    2. A record:
    3. Something important:
    4. Something interesting: 229 is the score South Africa incorrectly calculated as their winning margin when they were eliminated from the 2003 World Cup
    5. Something else: 229 is the lowest score never to be made by a batsman in a completed test innings


    20 QUESTIONS
    Question 1: Ferd: Is it over 250? NO
    Question 2: SJS: Is it 229, The lowest score yet to be scored by any batsman in tests ? YES

    However it is important in more ways than this. Name 3 of the 4...
    Clue #1: Of the three remaining, one is a record, one is important and one is interesting


    Question 3: SJS: is the one which is a record a batting record ? YES
    Question 4: SJS: Is it the Highest number of runs conseded by a Kiwi bowler in a test. 1 for 229 in 70 overs by SL Boock vs Pakistan in 1988-89? NO, not one of the ones I was thinking of

    Sorry to Cricketweb users for hogging up this space, but forgive me, but we'll shut this ****hole of a question for once and for all.

    229 was the score that Bangladesh scored in their first win on home soil against Inida, which also happened to be their 100th ODI.

    Bookie has ever-so eloquently identified the Important (with some help via MSN).
    If anyone wants a go at the record (It's the easiest of the lot) do it now otherwise I'll post the answer.

    QUESTION (fairly easy with a bit of researching): What is the common factor between Andrew Zesers, Kim Barnett, and Pankaj Dharmani?

    Clue (as for now), and you probably wont need any more: ODI's
