    And see how many you get. I missed out on one in the time available; bagging 24/25.

    Not a bad site all in all either.
    Got 22/25, and missed Cowdrey, Mark Taylor and... stupidly enough... Viv Richards.

    Brilliant site, huge timewaster.

    24/25, missed Cowdrey,
    20/23 Triple Centurians, missed Simpson, Cowper and an English bloke.
    55/64 on the leading wicket takers which I was well proud of.

    23/25, but should've been 24 because I couldn't spell Jayawardene successfully enough for the site to accept it.

    Missed out on Mark Waugh. Afghanistan, indeed.

    EDIT: 22/23 on the triples; missed Cowper

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Harder than the other three IMO, only got 44/63.
    Scored 44 as well. Got every year since I've been alive (other than 1987!) and then got a few easy older ones

    I'm not sure how- if you just type Waugh into the box you get both players.

    CMJ's top 100 cricketers of all time.

    Got 86, missed one or two through spelling. I think it's a few years old but it's a bit like life, good for passing the time.

    74/100 here, though also missed out on a couple due to spelling.
