It’s 2017 and Sportzwiki wishes its readers a very Happy New Year. On January 2nd, the day when the greatest leg-spinner and perhaps the second greatest spinner of all time made his debut in 1992. This day also reminds everyone of Australia’s Fred Spofforth, who in 1882 created a record which has been labelled as a benchmark for bowlers to achieve across formats, a hat-trick.

With such rich history registered on this day, how can an Indian be far from creating a record? This day in 1978, one of India’s finest batsman Sunil Gavaskar scored twin centuries in a Test match against West Indies and marched his way into record books.

It’s time to have a look at the major events that happened on January 2nd over the years.
