    Weird. I was dead sure he was stumped in a test against Pakistan a couple of years back.

    Edit: Turns out it was an ODI.

    Don't know why I remembered that dismissal at all.

    Denis the only non-Tyke? Or is that too easy?

    Meanwhile:

    Cholera
    Typhoid
    Psoriasis
    Giles Clarke
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    - Simon Barnes renders further comment on KP's autobiography superfluous in a sentence

    Ooo, partial credit. You picked the right one, but for the wrong reason.

    Psoriasis is a condition, whereas, of course, the other three are diseases.

    OK no-one's getting close. It has to do with retiring.

    It's because you included only 3 players in the question like a heathen

    Mahela the only one who won his last match?

    Greenidge run out in his final innings?

    Greenidge the only one not to retire out against Bangladesh?

    Jayawardene the only one to have never retired not out?

    Ok this hasn't gone particularly well. (edit - Marcuss getting v close).

    They are the only three players to have retired (unhurt) in Tests. Greenidge the odd man out because he wasn't deemed to be out - he had left the match to see his ill daughter in hospital.

    Does it have something to do with homeopathy?
