    Cricket Q&A

    Pretty simple really.. If you have a question about cricket and you want it answered.. post it here instead of making a thread for it..

    I am sure if people need a question answered they will be able to find out the answer with either a little bit of research, asking around some members or posting in a related thread. If they don't know the answer after all that, then it's fair enough if they open a thread.

    Harsh of you to instantly dismiss Piper's idea as "crap" particularly when it's actually quite a good idea considering the amount of actual "crap" threads that are started asking silly questions

    But I doubt that Amanda and her holiday in Spain would have found itself a home in this thread, I'm sorry to say. The more talk about libertarianism the better to my mind.

    Nah, decent idea for a thread imo. I'm sure people sometimes have queries about rules etc and a thread like this could prove useful.

    Okay first question I guess..
    Who has the highest score for their first test? And what was their average when they finished (or at the moment if they are still playing)?

    It was also the highest ever test score till then and stood as a record for a test innings till Andy Sandham scored cricket's first triple century more than a quarter of a century later !

    It was like someone coming along and scoring 401 on debut today to get past Lara. Cant imagine what kind of a sensation it must have created.

    Oh really? Can't see that happening for a long long time.. Maybe even never!
    Maybe if we have a player who is part KP/Richards/Ponting/Kallis/Bradman..

    Well... except that the players in that Sandham game didn't, at the time, think they were playing Test cricket.

    Eric Hollies bowled Bradman in his last test innings. Over or around the wicket?
