Well thought out :) ...oh yeah and i think 4 wickets in a row, or as you dubbed a "quad-trick", is called a "double-hat-trick". I could be wrong though!

I really like that last award aswell ;)

4 wickets in a row is a double hat-trick (dont ask my why just is) and that was over two overs, so it doesnt count :D

You were possibly extracting the urine there Woosaah, but it is still a double hat-trick. As with hat-tricks, Merv Hughes even got one in a test by taking last the two wickets of the first innings, then the first wicket with first ball in 2nd innings, and that one counts too :D

Extracting the urine= taking the p*ss?

oh it still counts as a double hattrick but it doesnt count as "Malcolm Marshall Award for unplayable over" since it was two overs.

though saying that in that spell he was pretty much unplayable :)
