    I remember those three more for the amount of short crap pitched outside the off stump, especially Wessels at Brisbane.

    Even though checking through stats may not be in the spirit of thread, you kind of have to do it for this type of question, because unless you have the career averages of every noteworthy player cemented in your brain, you need to check. That's what I did with Geoff Miller because I wanted to double check whether he was the right answer before I posted. I have since checked a dozen more players but still no go.

    I googled it. That's what I consider not in the spirit.

    I think we may have found the same article in which case shame on you for randomly googling Derek Pringle, I found it, thought it a good question and posted the question before checking cricinfo. So, apologies all. Didn't realise he had a cameo in Chariots of Fire either.

    All good. It is interesting to see how many have very similar bat vs ball averages, though.

    Just for the record, as published in Christopher Martin-Jenkins' third edition of The Who's Who of Test Cricketers, at the end of 1986, Geoff Miller had a batting average of 27.08 (10,700 runs) and a bowling average of 27.08 (772 wickets). I knew I had read of him having identical averages somewhere.

    Also, I know that James Lillywhite junior at the end of 1878 averaged 14.82 (for 4,893 runs and 1,069 wickets) and Jim Laker at the end of 1955 averaged 18.71 (for 5,708 runs and 1,274 wickets). There are most likely other players who were similarly positioned at significant stages of their careers, not merely after a couple of matches.

    What a relief to see the answer was not "former Australian politicians who had to resign due to having dual citizenship."
