    Some freaky bowling analysis :-

    32-27-5-0

    India offie Nadkarni bowled 27 consecutive maidens in succession and establisehd a world record during the test between India and England in Madras 1964

    0-0-4-0

    John Kelly bowled his first ball a no ball which was hit for a four against Lancashire at Old Trafford in 1955

    1-1-0-0

    Not very unusual? In an unofficial test against the kiwis, J.H.Human bowled 6 wides each of which were hit for fours. The scoring sheet was indeed flattering.

    Jesus! I've seen some dull passages of play, but my God! You'd have to be a real connoisseur or a masochist to enjoy that!

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    That one was on specific incidents.

    This is cricket trivia. Not the same IMO.

    Coupla England skippers you coulda had too:

    JWHT Douglas AKA Johnny
    MJK Smith AKA Mike

    Apropos of nothing I know of two famous authors who’ve played FC cricket: creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (10 games for MCC, 231 runs @ 19.25, 1 wicket @ 50) & “Waiting For Godot” playwright Samuel Beckett, who played two FC games for Dublin University (both against Northants) where he scored 35 runs @ 8.75 & went wicketless for 64 runs. He also won the 1969 Nobel Prize for Literature, making him cricket’s only Nobel Laureate.

    Hmm, I must say I find this one doubtful...

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
