    Cricket Trivia - Western Warrior Style

    I know there are already a few cricket trivia threads on this forum so will apologies for starting another one. However, I received this question in an email and it took me a few hours to figure it out. Hopefully you can do better than I

    Q. What do all players in this 'XI' have on common?

    1 Leonard Hutton (ENG) *
    2 Saeed Anwar (PAK)
    3 George E Tyldesley (ENG)
    4 Kenneth F Barrington (ENG)
    5 Martin P Donnelly (NZ)
    6 Marvan S Atapattu (SRL)
    7 Hashan P TillaKaratne (SRL) +
    8 Gerald E Gomez (WI)
    9 Ian R Bishop (WI)
    10 Frederick R Spofforth (AUS)
    11 Alexander G Cremer (ZIM)

    Quite a strong team I have to admit, though the bowling needs a little work.

    All of them failed to reach double figures in either innings of their first test match.

    Smart Alec!

    Ok!

    Here's one that should strain the mental muscles a bit more.

    Q - Who is primarily responsible for causing these rather average bowling figures?

    41 5 121 1
    49 5 136 2
    61 30 93 1
    39 8 109 2
    62 35 61 1
    57 25 94 1
    10 5 10 0

    No. The ducks answer is good enough, though its surprising how many failed to reach double figures in either innings too

    You are correct SJS, but SirBloodyIdiot just pipped you at the post.
