Hint.

The actor who starred in the TV miniseries was also seen in the Matrix (in a significant role) and Lord of the Rings.

Hugo Weaving, but no idea how he is related to cricket :(

here's one Q i came across at some other place but it captured my fancy a lot and so am repeating it here.

He is a first-class cricketer who played for MCC. In 1899, he took 7/61 in a match and a couple of years later he carried his bat in an innings. Below is a picture of his statue erected at Edinburgh, his birth place. He went on to become incredibly famous in another field and not so much in cricket.

MT:
I researched it a little..

1. The statue is of Sherlock Holmes (his famous character)..
--
Sherlock Holmes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Statue
The Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Memorial consists of a 1 1/4 life-size bronze pedestrian statue of Sherlock Holmes on a 6 foot high sandstone plinth. Conan Doyle was born in Picardy Place.

Holmes, the famous literary detective, is shown meditating on the death of his author. His pipe has the words 'Ceci n'est pas une pipe' in homage to the surrealist Magritte and there is a footprint of the Hound of the Baskervilles on the bronze pedestal.

Money for the sculpture was raised by a variety of means including a ticketed amateur boxing match which took place in a pub.

It was sculpted and cast by Gerald Ogilvie Laing at Kinkell Castle in Sutherland in 1989.
--
2. And the player you describe is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle(the author)..
--
Wisden obituary
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, MD (Edin), the well-known author, born at Edinburgh on May 22, 1859, died at Crowborough, Sussex, on July 7, aged 71. Although never a famous cricketer, he could hit hard and bowl slows with a puzzling flight. For MCC v Cambridgeshire at Lord's, in 1899, he took seven wickets for 61 runs, and on the same ground two years later carried out his bat for 32 against Leicestershire, who had Woodcock, Geeson and King to bowl for them. In the Times of October 27, 1915, he was the author of an article on The Greatest of Cricketers - An Appreciation of Dr Grace. (It is said that Shacklock, the former Nottinghamshire player, inspired him with the Christian name of his famous character, Sherlock Holmes, and that of the latter's brother Mycroft was suggested by the Derbyshire cricketers.

The answer credit should go to KC1432

Hehe, I must be getting good , even my snide remarks hit close to the target ;)

Seriously though ,was Sherlock Holmes physically modelled along Conan Doyle ? Mock says its 'his statue ' but I thought Conan Doyle conceived this character based on a friend of his .

The son of this professional cricketer is in the baseball hall of fame.

There maybe many answers to this one..but I am looking for one specific name. If I dont get that name then I will give another hint in an hour.

--
Ok. 2 of this professional cricketer's sons are in the baseball hall of fame and a third son played baseball professionally.

--

Sorry, if this is un-interesting..but the cricket->baseball link is fascinating to me (hint!).

You got it. Applause.

The Cincinnati Red Stockings, the first professional baseball team assembled and managed by Harry Wright. His brother George is also in the Hall of fame. Sam the other brother played professional baseball too.

Sorry, I am a big Cubs(long-suffering) and then White Sox(I think they in all likelihood are out of playoff contention this year given their loss to Tigers today)  fan.

Over to you.

as we wait and wonder what conundrum God is going to test us with, here's one from me. alll this talk about jinx and lucky charms reminded me of this :

who is the player who always stuck to the following routine

- make sure he looked towards the sun as he went out to bat
- put on his left pad first
- walked on the right side of his partner as he went out to bat.

and another bit of trivia :

india in a bit of bother. pretty much the last man(men?) standing out there. the team manager commands ALL the players to not budge from their current position. and thus they remained for the next 2 hours, no bathroom breaks, no moving around, and the ones who had just stepped out to the balcony couldn't come in, despite a cold draft blowing. well, india wins! what match was this?

as we wait and wonder what conundrum God is going to test us with, here's one from me. alll this talk about jinx and lucky charms reminded me of this :

who is the player who always stuck to the following routine

- make sure he looked towards the sun as he went out to bat
- put on his left pad first
- walked on the right side of his partner as he went out to bat.

if it is Cheeka,
Mooku uriyarathe maranthu theenga
most of the times took a short stroll towards square leg after a delivery is bowled. There was a rumour that he used to say Gayathri mantra after every delivery.

it is cheeka - was the sniffing part of "superstition" or just a chronic allergy issue? anyway, didn't know abt that

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar

and

Natwest Final (I think)

LN, checked on the facts again and you are probably right about not having a balcony at the Zimb match. the article i read says "outside the dressing room". was typing from memory and i changed it to "balcony". sorry!

also, i was thinking of Cheeka but wasn't aware that SRT ALSO has the same set of superstitions...

applause.
