An offspinning allrounder of middling ability, Noel David was flown to the Caribbean in 1997 to replace the injured Javagal Srinath in one of those incredibly muddle-headed decisions. A virtual passenger until the Test series was over, David sprang into action in the ODI's, with his nagging off breaks claiming 3 for 21 on debut at Port-of-Spain. More than his contributions with bat or ball,
David hogged the attention for some dazzling work in the field. He made the squad for the Asia Cup in Colombo later that year but played in only one game after which his services were dispensed with for good. David has a first-class best of 207 not out against Andhra in 1993-94 when Hyderabad scored 944 for 6 dec - the highest score in Ranji history. After retiring he emigrated to the United States.
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
