How many people have made a century and a duck on Test debut, as Keaton Jennings did in Mumbai? asked Rajiv Radhakrishnan from England Before Keaton Jennings debut double of 112 and 0 for England against India in Mumbai, there had been three previous instances of this in Tests. Gundappa Viswanath marked his first cap, for India against Australia in Kanpur in 1969-70, with 0 and 137, while Andrew Hudson made 163 and 0 in South Africas first Test after readmission, against West Indies in Bridgetown in 1991-92. Mohammad Wasim scored 0 and 109 not out on his debut for Pakistan, against New Zealand in Lahore in 1996-97. New Zealands Bruce Taylor had an unusual double in his first match, against India in Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1964-65: after making 105 in the first innings - his maiden first-class century - he was left 0 not out in the second when his captain declared. Overall, there have now been 158 instances of a player making a century and a duck in the same Test.At the MCG last week, David Warner scored 159 of Australias 264. Was this a record percentage for a one-day international? asked Chris Abraham from AustraliaDavid Warners superb effort against New Zealand at the MCG last week amounted to 59.09% of the total. This is the second-highest percentage by an Australian in a completed ODI innings, after 60.73% by Damien Martyn, who made an undefeated 116 out of 191, also against New Zealand, after opening in Auckland in 1999-2000. The overall list is headed by two famous one-day innings from the 1980s: at Old Trafford in 1984, Viv Richards scored 189 not out of West Indies 272 for 9 (69.48%) against England, while at Tunbridge Wells during the 1983 World Cup, Kapil Dev thrashed 175 of Indias 266 for 8 (65.78%) against Zimbabwe.I noticed that the UAEs Swapnil Patil scored 99 not out in his first one-day international. Has anyone else come so close to a century on debut? asked Khadim Khan from DubaiSwapnil Patil had reached 98 for the UAE against Scotland when he faced the last ball of the final of the World Cup qualifying competition in Lincoln in New Zealand, in February 2014. Sadly, he could only manage a single, and finished with 99 not out. The only other batsman to score 99 in his first ODI is Eoin Morgan - now Englands captain, but playing for his native Ireland at the time. Morgan was run out towards the end of the Irish innings against Scotland in Ayr in 2006. He received an ICC reprimand for swearing as he left the field following his dismissal.Daniel Vettori took his 100th Test wicket when he was only 21. Was this a record? asked Jamie Houghton from New ZealandDaniel Vettori is one of three bowlers who took their 100th Test wickets when they were only 21. The others are the Indian pair of Kapil Dev and Harbhajan Singh - and Kapil was 26 days younger than Vettori when he reached three figures, in January 1980. Harbhajan, who reached the landmark in May 2002, was about nine months older than Vettori. Ishant Sharma and Saqlain Mushtaq took their respective 100th Test wickets when they were 22, while Waqar Younis, Irfan Pathan, Graham McKenzie, Wasim Akram, Ian Botham and Alf Valentine were all 23. The oldest of the 175 men to take 100 Test wickets so far was the England slow left-armer Bobby Peel, who was 39 years and six months old when he got there in 1896. Australias Clarrie Grimmett and Ray Illingworth of England were also 39 when they reached 100 wickets. Steven Smith faced 157 balls against New Zealand the other day. Whats the longest individual innings in ODIs, by balls faced? asked Chris Appleton from AustraliaSteven Smiths 164 from 157 balls for Australia against New Zealand in Sydney last week was the eighth-longest individual innings for Australia in ODIs, level with Warners 163 from 157 against Sri Lanka in Brisbane, in March 2012. The longest for Australia was by David Boon, who consumed 168 balls in making a match-winning 102 not out against India in Hobart, in 1991-92. But they are all a little way down the overall list, which is headed by New Zealands Glenn Turner, who faced 201 balls in scoring 171 not out against East Africa in Edgbaston during the 1975 World Cup. Turner is second on the table too, having used up 177 balls for 114 not out against India at Old Trafford a week later. These innings, though - and the next three on the overall list - were in 60-over matches: the longest in a 50-over ODI is 173 balls, by Indias Rohit Sharma in his record 264 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata in 2014-15. That just pipped Ashish Bagais 172-ball 137 not out for Canada v Scotland in Nairobi in 2006-07.Which father and son, both Test players, both reached the grand old age of 90? asked David Lambert from England This long-lived pair were Frank Hearne, who played two Tests for England and four for South Africa in the 19th century, and his son George Hearne, who won three caps for South Africa in the 1920s. Both father and son made it past 90 years of age: Frank died in 1949, and George in 1978. Frank also had two Test-playing brothers - Alec, who lived to 88, and George, who reached 75. The list of longest-lived Test players is headed by Norman Gordon, who played five Tests for South Africa in the late 1930s and died in 2014 at the age of 103.Post your questions in the comments below Alec Burks Jersey.
