    CW Cricket Weekly Quiz Thread

    In a blatant rip off of the thread in Off Topic.

    These questions are cricket related and the same rules apply. No cheating, google, wiki, looking at the answers posted by others etc.

    1. Of these three, who has the highest Test batting average? George Headley, Sir Garry Sobers or Herbert Sutcliffe
    2. In what city is Newlands cricket ground located?
    3. Which Test cricketer was born in Kundiawa, Papua New Guinea?
    4. Who is this cricketer? I have taken 383 wickets at average 28.40
    5. Who were the 2 captains in the 2007 cricket World Cup final?
    6. From what wood is a cricket bat made from?
    7. In what year was the first ever Test match?
    8. Which team won the first mens Cricket World Cup?
    9. Who has scored the most ODI runs?
    10. Who were the opponents of Zimbabwe in their first Test match?

    If the questions are too easy Ill make them harder next time. Same goes for if they are too hard.

    Honestly though, Im expecting a few 10 out of 10s here, though its tough to get all correct.

    Good luck

    Hmm, what do you mean by Q5. Seems a bit generic. Do you mean the final, or the new captains, or what?

    1. I know its Sutcliffe or Headley, Sobers has his around 57, and I know both Headley and Sutcliffe have 60.xx. No clue whose is higher, I'm going to take a guess on Headley.

    2. Cape Town, I remember that Test.

    3. Haha, Geraint Jones, that's just pure luck because I was comparing various English keepers just yesterday and I saw it. I would not have guessed this just two days ago.

    4. That I know - Beefy the awesome.

    5. Ponting and Jayawardane (he was the captain back then? Don't remember 100%)

    6. English willow - it used to be made out of red willow before the 30s I think.

    7. 1877 - Alfred Shaw to Charles Bannerman the first delivery

    8. WI of course

    9. Tendulkar

    10. No idea - I'm going to guess England.
