As of the end of the first Test, how many Test cricketers that have played for England have been born outside England and Wales?
Thought he was born in Italy?T.Dexter (india)
So close. But there's not as many from Ireland and Scotland as you'd think.Thought he was born in Italy?
A couple more I know, but good list The Reaper
Nassar Hussain (India)
Derek Pringle (Kenya)
Phil Edmonds (Rhodesia - Not sure if mdoern day Zimbabwe or Zambia)
Given no doubt that there are quite a number from Ireland & Scotland we have not mentioned I'd guess about 75 all up
It would be. British Raj ended shortly after WWII.There are a few who have played for both England and another nation who were born in that other nation:
Iftikhar Ali Khan Pataudi aka 8th Nawab of Pataudi - born in Pataudi, Punjab, India, played for England and then India. I'm not too sure on my geographical history but his birthplace may have been regarded as British sovereign at the time.
I had you in mind when I posed that question...It would be. British Raj ended shortly after WWII.
Though technially speaking he was a head of state of a state that wasn't under direct British control.
I got a high distinction in westpac every year. And in the chemistry, general science, english and geography comps
I don't see why cricket would be any different to the norm so it would be rounded up to 200 minutes.Does anyone know how a batsman's innings is timed? Does it go down to the last second?
If a batsman has batted for 199 minutes and 46 seconds, is his time given as 199 or does it get pushed up to 200?
