I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER
Merv Hughes gave it to Geoff Lawson after he had his jaw broken by Sir Ambi.
Over to you SS......

Which sporting club was represented by four Australian Test captains in a sport other than cricket?
Clue #1: 3 out of the 4 test captains who represented this sporting club represented other States in cricket, from where this club is located.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone 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.
My original thought was whatever the Chappell's baseball club was. Henley?
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
Not Aussie Rules. Not Henley.
Firstly a correction -- 5 Australian Test Captains played for this club (not 4 as previously stated). Apologies but i don't think that deceived anyone.
Clue #2: One of the test captains has been quoted as saying he was better at this sport than cricket.
Can you elaborate?
The answer is indeed Mosman Baseball club who included the following Test captains as part of their alumni:
• Richie Benaud
• Ian Chappell
• Greg Chappell
• Allan Border (to whom the quote in Clue #2 is attributed).
• Ian Craig
As well as:
• Neil Harvey
• Graham Hole
• Gordon F Rorke
• David Sincock
• Bill Johnston (where he broke the the Australian record for the longest throw in 1945 (121m).
As well as Ken Irvine (Australian rugby league great)
You're up tbb.
Which ground hosted the first recorded game outside England? (If you have a different answer to mine that could reflect that I haven't been able to check all the records before posting the question or you have something to tell the game's historians).
Checked the records and I can't find an earlier instance of a ground outside England hosting a game of cricket.
