    Cricket Statistics Quiz

    Now, it is for those who love cricket stats.

    1. Who took most number of wickets for England in the 50's?
    2. Which bowler playing more than 20 tests has the best strike rate in test cricket after World War 2?
    3. Which kiwi bowler took the most number of ODI wickets in the 5 years from '96 to '00?
    4. Who has scored most number of ODI runs for West Indies in the '90s after Lara and Hooper?
    5. Who am I? I bowled only 18 overs in test cricket...took 3 wickets for 47 runs for India...And after that didn't get any chance to bowl at test level.
    6. How many (if any) English batsmen scored more than 21 centuries in test cricket? Name them/him (if applicable).
    7. Who are the two West Indian captains captaining exactly in 22 test matches?
    8. Who am I? I took 2 test wickets at an average of 174.5. I also scored 13 ducks. And yes, you've assumed correctly, I also had the priviledge of captaining my side at test level.
    9. Who am I? I played more than 150 ODIs. My overall average in ODI is below 40 but my home average (in my country) in ODI is over 50.
    10. Who am I? My test average in '90s was 44.43 and that in ,00s is 53.21.

    For each of the questions 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7; first correct answer will get 1 mark, 2nd correct answer 0.9, 3rd correct answer 0.8 and so on.
    For each of the questions 5, 8, 9 and 10; first correct answer will get 1 mark and all the correct answers to follow will get 0.
    Searching and looking at others' answers are allowed .

    Come on, let the wild guesses flow.

    Points till now:-

    son of coco : 1
    *99 : 1.9
    Pup Clarke : 1.8

    A score of over 2.5 will be great I suppose. Every single first correct answer deserves an accolade.
