Dean Jones is often seen sharing commentary session with Scott Styris trolled the former New-Zealand all-rounder after the ICC shared an interesting trivia about him with the fans.
The ICC on Monday took to twitter to share an interesting trivia with fans. ICC shared a picture of the former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris & pointed that Styris comes in an elite list of players who have scored a century on test debut batting at No 8. The ICC further stated that only selected nine players have been able to achieve this feat so far & out of those four are from New Zealand Cricket’s World governing body. ICC further made its post interactive by aksing the fans to name the other three players who achieved this feat.
“Of the nine hundreds scored by players batting at No.8 on Test debut, four have been scored for New Zealand. One was scored by Scott Styris #OnThisDay in 2002, but can you name the other three Kiwis to have achieved the feat?” tweeted ICC, sharing a picture of Scott Styris celebrating his maiden Test century.
Dean Jones is a former Australian player who is often seen commenting in partnership with Styris used this golden opportunity to troll the former New-Zealand all-rounder. On ICC’s post Jones tried to take a hilarious dig on Styris by commenting, “”@scottbstyris were they bowling beach balls?”.
Talking about Scott Styris career, he made his test debut against West Indies at St George’s Grenada on June 29, 2002. Scott Styris remained unbeaten on 107, helping New Zealand put up 373 runs in their first innings & he was top scorer for New-Zealand in the first innings.
Despite of such an outstanding start of Test career Styris could never settle himself into New Zealand’s longest format squad.
