    Question

    2 opposing captains in a test who had at least 2 exceptionally common things (may not have been necessarily present at the time of the Test)between them. Both illustrious in their own right !! One has a record that cannot be erased !! What is the record ? Who are they? Common things ?



    Q 1 Was the common thing their date of birth ? Yes

    Q 2 were they an Englishman and an Aussie ? Yes

    Q 3 Was the Englishman knighted later for his non-cricketing activities ? Yes

    Q 4 Did he serve in India ? Yes

    Tapioca " The Captains are Stanley Jackson and Joe Darling


    Q 5 Has the common record got something to do with captaincy ? No. (Please read the question carefully !! )

    Regarding his luck in winning the toss in those 1905 Tests , Jackson said that at Scarborough, when captain for the seventh time against the Australians: I found Darling stripped to the waist. He said, ‘Now we’ll have a proper tossing, and he who gets on top wins the toss.’ So I said to George Hirst, ‘Georgie, you come and toss this time.’ Darling then said, ‘All right, we’ll toss in the old-fashioned way!’ Again Jackson winning the toss.

    Q 6 Is the common thing something related to cricket ? No

    In 1927 he went out to India as Governor of Bengal. There he proved equal to the most trying situation, behaving with splendid nerve and authority when he nearly fell a victim to attempted assassination by a Calcutta girl student who fired five shots at close range, narrowly missing Sir Stanley when presiding at a meeting. His London home was bombed in 1940.

    Q 7 Something connected to their death ? No.

    (8) Darling hit the first six in test cricket in 1897-98. In those days they had to hit the ball out of the ground to get six runs. Is this the record ?

    Q 10 Did Darling hit the highest number of runs in a sub 6 (4 or 5) ball over ? No. ( I am not aware of it ) That is not the expected answer.

    Q 11 Aren't they Jackson and Darling ? Yes. (obviously another question intended to waste time and questions (being repetitive) )

    Since you are on the right track, I feel no reason to give any clues !! Let's try and finish this quickly please !!

    Jackson was member of parliament and Darling a member of the legislative assembly !! This is surely their common achievement post cricket ?

    Q 13 (posted by SJS tad ahead of Tapioca) Both were parliament members. Is that the one ? Yes (Congratulations you've worked out the common things ) Now What's the record ?

    He entered Parliament in 1915 and remained Unionist member for Howdenshire Division of Yorkshire until 1926. One day in the House of Commons dining room Mr. Winston Churchill, who had been his fag at Harrow, said, Let me introduce you to Mr. Lloyd George. There came a quick exclamation, I have been looking all my life for the man who gave Winston Churchill a hiding at school.

    When he wanted to make his maiden speech the debate went unfavourably, and he received a note from the Speaker: I have dropped you in the batting order; it’s sticky wicket. Then, at a better opportunity, he sent this hint: Get your pads on; you’re next in.
