    Rumour has it he walked up to Greg Chappell in his first test and asked him what size shoe he wore, didn’t help him a few years later when Chappell became a selector.

    Of the bowlers with 100 wickets in ashes tests, who has the best average? What is the average and his best figures?

    I’m guessing Lohman from England, think he just got 100 wickets and I think all his games were against Aus. His average was something silly like 13 or 14.

    If not him Syd Barnes also a Pom.

    AKA Terror Turner.

    Widely regarded as one of the best pre-20th century fast bowlers, but some estimates suggest he barely got it above 100kph. Shows you how deadly it was to bat on an uncovered pitch if you were up against a skilled bowler.

    Gotta say, if you don't want people to google the answer you have to come up with a ungoogable question.

    Perhaps give Das Gupta the benefit of the doubt. He could have an extremely good memory.

    Not your bad, the best trivia questions are the ones that have a bit of a twist or if you use google you have to do some digging
