Quiz Question of the Day

Post by guildfordbat on Thu Jun 01, 2017 2:51 pm

To celebrate the start of the Champions Trophy or for want of a better excuse, I thought I would give you this quiz question I came across the other day and rather liked.

You are not allowed to use google etc although you can ask your wife or partner. Wink

Anyway, here goes.

Please name the three winners of the UK's Strictly Come Dancing tv programme who are former first class cricketers.

I think those are correct. The third one seems very tricky, I'll start the process of elimination by saying it's not Ian Austin

Pete - firstly, well done on not pretending to have never seen Strictly! Very Happy

Congratulations again - you've got two of them with Ramps and Gough. Now for the third from you or someone else ....

I'm pretty sure at least one of those won before I moved to the UK in mid 2006 mind Wink

Just checked, Ramprakash was in late '06 Doh - granted at the time I was working near Leeds during the week & in London weekends.

Even I knew those two but the third escapes me...

Surprised Tuffers hasn't had a go at it.

You're a clever so and so, Hammer.

Yep, the tv presenter Chris Hollins and winner of Strictly played eight first class matches for Oxford University in the mid-'90s and ended that part of his sporting career with an impressive batting average of almost 52.

He had a go, but did not win. (As did Vaughan)
