    Afraid not Hurricane.

    Clue: It was an Australian bowler who received the box of chewing gum as a gift. The fact that it was an entire box is significant!

    Merv Hughes gave it to Geoff Lawson after he had his jaw broken by Sir Ambi.

    Obviously a box of chewing gum is exactly what you need just after your jaw has been put back together again with screws and wire, and you're eating through a straw. For the macabre minded, here is the footage of Lawson being hit then carried off;

    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 had to read this a couple of times. So it is a non cricket sporting club and we have to guess the what the name of the club is?

    I would guess the sport would be AFL given so many cricketers play it - can you tell me if that guess is correct at least?

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    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.

    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.

    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.
