    Q11: No.

    Another clue to hopefully wrap things up: The last man to perform this feat once was Darren Gough.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Yep. That's the one. Hugh was the only man to take two hat-tricks in Ashes tests.

    You get to ask that Q after all!

    Thanks BB, this should be a hard one, but with the yes/no format should not last too long

    Q. What is this thing?

    This thing was removed from the game of cricket between the years 1774-1816, but was re-introduced in 1817 and has been part of cricket ever since

    The first thing that came into my head as well.

    Does it occur after play is started?

    Out of curiosity, what replaced the toss as a means of deciding who batted/fielded first?

    Yea, I'd want to know that too. One of my annoyances with cricket is that the toss has too much bearing on the outcome of a game. But I've no idea how to replace it (other than having the visiting team always pick whether to bowl or bat first).

    That is the way they did it for those years I mentioned

    Some may know this straight away and maybe it is not the best question for this format but I always found this question from my old Umpire exam interesting and funny.

    The Striker hits a 'No-Ball' into the field of play and as it nears the boundary, a player who is waiting for permission to return to the field, races onto the ground and fields the ball, thus saving a boundary 4 from being scored. He then throws the ball in hard to the wicket keeper who misses it. The ball runs over the boundary on the opposite side of the ground. At the instant the player fielded the ball, the batsmen had crossed on their third run.

    a) How many runs in total are scored?

    b) What reasoning did you use to calculate this?

    c) How are they entered in the Scoring Record?

    A) 8
    B) 5 penalty runs + 3 they've run The ball is dead when the illegal fielder touches the ball, right?
