Q: What is the fewest number of wickets lost by a Test side which subsequently lost the Test?

A :South Africa were 248 for 8 declared in the first-innings, then forfeited their second innings, in the infamous "Cronje's Test" (at Centurion Park) in 1999/2000.
Q: What is Kevin Pietersen's ODI jersey number?

A: In recent times Pietersen has worn 24.
Q: I intend to know the latest position of total runs scored by the following cricket player individually in ICC Test cricket: 1. B. Lara of West Indies; 2. S. Tendulkar of India.

A: Lara notched 11,954; Tendulkar stands on 12,027 going into his probable second-innings against Australia at Mohali.
Q: How many times has a batsman been run out on 99 in Tests?

A: This has happened on 13 occasions, most recently by Neil McKenzie for South Africa against Australia at Newlands in 2001/02.
Q: Continuing the subject of unlucky run-outs, has anyone been run out for 199 more than once?

A: Unbelievably, this happened to Jason Gallian twice in the same County Championship season for Notts in 2005, first vs. Sussex in April then vs. Kent in September. No-one else has been run out for 199 more than once.
Q: Has a bowler who has taken a Test hat-trick also been a victim for another bowler?s Test hat-trick?

A: This has happened three times: Nuwan Zoysa (one of Mohammed Sami?s victims); Darren Gough (one of Shane Warne?s victims); and Warne himself (who fell victim to Harbhajan Singh).
