Today’s question comes from Gaurav Sundararaman, who is, in his own words, “a sports buff whose love for sports range from T20 cricket all the way to 9-Ball pool. He is also (rather unusually) a very big fan of the Australian cricket team. His big dream is to win an open sports quiz if there is ever one… sigh!!! You can read his personal blog right here.”
If three people made up an exhaustive list, and two of them are the people in the visuals below, who is the third? Also, what connects them?
Maurice Allom (Visual 1) and Damien Fleming (Visual 2) were the first and last people to take a hattrick on their test debuts. The only other cricketer to have achieved that feat is Peter Petherick.
