Happy new year, quizzers!
Just a couple of answers to give before we reveal the winner…
World Cup 2007, South Africa vs Netherlands, Dan van Bunge bowling
World T20 2007, England vs India, Stuart Broad bowling
Sobers and Shastri also did it in first-class matches.
There have been 43 Test hat-tricks
A disproportionate number by England players it seems, including in recent times…
