    Not what I have but the source I looked up might not be definitive. Can you give me a year? (If its post 1800 it isn't St. George's).

    Launceston 1851, TAS v VIC was the first official game in Australia. But that's probably not the answer because it will be somewhere tricky like Philadelphia, or perhaps a Welsh village with an unpronounceable name containing the entire alphabet times two.

    Not Welsh and not unpronounceable. A very economical 7 letters split over two words. You don't have to cross the ocean to get to this ground from England. I'm going for a walk now. Will be about half an hour. I'll think of another clue and post it when I get back if the right answer isn't given.

    Think Scotland and the 1780s. I found the place in a well known archive

    Sorry i didn't mean to kill the thread. The 1st recorded game outside England occured at The Arns, Alloa according to cricketarchive, in 1785. There the Hon Col Talbot's XI smited the Duke of Atholl's XI by 94 runs. I would have suspected the result to be engineered to flatter the social hierarchy of the times but unless Talbot ranks the Duke that didn't happen. In fact the Duke (who opened the batting and the bowling) had his stumps scattered by the lowly Meares in his second inning for a duck. The Duke's XI also had the Earl of Winchilsea playing for them. No doubt being groomed as a future captain.

    Since Watson came closest I'll hand over the next question to him.

    OK then.

    Which batsman practiced his shots nude in front of the mirror prior to a big match?

    Post-2000, Warne has the highest number of away wickets at 226, Murali is third with 201, the second naturally is the quick with the highest number of away wickets in the period and the only one with 200+ away wickets.

    Who is this pacer?

    McGrath is the obvious answer so presumably not him

    Steyn?

    Took 2/3 of his wickets away from home? Weirdo.
