Retiring Twins

I'm not exactly very old, but can safely claim to have been following the game of cricket for about 15 years now. But this is the first occasion where I have seen both openers retiring hurt - In the current second test against Bangladesh, at the end of first day's play, India are well placed at 326/0 with both openers, Dinesh Karthik and Wasim Jaffer retired hurt. On crease are no.3 and no.4, captain and vice-captain, Dravid and Tendulkar. Does anyone else remember any precedent?

You're right, as cricinfo.com informed, first time in the 130 year history of Test cricket this happened..it took Mirpur to fall down both the openers...
