    The column is meant to be a homage/ripoff of Ask Steven on cricinfo. Whatever is becomes is something entirely open to your interpretation.

    A better way to write this question would have been- "If you tape a fighting cricket to a ceiling fan, then turn the fan on, will the cricket do better in subsequent fights?"

    Bradman's first class average was 95.14. I know that's not what you asked, but I have no ****ing idea to work out his first chance average. So providing some answer is better than nothing. Also, I have it on good authority that his first chance average in the sack with Lady Jessie was nearly as high as his overall average.

    I have a theory that at some point in the near future, every person in the world will be required to wear orange or yellow hi-vis clothing every time they move.

    The unladen swallow is really quick, unlike the binladen swallow, which can be caught unawares.

    An interesting question. Murali heads the list here with 6.02, and the next highest is Clarrie Grimmett on 5.84 wpm. Dale Steyn is prominent here as well, with a wpm ratio of 5.16, placing him above both Lillee and Hadlee.

    Another great question (actually, it's ****ing ridiculous, but we want a good vibe in here). Btw, it's Hadlee. If you think I'm wrong, prove it....

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with drinking in the morning, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    I'm pretty sure it'd be Bob Simpson with 56 innings before he made a ton. Then he made 311 runs in that innings.

    Never given out when opening, or never given out at all?
