Presented here are the ACS’s answers to a number of general questions about the statistics and history of cricket that arise from time to time. It is hoped that they will be of interest both to relative newcomers to these aspects of the game, and to a more general readership.

Any comments, or suggestions for further questions to be answered in this section, should be sent to secretary@acscricket.com. Please note that this section is for general questions only, and not for dealing with specific queries about cricket records, or about individual cricketers or their performances.
