    Is it to do with the arm he bowled with?

    Most overs in a first class innings? He bowled nearly 100 against the Poms once.

    No, it is a record he has held for nearly the past three years only.

    Sonny took the record from Arthur Morris.

    You're getting close. Sonny is the oldest surviving something else. It is not something totally obscure, it is cricket related.

    No, not this. A smallish yellow book is involved.

    You must be a "quickish" reader if you think a 1000+ page book is "smallish". :p

    Well, smallish in size, not quantity. Actually, I have noticed the paper texture in Wisden has become thinner in recent editions.

    New South Wales' score of 807 against South Australia in 1899 was a new highest score in first class cricket in Australia surpassing the 803 scored by which team?

    I immediately thought of this famous picture but the timeline is wrong not to mention the country.

    I bet they would have been really smug about it too, especially the reformed smokers.

    What would be the equivalent today? I-phone users versus android? Banned versus non-banned? Actually lefties v righties would be a good one to watch.

    One-arm vs one-leg

    Actually, that refers to a game in 1848 - there was another in 1867, but I couldn't find a reference.

    I have the Wisden Anthology 1864-1900. It lists some other 'Extraordinary Matches' (with scorecards)

    The Married vs the Single - 1844 (Married won), 1849 (Singles), 1858 (Singles), 1871 (Singles), 1892 (Singles)

    North vs South (lots), East vs West (once)

    Right Handed vs Left (Right won)

    Smiths vs Joneses

    Lots of cricket played on Ice in the 1878/1879

    The name of that great moron Greg Ritchie popped up in another thread and it reminded me that he is the only member of a peculiar Australian batting club. What is that club?

    Ok - I'll take a guess. He made a century in his first or second test, but I don't think that's it.

    Did he bat in most positions?

    Does relate to centuries, specifically maiden test centuries.
    Edit- This club actually has 2 member, Justin Langer is the other one.
