    A question I would like to know the answer to:
    I have just begun reading Austin Robertson's book "Cricket Outlaws", about the formation of World Series Cricket. In the chapter relating to John Cornell, Austin states he and Cornell are no longer on speaking terms. I understand if Robertson does not wish to make the reasons public, but naturally, when I read this I was curious to know why they had a rift. Does anybody know anything about the split in their friendship?

    Focus on Western Province and not on North West.

    The only thing I can possibly think of is something to do with the lowest declared score for an innings win?

    Which bowler has taken the most Test wickets and never been one of Wisden's five cricketers of the year?

    Herath's got more than 400 poles doesn't he?

    Well, I wonder who has the most Test runs without being a Wisden cricketer of the year? Not sure myself but I'll have a think about it.

    Hey yeah. It looks as though Herath should be the answer.

    The wisden list is always a funny one, that was obviously a guess, but even though he's got by far the lowest profile of anyone in the 400 club the answer could have been something super obvious.

    I think Inzamam-ul-Haq (8,829) has the most Test runs without being a Wisden cricketer of the year.
