    That was a good one.

    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.

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