    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Thanks for playing 1/10 - I will comment that although I said I wouldn't comment on individual answers - I will say that I wanted more detail than "caught Hadlee" for the how was Hilditch dismissed.

    Doesn't look like we'll get any more entries so the ones you missed were
    Jones batted at 6 iirc they played around with the batting order to give the other guys a bat and it backfired.

    Boycott's SR was 32 in that game.

    I'm surprised there are 10 pro-NZ cricketing facts available to make up this quiz.

    My next quiz will be negative facts about Australian Fast bowlers

    Expect such beauts as

    Who did Merv Hughes spit on?
    Which English Cricketer did Merv verbally assault on the grounds he was good.
    How many four letter words did McDermott average per over?

    Why do you think I would find the thought of such a quiz in anyway an insult?

    Don't worry, you are not the only one who needs to work on that.
