyone else, he said. You need to understand the characters in the team and allow them to showcase what theyve got, give them that freedom but in a manner that, you know, you dont treat each and every individual differently because there should be a set of rules to guide all these people.But at the same time, they have that little bit of freedom to express themselves and to understand who they are, I mean the background, the family backgrounds, what triggers them, how do they react to situations and how can you get the best out of them.Jayawardene felt that a good way to build a rapport with the players was to be a friend rather than a captain at the top giving orders.I realised I could get the best out of the guys a different way, where Id be their friend and then allow them to be leaders in their own right, allow them to make decisions and back those decisions, and tell theem that theyve done a good job.dddddddddddd Even when they make mistakes we sit down and have a discussion … and they would like to know that from you rather than someone else or a selector or a coach.Jayawardenes career overlapped with that of his close friend Kumar Sangakkara, who captained Sri Lanka in 82 matches across formats between 2009 and 2012. He was a senior player while Jayawardene was captain and vice versa, and Jayawardene said their personal equation had not interfered with team dynamics.When Kumar was captain, I would always question certain decisions he made and when I was captain he would do the same, Jayawardene said. You need that kind of friend and those kind of people in your team. I allowed people to ask questions because thats when I would make better decisions as a captain. I allowed the younger members of the team to ask questions because they might have a brilliant idea and if you shut them down, you will never know that.So my theory on teamwork is everyone talks and everyone has to contribute and I will pick things from them, and if nothing comes up then Ill take the decision but whatever the decision I take out there, its my decision, I take responsibility for that. It doesnt matter that it came from a different person, but its my decision once Ive made that call. So, Kumar was fantastic in the sense that we had very honest, opinionated discussions on certain matters and they were good for both of us.Watch ESPNcricinfo Talking Cricket with Mahela Jayawardene at 9.30 pm (IST) on July 22 (Friday) on SONY ESPN Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
