Very good guys-- the match lasted 10 days before it was abandonned because the English had to catch their boat back to England!  Nobody expected it to be that timeless!  Poor bowlers!  Take it away guys.

Looking at the scorecards, here is my hunch: In all the games, the first ball of the match was bowled by the captain of one team to the captain of the other.

Whew - I am *not* going to tell you how much time I spent on this prior to your hint.

Right!! applause

interestingly, there aren't many such occurances. only another 2-3 tests outside of my list (and most of them include pakistan, surpise, surprise!)

sorry if it was too vague and sent you on a wild goose chase but then look at all the interesting tidbits you must have picked up to torture us with!  ;D  ;D

To the best of my knowledge, 3 prime ministers / presidents of independent countries have actually played official first class cricket. (The "independent country" clause eliminates all the princes and Indian nobility).

One of them is Alec Douglas Home who served as PM of England between Oct 1963 and Oct 1964 (he played for MCC, Middlesex, Oxford, HDG Leveson-Gower's XI, Free Foresters and Harlequins, playing under the name "Lord Dunglass": his title at that time).

The other two are more interesting. One we have heard of, and is from a regular cricket playing country. The other, some might have heard of and he comes from a non-regular country which has played cricket for over 50 years. Name either.


P.S. When I did my homework on this one, I came across an Australian PM, Edmund Barton who was a good cricketer but did not play any official first-class matches. Perhaps the time he lived (1849-1920) was not helpful.  This is what his biography says: "In 1879, Barton umpired a cricket game at Sydney Cricket Ground between New South Wales and an English touring side captained by Lord Harris. After a controversial decision by Barton's fellow umpire, the crowd spilled onto the pitch, leading to international cricket's first riot. Barton helped to defuse the situation, and gained much favourable publicity for his efforts, which helped him politically; Barton successfully stood for the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales for the University of Sydney constituency later in the year. In 1882 he became Speaker of the assembly, and in 1884 was elected President of the University of Sydney Union. From 1887 to 1891, and again from 1897 to 1898, Barton sat in the Legislative Council."

That has got to be the record for the fastest answer - applause!

Yes, he played for Pakistan Railways in 1973-74. Has a CricInfo profile, for what it is worth: http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/pakistan/content/player/42259.html

The other is Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara from Fiji: http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/other/content/player/24061.html

No inoc, at least not what I had in mind, which is a little more significant. I guess it comes down to identifying who is in the picture -- it is a player, not an umpire/official and it has to be 1 of 22 guys. Now that is virtually the answer if you think about it ;D

pieterSAN is right - Geoff Greenidge's last match, and he was the last white person to play for the WI. Both Charlie Davis and Larry Gomes are not 100% white, (so too Jeff Dujon and I am sure many others with some mixed Hispanic lineage). Greenidge's CricInfo profile also has him as the last white person who played for the WI.

Take it over, pieterSAN.

Thanks, kop.

good effort inoc - must admit that Charlie Davis does somewhat resemble Geoff Greenidge.

 ;D ;D right...This should be easy.

This man was made his debut for England at the age of 34 and made over 2000 runs for England. His name is synonymous with one of the greatest controversies in the game. Name him.
