Advent Calendar: 21st December

Advent calendar 21

You learned yesterday that the highest ODI average for a batsman at any stage of his career belongs to Kevin Pietersen, against South Africa, at Port Elizabeth in 2005. That average was…


In his first seven matches, KP’s record was 27*, 77*, DNB, 0, 22*, 108*, 33, which means that just before he was dismissed for 33 in that final innings, he hit this lofty number.

Some cracking guesses: Mick 262, Chris P 210, Matt B 112. 5,4,3 points respectively!

From one extreme to the other. Who has ‘scored’ the most ducks in Test history?


‘How to play’ recap

Every day there will be a quiz question. Could be anything – picture, trivia, the CPS announcement of the Stokes charging verdict. Anything.

Reply using the form below the question each day. In general, the first five people to answer correctly get 5,4,3,2,1 points, although this may change on any given day if the question doesn’t lend itself to this format. Bonus points may also make an appearance!

At the end of the 24 days, the winner based on cumulative score will be announced. Updates along the way of course. I’m sure we can rustle up a prize too…
