Apparently there was once a day when four Test double-centuries were scored around the world - when was this? asked Ranjit Prasad from India The day in question was March 14, 1999. The first of them came when Herschelle Gibbs took his overnight 101 to 211 not out for South Africa (who declared at 442 for 1) against New Zealand in Christchurch. Then, in the final of the Asian Test Championship in Bangladesh, Ijaz Ahmed made 211 and Inzamam-ul-Haq 200 not out for Pakistan against Sri Lanka in Dhaka. And finally, in the second Test against Australia in Kingston, West Indies captain Brian Lara finished the day at 212 not out (he was out after adding one more run next morning).How many Indians had scored a double-century in the West Indies before Virat Kohli? asked Raj Bhasin from India Virat Kohlis superb 200 in the first Test in Antigua last week was actually the fifth double-century for India in Tests in the Caribbean. The first two came in 1970-71: Dilip Sardesai hit 212 in the first Test in Kingston, and Sunil Gavaskar made 220 in the fifth one in Port-of-Spain, which helped ensure the draw that gave India their first series win over West Indies. Since then Navjot Singh Sidhu made 201 in Port-of-Spain in 1996-97, and Wasim Jaffer 212 in St Johns in 2006. There have been only three double-hundreds for West Indies: Everton Weekes hit 207 in Port-of-Spain in 1952-53, while Frank Worrell made 237 in Kingston later in the same series. Finally Carl Hooper hit 233 in Georgetown in 2001-02. Kohlis 200 was the fifth double-century by an Indian captain in a Test, but the first away from home: the previous-highest was Mohammad Azharuddins 192 against New Zealand in Auckland in 1989-90.Was the 213 runs conceded by Yasir Shah at Old Trafford a record for a Pakistan bowler? asked Ahmed Siddiqui from PakistanYasir Shahs 1 for 213 at Old Trafford were the most expensive figures for Pakistan in a Test against England, beating Fazal Mahmoods 2 for 192 at The Oval in 1962. But there have been three higher instances for Pakistan in all Tests. The top two places are occupied by perspiring bowlers in the same innings, West Indies 790 for 3 in Kingston in 1957-58 (when Garry Sobers made 365 not out): Khan Mohammad took 0 for 259, and Mahmood toiled through 85.2 overs to finish with 2 for 247. Saqlain Mushtaq took 3 for 237 against South Africa in Cape Town in 2002-03. There are two further instances of Pakistan bowlers conceding more than 200 runs in a Test innings: Saqlain took 1 for 204 against India in Multan in 2003-04, while Haseeb Ahsan finished with 6 for 202 against India in Madras (now Chennai) in 1960-61. Was Joe Roots 254 the highest Test score made in Manchester - or did Don Bradman do better? asked Philip Murray from England Don Bradman actually had a poor record at Old Trafford - in his three Tests there he made only 81 runs at 27, with a highest score of 30 not out in 1948. Its another Australian who holds the record for the highest score in a Test there: Bob Simpson extended his maiden century in 1964 to a massive 311. Englands record - and the only other score higher than Joe Roots 254 in 2016 - came in the very same match: Ken Barrington compiled 256 for England, as England countered Australias total of 656 by making 611 themselves. There have been only three other double-centuries in Old Trafford Tests. Gordon Greenidge made 223 for West Indies in 1984, Aamer Sohail 205 for Pakistan in 1992, and Gary Kirsten 210 for South Africa in 1998.Was Mohammed Shami the fastest Indian bowler to reach the milestone of 50 Test wickets? asked Sunit Kumar from Pakistan Mohammed Shami reached a half-century of wickets when he dismissed Marlon Samuels in the first innings of the first Test against West Indies at North Sound. It was his 13th match: seven Indian bowlers have made it to 50 in fewer games. Shamis current team-mate R Ashwin holds the national record, reaching 50 in nine matches, while Anil Kumble took 10, Harbhajan Singh and Narendra Hirwani 11. Three more famous spinners - Subhash Gupte, Erapalli Prasanna and Bhagwat Chandrasekhar - got there in 12 matches. Venkatesh Prasad, Pragyan Ojha and Ravindra Jadeja also needed 13 Tests, so Shami now shares the record for an Indian seamer with Prasad.Has any Test cricketer looked more like an Oscar winner than Chris Woakes looks like Eddie Redmayne? asked Will Elsom from England Thats an unusual question - and one that Statsguru turned out not to be much help with! Its more a question for ESPNcricinfos old Doppelgangers feature, I suppose. Chris Woakes certainly does look quite a bit like Eddie Redmayne, who won the Best Actor award in 2014 for his portrayal of scientist Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. I think the best thing is to throw the comments section open to suggestions about other Oscar lookalikes! The question did remind me of something Gideon Haigh wrote about Chris Lewis, in his tour book on the 1994-95 Ashes: His physique is magnificent - broad shoulders tapering to the thin waist - and as he approaches he resembles nothing so much as an Oscar.Send in your questions using our feedback form.

MINSK, Belarus -- The capital of Belarus was chosen Friday to host the 2019 European Games, despite criticism of the countrys human rights record and concerns over the cost of the event.The European Olympic Committees approved Minsk -- the only candidate -- by an overwhelming majority to host the second edition of the multi-sport games. The Netherlands withdrew as host last year, citing financial worries.Belarus is not a superpower but we pay a lot of attention to sports, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko told the EOC assembly before the vote. You can count on Belarus.Minsk was backed by a large majority of EOC assembly delegates despite objections from Norwegian and Danish representatives that the committee had rushed into picking Belarus without enough scrutiny.We dont know the concept or structure for the games. We dont know the financial consequences, Danish Olympic Committee general secretary Morten Moelholm Hansen told The Associated Press. The greatest worry now is that we take a decision that we dont know anything about.Lukashenko has been in power for more than 20 years in Belarus, a former Soviet republic where political opposition is tightly restricted. It is also the last country in Europe to use the death penalty.After criticism of last years inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan, on human rights grounds, EOC acting president Janez Kocijanic said there could be more of the same in Belarus in 2019.It might happen, of course, he told the AP. You know, we are living in the times of democracy. Everybody is entitled to have his own opinion. What I would like to emphasize is that sport can come into any country, bringing in elements of democracy and free air. From our point of view, we will use sport as a tool of democracy.The games in Baku involved lavish spending on new arenas and ceremonies, but failed to attract many top athletes. Belarus is focusing on quality over quantity.Kocijanic said the games would be a little bit more modest but normal, but an excellent games in terms of the level of competition. Belarus Olympic Committee general secretary Anatoly Kotoov said he expected to have between 10 and 15 sports on the program, compared to more than 20 last year.ddddddddddddWhether that will include swimming or track and field -- traditionally the two Olympic sports with the largest following -- is unclear. The European governing bodies for the two sports jealously guard the popularity of their own European championships, and have banded together to stage a joint event in 2018.In Baku, swimming was held as a junior competition and track and field as a team event.We want to see track and field but it must be competitions of the top division, qualifying for the Olympic Games, Kotov said. Its completely possible we may have to go without some track and field disciplines, to be sure of 100 percent top level. If we cant do that, well have to make some sacrifices ... Its the same situation with aquatic events.In his speech to the assembly, Belarusian president Lukashenko urged more events from the European Games to be made qualifiers for the Olympics in order to attract more top athletes and fans, a position shared by the EOC.Controlling spending is a key concern for Belarus, which is in recession and has asked the EOC and International Olympic Committee to provide financial support for the games, though it was not clear Friday whether that would be provided.Minsk would likely need to spend far less than Baku to host the games, having built or refurbished many sports venues in recent years. The Belarusian capital hosted the world track cycling championships in 2013 and world ice hockey championships a year later.After the Netherlands withdrew as host last year, Russia was the EOCs preferred backup choice for 2019. But Russia showed little interest in hosting the event, even before the IOC said the country was not an appropriate choice because of its doping scandals.Doping is also a possible area of concern for Belarus, which has a record of performance-enhancing drug use in ice hockey, weightlifting and track and field.
