Can you name these six shades of jacket as worn by Richie Benaud (as per the legendary Billy Birmingham aka the 12th Man)?

A point per colour, a bonus for it being in the right slot, and a bonus for getting them all right!



‘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…
