CRICKET QUIZ #3
Good evening! The memorial day weekend is now upon us. Hope all of you have a fantastic weekend.
The topic of my quiz today is Australian cricket icons:
I begin with my apologies to the English people here. This cartoon was quite irresistible :
Friends the rivalry between England and Australia is well known, so, I suspect that the person who composed this cartoon must have been an Australian. Would the English users care to comment on this cartoon (as a repartee).
What is the claim to fame for this cricket bat?
To who did this cricketer say :"Tickets please" and why? (1991 AT)
Who devised a plan to get this cricketer out? What was it called? Was the plan successful? If you know how this cricketer countered the plan--it will be an added bonus
Who is this Australian cricket icon? Although he can be seen wearing non-cricketing gloves, the question to you is: What was the controversy surrounding his gloves? Which hand was he wearing it?
First correct response by
DingDong: (Great answer !)
Hello Rehman offfff Muuuuuuultaaannnnnnn....
I would choose the following as Australian Cricket icons:
1. Don Bradman: He is a cricket icon period! An average of 99.9 over 52 test matches may never be matched. He is not just an aussie icon but a world icon.
2. Greg Chappell: Can be considered as the most complete Aussie batter of his era. Ever reliable in tests and much more attacking than usual in ODIs for his era.
3. Shane Warne: Not just because of his record number of wickets but because of his immense stature! He brought magic to every game he played in and he was a real drama-queen off the field. Also was the best Aussie captain Australia never had.
1. What is the claim to fame for this cricket bat?
That is the famous Dennis Lillee Aluminum bat!!! He used it in a test match but was ordered to stop using it before he threw it with anger!
2. To who did this cricketer say :"Tickets please" and why? (1991 AT)
He said it to Pakistani batter Javed Miandad. Javed called him a fatty and a bus conductor and Hughes got him out and shouted "ticketsplease!!"
3. Who devised a plan to get this cricketer out? What was it called? Was the plan successful? If you know how this cricketer countered the plan--it will be an added bonus
This cricketer is the great Don Bradman and it was England captain Douglas Jardine who devised this plan -called BODYLINE. He had some help from Larwood, his fast bowler to devise this plan.
The plan was kind of successful though not completely. Bradman countered it by moving towards leg and punching the ball to off.
4. That is Gilly!!
He used the squash ball in his gloves during the WC! And he also scored a 100 using this tactic. He put the ball in his left glove.
