Milestones are key for any batsman as batters always eye centuries, double centuries, triple centuries and so on. However, sometimes the script does not go as expected and they lose their nerve in that tense moment as they miss a huge opportunity to score the milestone run.
Often we see players get out on 99 and hence miss their century, ultimately the 99 only counts as a half century in the stats. So is the case with 199 or 299 as they are looked with lesser prominence when a player’s career is viewed upon.
Here we look at the list of players who got out on 199 in a long 140-year history.
#1. Mudassar Nazar
The first player ever to get dismissed on 199 was Pakistan’s Mudassar Nazar who missed the opportunity while playing against India at Faisalabad in 1984.
