Bishan Bedi on his first Test and other early milestones
February 8, 2010
First time I could not sleep because of the excitement of the next day
The night before my Test debut. I had never even watched a Test match before that.
First bit of advice from my coach
Never question an umpire's decision.
First time I lost my cool on the field
When I noticed English bowlers using Vaseline to keep the shine on the ball.
First batsman who appeared unconquerable
First time I was awestruck by a person
When I met Sir Don Bradman for the first time.
