I have a memory of being at an Essex game when my Dad said, Son, this is the greatest batsman in the world coming in to bat! Result: Sobers c Smith b Boyce 0 - and me wondering what the fuss was about. Did I imagine this? asked Will Elsom from England Ive looked back at all Garry Sobers appearances against Essex, and they include two ducks - both at Chelmsford in the Sunday League, in 1969 (on the first day of its first season) and in 1971. But Im afraid Sobers was run out both times, in 1971 from the first ball he faced. Keith Boyce played in both matches - he also made a duck in the first one - but Neil Smith wasnt with Essex then (his first games for them were in 1973), and the only time he faced Sobers for Essex was in 1974 … he didnt catch him then either. I suppose its possible that you went to some sort of benefit match, in which case we wouldnt have the scores on record - but I think it would have been a disappointment to the crowd (and the beneficiary!) if Sir Garry had got out for a duck in such a game!I noticed that Ken Higgs, who died recently, had a very good Test bowling average. Where does he stand among England players? asked Chris Budgett from England The former Lancashire and Leicestershire seamer Ken Higgs, who died last week aged 79, took 71 wickets in his 15 Tests, at an average of 20.74. Of bowlers who have taken 70 or more wickets for England, only two who played after the First World War have better averages: express bowler Frank Tyson took 76 wickets at 18.56, and slow left-armer Johnny Wardle 102 at 20.39. The overall list, on which Higgs is eighth, is headed by the Surrey fast-medium bowler George Lohmann, who took 122 wickets at just 10.75 runs apiece in 18 Tests between 1886 and 1896. Higgs was remembered by David Hopps in this affectionate tribute after his death.How many batsmen have been part of two Test hat-tricks? asked James Cooper from England The most notable name on this particular list is that of the South African wicketkeeper Tommy Ward, who completed a king pair by being the third victim in both of the Australian legspinner Jimmy Matthews hat-tricks at Old Trafford during the 1912 Triangular Tournament. Oddly, those were Matthews only six wickets in the match! Two other people have been part of two separate Test hat-tricks. Stuart MacGill was the middle victim of both Darren Goughs for England in Sydney in 1998-99, and Jermaine Lawsons for West Indies in Bridgetown in 2002-03. And the Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Romesh Kaluwitharana was the first to fall in Wasim Akrams hat-trick in Karachi in 1998-99, and in Abdul Razzaqs in Galle, also for Pakistan, a year later. I recently read about a double near-miss on this front: in Auckland in 1954-55, in the match in which New Zealand were all out for 26 - the lowest total in all Tests - their legspinner Alex Moir came in on a hat-trick in both innings, after Bob Appleyard had inflicted a king pair on Ian Colquhoun. Moir survived both, so Appleyard never did perform the feat. For the full list of Test hat-tricks, complete with the victims, click here. Imad Wasim scored 153 runs without being dismissed in Pakistans recent one-day series against England - was this a record? asked Shaon from BangladeshImad Wasim, who missed one of the matches through injury, did indeed score 153 runs in four not-out innings in Pakistans recent one-day series against England. The record for a series involving five or more matches, though, is 212 runs - by MS Dhoni for India at home to England in October 2011, when his scores were 87, 35, 15 and 75, all not out (he did not bat in one match). The Australian batsman Damien Martyn scored 158 runs in five not-out innings - rounding it off with 116 not out in Auckland - in a six-match series in New Zealand in 1999-2000. Aravinda de Silva scored 334 runs without being dismissed in Sri Lankas four matches of a quadrangular series at home in 1996, while Javed Miandad made 234 without getting out - including two centuries - in Pakistans four-match home series against India in 1982-83.Virender Sehwag scored 55 in both innings in a match against West Indies in November 2011. Is this the highest such double? asked Dineshwaran from India Virender Sehwags double in that match in Delhi in 2011-12, while quite unusual, is not the highest in a Test - its actually 13th on the list. On top is Duleep Mendis, who made 105 in each innings for Sri Lanka against India in Madras (now Chennai) in 1982-83, while Misbah-ul-Haq followed 101 with a very rapid 101 not out for Pakistan against Australia in Abu Dhabi in 2014-15. Alvin Kallicharran comes next, with twin 80s for West Indies against England at The Oval in 1973. One of the most famous such doubles was performed by the West Indian captain Frank Worrell in the Tied Test against Australia in Brisbane in 1960-61: he was caught by Wally Grout off Alan Davidson for 65 in both innings. In all there have been 22 instances of a batsman making two identical scores of 50 or above in a Test. Sehwags is the highest such double for India, though: next comes Sachin Tendulkars brace of 52s against Pakistan in Kolkata in 2004-05. Sehwag also made 47 in both innings against Australia at Adelaide in 2003-04.I remember Inzamam-ul-Haq getting out for obstructing the field against India. How many such instances have there been? asked Vinod from India The instance youre referring to occurred in Peshawar in February 2006. He blocked a return from Raina with his bat while standing a couple of yards out of his crease, reported Wisden, which added: Afterwards Inzamam wrote indignantly: Such not very common laws need to be explained properly and in detail, but after more than 100 Tests and 350 one-day internationals, he might have known about this one. At the time Inzamam was the third batsman to be given out obstructing the field in a one-day international; there have been three more since, most recently Ben Stokes, for England against Australia at Lords last year. There was also one such dismissal in a Test - by Englands Len Hutton against South Africa at The Oval in 1951.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The NFLs news of the week broke Monday in Los Angeles, 3,000 miles from where the New England Patriots offense would dismantle the Baltimore Ravens top-ranked defense about six hours later. The news reverberated across the continent and back. Jeff Fisher was out as Rams coach, and its entirely possible that the guy who ends up replacing him is the guy running that Patriots offense.He is Josh McDaniels, 40-year-old failed former Broncos head coach and redeemed New England wunderkind, and hes ready for another shot at the big job.McDaniels declined to discuss the issue Tuesday, saying he was focused on getting the Patriots ready to play his former team Sunday, and thats what youd expect him to say. Even if they want to, the Rams couldnt interview him until the playoff bye week, assuming the Patriots get a bye, or the week after, if they dont.But McDaniels is going to be among the hottest head-coaching candidates when that cycle opens up next month, and the Rams job is going to be appealing for a number of reasons: big market, top young quarterback prospect, stars at running back and on the defensive line, and patient ownership willing to spend, among others. McDaniels and Los Angeles are a match that makes sense, and this wont be the last time you read about it.McDaniels Xs-and-Os credentials are flawless. What he has accomplished as the Patriots offensive coordinator this season speaks for itself. That the Patriots went 3-1 without Tom Brady the first four weeks of the season, scoring 81 points in those three victories, is a testament to his creativity and problem-solving ability. The creativity continues to be on display with Brady back. Monday nights victory was a masterpiece of tempo-shifting scheme creativity that maximizes matchups and keeps the Patriots multiple steps ahead of their opponents as games go along. The Patriots defense seems to be taking all season to come together the way the team hoped it would, so theres more pressure than ever on the offense to carry this team into and through the postseason.But a great coordinator does not automatically a great head coach make, and McDaniels is going to have to answer questions from interested teams about what went wrong in Denver and what he learned from it. Those who know him well say he knows that and is prepared with answers.McDaniels was 33 when the Broncos hirred him as a head coach and gave him significant control over the roster.ddddddddddddPut simply, he wasnt ready. He went 8-8 in 2009, then fell off to 3-9 through 12 games in his second season before they fired him. It was a brief and tumultuous tenure that began with an ugly mishandling of incumbent quarterback Jay Cutler and ended with a videotape-spying scandal. During his time in Denver, McDaniels endured personality clashes with players and assistant coaches that have been well-documented.Six years have passed, though, and McDaniels is now older than some of the head coaches (Adam Gase, Ben McAdoo) who were hired last year and have done well. He has drawn cursory interest on the coaching market the past couple years but hasnt been inclined to jump back in at the first opportunity.I definitely would love to be a head coach again, he said last month. There are only 32 of those in the world. They are opportunities that dont come around very often. It would have to be at the right place and the right time. I try to make good decisions, whats best for my family and myself.People who have worked with McDaniels cite his high intellect as a reason to think hell succeed if given another chance. Perhaps more than ever, a head coach these days has to be able to think along with his personnel people, his salary cap people, to understand the intricacies of what it takes to run the franchise so that he can be as successful as possible in the locker room and on the sideline. McDaniels is well-regarded as intelligent enough to thrive on those fronts.In his second stint with the Patriots, McDaniels also has shown an ability to connect with players of different types and ability levels and to communicate with them in ways that draw the best out of them. His failure in Denver, people who know him say, taught him what he needed to work on, and hes smart enough to know how to (A) put it into practice and (B) deliver real and thoughtful answers when asked about it in his next interview cycle.Maybe he doesnt get the Rams job or any job this time around. But at 40, McDaniels is ready and well-positioned for another shot at NFL head coaching. If hes going to make good on his considerable talent, Los Angeles could be the perfect spot.
