    This is great! Stats geek like me, heaven.

    Got all 25 of the top run scorers though I probably needed about 30 names (kept putting modern players like Clarke, Sehwag, Pietersen and Younis in there...). And I admit I would never have picked Mark Waugh if it hadn't filled it in automatically when I went for his brother!

    Only missed Roy Gilchrist and Rowan in the bowling lists, though again one was an accident. Mitchell Johnson slipped my mind completely for 2009, but I tried Ian Johnson for 1961 and got lucky! Only got Davidson in the last ten seconds...

    Off to try CMJ's top 100 now. Don't you just love a quiet afternoon with the lad in front of a dvd...

    That was chastening. 82/100. Missed out Hammond... and Lillee... oops.

    On others, I am not in agreement with the learned CMJ. Pietersen at 60? WTF? Flintoff??

    I know it's sad but I know the list of Monarchs in order by memory. I did not have to make a guess.

    80/100 in CMJ

    Should have paid more attention to the countries. Did not notice 'Zimbabwe'!

    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.
    25/25 with 2.38 spare.

    I got 51/64 which I thought wasn't bad. Missed one or two obvious guys but also got a couple of odd ones you wouldn't normally think of.
    62/66 but would have been 63 with the inclusion of Venkat which I couldn't spell. Missed Rowan, Gilchrist and Higgs

    Harder than the other three IMO, only got 44/63.
    62/65. Missed McDonald, Redpath and Fletcher. Fluked Peter Richardson going for Richie Richardson though.

    I'm a proper cricket stats geek.

    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.

    Can you name the top 100 cricketers of all time according to Christopher Martin-Jenkins? by campion | Online Games & Trivia by Sporcle
    85, FTR.

    Absolutely shocking list IMO, but this isn't the thread to get into a deep discussion on the merits of CMJs list.

    Just discovered this, there's my day gone.

    Got 25/25 on the top Test runscorers. Stats geek heaven, could have filled in the run aggregates myself, for any of the retired players at least.

    64/65 for the top runscorers by year. Totally forgot Samaraweera - couldn't understand how I kept spelling Sangakkara, Jayawardene or Dilshan wrong.

    Will give the others a try.

    The main problem on this is spelling of some of the Asian players. Uses up way too much time.

    Since getting introduced to sporcle via this thread, I've been playing a lot of geography games on the site. It's addictive.

    25/25 for the triple centurions with 4:56 to spare.

    62/66 for the top wicket takers by year - though I'll admit I only got Roy Gilchrist because of a post earlier in the thread. I missed Titmus, Higgs, Arnold and Prasad.

    99/100 for the CMJ100. Thanks for ruining that perfect score for me Gilbert ****ing Jessop.

    Bump. Site is pretty addictive.

    Taking the tests -

    * Full marks for the "Top 27 run scorers of all time" and "batsman with triple tons" quizzes.
    * 57/66 for "most wickets taken in a calendar year". Some weird ones, some ones however I shouldn't have missed.
    * 59/65 for most runs scored. Would've been 60 but I couldn't spell one of the guy's names. A more obvious quiz, only one of the names I never heard of.
    * 76/100 for the CMJ thing. Missed a few obvious ones, but there were some weird names on the list.
    * 82/231 for the English quiz. Half of them I've never heard of, but there were a few obvious ones that flew over my head.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
