    Could you tell me any good book/website about the history of Cricket laws (why bending arm in bowling is illegal, etc)?

    I've had the lecture a thousand times thanks. Seriously theres a massive article on the history of the rules somewhere, and even if only 70% of it is correct you will still learn a massive amount

    Wikipedia is generally reliable. History of cricket laws info doesn't need a peer review.

    Ironically, wikipedia is perhaps the poster boy for peer review. It's just that you can't trust your own peers in a non-professional setting.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Wikipedia is great for stealing citations.

    Could you tell me the average age of retirement of good Batsmen?
    ICC should establish a new annual prize "Ten Dollar Carl Trophy" for the best Batsman of the year.

    I'm afraid, Loko, that all the evidence suggests that we can't tell you anything at all.

    WARNING: The above statement has not been peer reviewed.

    I am not going to do any calculations on stats guru for you - but would say the mode is 31.

    Some of the very good batsman go past 35 but you said good batsman.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
