Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
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.
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.
