I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

ML Jaishima was the first player out of the historical seven to bat all five days of the test match. This test match was in 1959-1960 against Australia at Calcutta. Jaishima is one of the seven cricketers to be posthumously honored by the BCCI. He was quite handsome, and everything he did cause notice. His first tests did not have an excellent finish; however, that one match brought him the fame of being the first batsman to hit the five mark.

He was born in 1939 and died in 1999 and had two sons who were also fantastic cricketers. Jaishima's achievement of batting on all five days has since been emulated by Geoff Boycott, Kim Hughes, Allan Lamb, Ravi Shastri, Adrian Griffith, Andrew Flintoff, Alviro Petersen, and Cheteshwar Pujara.
