Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|In the same match, Junior Murray scored his only test century for the West Indies - 101 not out. What else was special about that innings?||West Indies Cricket
It came from only 88 balls. It turned out to be quite a match for the West Indies. Other than the aforementioned feats by Walsh and Murray, Brian Lara (147) and Jimmy Adams (151) shared in a partnership of 221. The West Indies won by a massive margin - an innings and 322 runs!
|Against which nation did Courtney Walsh take his highest innings wicket haul (7 for 37)?||West Indies Cricket
New Zealand. Walsh took his best innings figures when the West Indies played New Zealand in Wellington in 1995. Not only did he take 7-37 in the first innings, but in the second he took 6-18, giving him unbelievable figures of 13-55 for the match!
India. When he debuted in Bombay in 1987, Hooper had unbelievable potential as a cricketer. While he'll still be remembered as a cricketing great, it is fair to say that he underachieved in his career - a batting average of just over 36 and a bowling average of 49 does not do him justice. Nevertheless, he still played 102 tests for the West Indies and was one of the best all-rounders in the world for much of his career.
Northamptonshire. One of the fastest and best bowlers in history, Ambrose played over 200 first class matches for the Leeward Islands, Northamptonshire and the West Indies. His partnership with Courtney Walsh was one of the key reasons for the West Indies' success in the late 1980s and 1990s.
|I was of West Indian Origin, born in Jamaica in 1963. However, I moved to England at a reasonably young age and played 40 tests for that country, and became known as perhaps the most enigmatic cricketer of the 1990s. Who am I?||West Indies Cricket
Devon Malcolm . Malcolm played 185 first class matches for Derbyshire, Northamptonshire and Leicestershire. He took 1054 first class wickets and 128 test wickets in his career.
Darren Ganga and Sherwin Campbell. The 2000 tour of Australia was a disaster for the West Indies - not only did Australia win 5-0, but arguably the best bowler of all time, Courtney Walsh, retired.
|In 1993, Brian Lara hit his first test century against Australia at the SCG. How many runs did he end up making and how was he out?||West Indies Cricket
277 and run out. Lara came to the crease with the West Indies in trouble at 2/31 and proceeded to destroy an Australian attack with Richie Richardson (who made 109) as they shared a partnership of 293.
Jamaica. Chris Gayle was born in Kingston, Jamaica, in 1979.
