AOC big fat christmas quiz 2014
« on: December 13, 2014, 10:01:16 PM »

just wonder if anybody else was having a go at the quiz. ive managed to answer all but 2/3 of the questions if anybody has any ideas for the questions below that would be great or if anybody wants some help with theirs im happy to share answers

Which batsman/bowler combination has produced the most runs in Test cricket?

How many times did Glenn McGrath and Shane Warne share all 10 of the opposition wickets in a Test innings?

What did Sven Koenig in 2004 and Matt Prior in 2011 both achieve at Lord's?

Sven retired hurt after going to a hundred. Not sure if prior did though.

Did they both bring up their hundreds by hitting a boundary while batting with the Number 11??
I think Prior did from memory

Add that Sven bowled off spin.  And priors a stumper.  It has to be an achievement while batting.....

Unless fo course it's based on the window

My abiding memory is when given out at Lord's, Koenig ,on returning to the dressing room, threw his helmet at the window causing a member sitting below to be showered with glass. He came downstairs to apologise to the startled member.

I was just about to say 0 for mcgrath warne combo.  As I can't find zip that relates.


As for bowler batsmen.  I'm not sure what it even means.

 allrounder whos scored most runs
Batsmen/bowler together who's produced most runs?
Or batsmen vs bowler that produced most runs??

Such a badly written questions , and that's coming from me who's English is rubbish.
