3. It's 1982 and X wasn't supposed to play the game against Australia but Y pulled out on the evening before the game as the team had just returned from an England tour.

In 1977, spurred on by the crowd, X attacked Y with a barrage of bouncers. After a while Y looked at him and said, "Remember, I don't miss." X found himself at the batting crease late next afternoon. True to his word, Y hit him first up. The big man went down. What followed was an unforgettable passage of play as Y gave it to him over and over. X retired hurt in the end and Y took great delight in letting the crowd know what he thought of them.X never played international cricket but Y holds a certain distinction in his country. X and Y?

Jackman was in the middle of an impressive spell. The acting captain strode from deep mid-off, halted Jackman as he was beginning a new over and asked for the ball. He proceeded to mark out his own run, turned his cap around, rolled his shoulders, swung his arms, and ran in.

But what could they do about it?"I said, 'What if we shave it?' So that's what we did," Guy says. "We shaved the shoulder down and I said, 'I think that's a good idea for a bat'. Newbery said: 'What would you call it? It's got to be something like a _____'. I said it felt like a heavy wand. He said, 'What about ____ ______ _________'.
