In celebration of World Statistics Day on Tuesday, 20 October in the middle of Bowlers Month, we asked you to tell us some of the most mind-blowing bowling stats you know.
Here are a few of our favourites, starting with some monster numbers.

Sir Curtley Ambrose @ambrose_curtly 7-1 at the adelaide oval. Devastating. Had the aussies tangled up in knots. Say no more— william j seivwright (@williamseivwrig) October 20, 2020
