Kirket Trivia

  • Who has taken the most caught-and-bowled in Tests and one-day internationals?

    The new leader is Anil Kumble, with 21. He's just gone past England's Derek Underwood (20), but Muttiah Muralitharan isn't far behind, with 19. Shane Warne and Richie Benaud, a handy pair of Aussie legspinners, both took 17 return catches, while the offspinners Lance Gibbs (West Indies) and Hugh Trumble (Australia) had 15 apiece. In one-dayers Chris Harris of New Zealand is well clear of the field with 29 c&bs. Murali is second with 21, one ahead of Saqlain Mushtaq.

  • Did you know?

    Kepler Wessels is the only man to play official one-dayers for two different countries - he played 54 for Australia between 1982-83 and 1985, scoring 1740 runs at 36.25, including his only ODI century, 107 against India at Delhi in 1984-85. He then returned to his native South Africa and, after they were readmitted to international cricket, played 55 more one-dayers for them, scoring 1627 runs at 32.54. Wessels is also the only person to score Test centuries and score over 1000 Test runs for two different countries.

    In the 1909 Ashes series in England no fewer than ten different bowlers took five-fors - Sydney Barnes, Colin Blythe, Douglas Carr, George Hirst, Bert Relf and Wilfred Rhodes for England, and Warwick Armstrong, "Tibby" Cotter, Frank Laver and Charlie Macartney for Australia. In the 1951-52 Australia-West Indies series nine different men managed it - Gerry Gomez, Sonny Ramadhin, John Trim, Alf Valentine and Frank Worrell for West Indies, and Bill Johnston, Ray Lindwall, Keith Miller and Doug Ring for the Aussies. And there are six instances of eight different bowlers doing it, in the following series: Australia v England 1884-85, England v Australia 1905, Australia v England 1936-37, Pakistan v India 1954-55, England v Australia 1997, and Australia v England 1998-99
