5 entries so far, you guys can do better.
Done, but I didn't really know many for sure.
Sledging quiz is still open until the start of play.
Team Challenge Day 1
We're looking for the names of batsmen who have scored centuries in Ashes battles at Adelaide Oval down the years.
Same rules as last time apply, each person is limited to 5 guesses.
All answers to email@example.com. Time limit is until close of play.
Scores on the doors:
1. The Sean - 17
2. Marcuss - 7
3. Dan - 14
4. fredfertang - 14
5. flibbertyjibber - 13
6. Neil Pickup - 12
7=. four_or_six - 11
7=. Pothas - 11
9. zaremba - 7
10. GIMH - 6
The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that there's a tie for 1st and 3rd positions, however both Marcuss and fredfertang neglected to send in a tie-breaker of any kind. Having said that, in my opinion Sean's "you know who I always liked? Simon Katich" was the best entry anyway.

Team Challenge, Day 1
A list of the 55 batsmen to have tonned up at Adelaide can be found here: Batting records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo
Australia correctly identified Slater, Boon, Jackson, Ponting, Bradman, Greg Chappell, Clarke, Mark Waugh, Lawry, Simpson, Chris Broad, Hammond and Collingwood for a total of 13.
England correctly identified Collingwood, Pietersen, Hammond, Cook, Hobbs, Hutton, Boycott, Edrich, Compton, Bradman, Langer, Ponting, Harvey and Greg Chappell for a total of 14.
Therefore, England take the point for day 1.
Team Challenge, Day 2
In this Test, England have opted to field two spinners. So in honour of this decision, we're looking for the names of spinners to have taken 5-fors in Ashes tests played at Adelaide Oval.
