"Yabba" was the nickname given to Stephen Harold Gascoigne, a Sydney rabbit-seller who became famous for his raucous pronouncements from the Hill during matches at the SCG. Arguably the best-recalled example of his output was his advice to the England captain Douglas Jardine during the Bodyline tour: "Leave our flies alone Jardine! They're the only friends you've got out here."
Mitchell Starc's percentage of bowled dismissals in one-day internationals - 39.33% - is indeed a record for anyone with more than 100 wickets. Next come Waqar Younis, with 151 out of 416 (36.3%), the West Indian Jerome Taylor, with 45 out of 128 (35.16%) and Wasim Akram, with 176 out of 502 (35.06%). If we drop the qualification to 50 wickets, Starc comes in third, behind another Pakistani - offspinner Tauseef Ahmed, with 23 bowled out of 55 wickets (41.82%) - and another rapid Aussie, Shaun Tait, with 25 out of 62 (40.32%).
Only two batsmen have managed a triple-century in their team's second innings in a Test. For a long time the only one to achieve it was Hanif Mohammad, with his monumental match-saving 337 against West Indies in Bridgetown in 1957-58. With Pakistan trailing by 473 runs after the first innings, Hanif batted for 970 minutes (or 999, by some accounts), and Pakistan escaped with a draw. Nearly 56 years later, in February 2014, Hanif was joined by Brendon McCullum, who made 302 (in 775 minutes) for New Zealand against India in Wellington.
Kane Williamson's current tally of seven scores of between 90 and 99 in one-day internationals puts him joint-sixth (with India's Mohammad Azharuddin) on this particular list. Jacques Kallis made eight, and Nathan Astle, Aravinda de Silva and Grant Flower nine - but way ahead, with twice as many, is Sachin Tendulkar, whose 18 included three 99s.
The Surrey and England bowler George Lohmann holds this particular record. He took 15 wickets - 7 for 38 and 8 for 7 - against South Africa in Port Elizabeth in 1895-96, but was also dismissed for ducks in both innings.
