2. When Viv Richards famously turned out for a season at Rishton in the Lancs leagues, it would be me who bowled his first ball in club cricket; a delivery that trapped him absolutely plumb in front. The umpire, not wanting to send home the 1000s of people who had turned up to watch without at least a bit of magic, refused to give it out and Viv would go on to score 87..... in a game my side lost by 86 runs. Viv would later admit he cant believe the umpire gave it not out.

I'd have got it when we found out he was a chicken farmer.

Was he fast?

It was eddo the chicken farmer.....

He was 35 when he knocked England over in 97..... and was known as a part time player, farming being his day job. Consequently he lost a lot of pace by the time Zimbabwe got test status, in his prime as a younger guy he was supposed to have been one of the quickest bowlers ever to have played

I don't know if his records still stand, they did up to a few years ago, but he's the oldest person to have taken a one day hattrick, with the additional record of dismissing 3 bats with the highest average (it used to be by some distance too)

The second clue will make the answer very obvious, as I am pretty sure without trying to revert to stereotype that Chandigarh is in Sikh Punjab, which means the surname will more than likely be Singh..... just a case of guessing which.

Harbi?

Ok, then maybe my thinking is completely wrong. Apart from Bedi, who I am sure is from Amritsar, I couldnt name any sikhs that have captained India past harbi.

Kohli and Sehwag are Delhi boys, Gavaskar , Ravi and Tendulkar are from Mumbai, Sourav was the Prince of Calcutta, Dravid was from Indore, Azza was from Hyderabad.....

Think the only other Indian Captains I could name after that are Dev, Contractor, Venkat and the Tiger....

Ill go for the latter, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi.....
