It would need someone to host it then.

The Excel worksheet is locked so would have to type al 72 questions in by hand.

re: Cricket Quiz - You Need Excel

You hear the words but what do they what term is used for the following definitions?

1 A swing across the line of the ball (resembling a scything motion) played without much technique.

2 A lower order batsman sent in when the light is dimming to play out the remaining overs of the day (in a Test Match) in order to protect more valuable batsmen.

3 An opener who bats without getting dismissed for the entire duration of the team innings.

4 An over in which no runs are scored off the bat, and no wides or no balls are bowled.

5 A batsman's score of nought (zero) runs in both innings of a two-innings match.

6 A delivery that reaches the batsman at around head height without bouncing.

7 An exceptionally poor batsman, even more so than a rabbit.

8 The bat when held with a light grip such that it gives when the ball strikes it, and the ball loses momentum and falls to the ground.

I have the full excel quix (72 questions) post your email address if you want it.

Of course, 57) and 58) should be named after Derek Randall and Ewen Chatfield after Chatfield wan him out in 1978 in Auckland and caused a diplomatic incident. Unfortunately, I don't have a clue right now.

Spoff_MFC Posted on 2/11 15:45
re: Cricket Quiz - You Need Excel

61 If the stumps were even slightly thicker that the ball would've hit them.

62 A drying wicket that is exceedingly difficult to bat on.

63 A difficult wet pitch.

64 A very poor batsman, particularly tail-end batsmen, who are usually specialist bowlers

I don't even understand 61!!!

Good call Chalky, as soon as you put it there it came back to me (though I think a Randall is better). I love getting Mankad's in indoor cricket (mind, i just love indoor cricket, it's absolutely mad but I soon learned to wear a box whilst fielding ....).

Unanswered:

16 When a batsman narrowly avoids touching the ball with the edge of his bat, through good fortune rather than skill.

25 An unrefined shot played to the leg side usually across the line of the ball.

35 To wield the bat as if a sword

38 A bowler is said to 'have the ? ' on a batsman when they have got them out many times in their career.

44 Three consecutive ducks

55 A short pitched delivery that appears to be a bouncer, making the striker duck to avoid from being hit

re: Cricket Quiz

FINAL FOUR

69 A pitch that clearly favours the batting side.

70 Bowlers who are of medium pace, and are effective in the one-day scenario in choking the runs.

71 Slow, laborious type of bowler who thinks he's quick, once was quick, or is simply old, fat and unfit and needs to be put out to pasture.

72 A delivery that snakes out of the hand with little or no spin imparted, and so deceives through its very ordinariness

69 Flat track or shirt front?
