    Cricket Guru title challenge

    I thought of an interesting game. I will ask a question on cricket and the first person to answer it correctly gets the title of 'Cricket Guru of Cricket Web' The person with title of 'Cricket Guru' will have to ask another question in return soon enough (within 24 hours else he concedes the title to the previous winner!). This can work great I hope.

    So I declare myself 'Cricket Guru of Cricket Web' till any one can answer this question correctly -

    'Adrian Kuiper was the first South African in South African cricket history to achieve which cricketing feat?'

    (pretty tough question coz I dont want to concede my title 'that' easily )

    He did play in the inaugral one dayer for South Africa vs India in the Eden Gardens. But he did not bat number one. He batter number 5. So thats not the cricketing feat I am talking about

    He was the first player to hit three sixes off the last two balls of a one-day international (off McDermott, I think) - note I said 3 sixes off 2 balls

    I know it's not right but I remember that (ex-Derbyshire player)
    Nigel Clough's Black and White Army, beating Forest away with 10 men

    Hit a six in ODI's for South Africa.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Mr Mxyzptlk that was awesome. I was thinking I will have to change the question to an easy one coz no one would get the right answer. Kuiper was the first batsman in South African cricket history to hit a six in one day internationals.

    So you are now the official Cricket Guru of Cricket Web

    Ask a question soon and I cant wait to take the title away from you .

    How many runs did Conrad Hunte take off Fred Trueman's first over of the 2nd Test match at Lord's in 1963 between the West Indies and England?

    Is it score 26 in an over in an ODI?

    Or is it to score a century in under 50 balls?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
