    That was a good one.

    You're halfway there. double hundreds and what?
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    Nope. Hint for this one is run outs.

    Dammit, I was sure this one was to do with homeopathy. None of the previous ones were, and it just felt like it was homeopathy's turn.

    yeah i was going with lara the only one to score a double ton in a non-losing clause but it turned out flower saved that match
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Atherton was run out for 99 at Lord's in 1993. Something to do with being run out just short of a landmark?
