    Q4 is it the lowest ever test score in a completed innings? NO
    Q5 Is it the average score per wicket in all test cricket? NO
    Q6 Is it the number of deliveries faced in an innings of some sort? NO
    Q7 Most runs off one over? NO
    Q8 Is it a series? Thats to say a number of test innings without this or that etc NO
    Q9 does it have to do with the number of test matches without a century or a double century? NO

    I'll add to my earlier clue - It's the opposite of 952

    Should be a cinch now!
    Okay so it has something to do with the highest ever innings score which was 952 for 6 by Sri Lanka in a drwan game against India in which only 14 wickets fell !!

    No 32 here !!

    That's right!!!

    32 is the lowest score at which a Test match innings has been declared - by Australia against England at Brisbane in 1950.

    England had done exceptionally well to dismiss Australia on a good batting surface for 228. Rain, which prevented play on the second day, turned the pitch into an unplayable 'sticky' and 20 wickets fell for 102 runs after lunch on the third day.

    England declared at 68-7 and Australia countered by closing their second innings at 32-7. Reduced to 30-6 at stumps, England, thanks to a remarkable and undefeated 62 by Len Hutton, made 122 but still lost by 70 runs.

    Compton and Hutton must be the best 8 and 9 ever!
