    Marnus Labuschagne on course to be Australia greatest test match batsman

    Just think: he's probably less than half way through his Test career. Projecting forwards then, we can expect him to have achieved an average rating of ~2000 by the time he's done.

    Geoffrey Boycott vs Younis Khan

    Two players whose legacies are forever entwined. It is impossible for someone to think of Younis without also thinking of Geoffrey, and vice versa.

    How many grounds have you watched cricket at?

    I think just 4. Mostly Edgbaston and Headingley, with a couple of trips each to Trent Bridge and The Oval.

    Already guessed: A: Alec Stewart B: Flower C: Wade D: Jonny Bairstow E: AB de Villiers F: Chandimal G: Kumar Sangakkara J: Buttler Assuming those are correct it leaves an Indian and a West Indian for H & I. H looks like Shai Hope Could I be Karthik? If not I'm struggling for ideas.

    Sachin Tendulkar vs Jacques Kallis

    Mahela Jayawardene vs Aravinda de Silva

    To be fair to Himann, if a world famous sportsman spat at you (I mean literally, spat in your face!) when you asked for their autograph, you'd probably hold a grudge too.

    *Official* South Africa vs West Indies in SA 2023

    To be fair he's showed a marked improvement with the bat Test-to-Test so far in his captaincy...
