    Here is another stat i found funny and interesting.

    Wasim Akram, Pakistan's best fast bowler has a highest test score of 257*, it seems strange that India's best ever batsman and arguably the best batsman in modern cricket Sachin Tendulkar has a lower highest test score at 248*.

    Along the same lines, Australia's fast bowler Jason Gillespie scored a 201* vs Bangladesh in test match but our own Saeed Anwar never scored a test 200. Saeed's highest score in test cricket was 188*.
