Just before I went on holiday four weeks ago, I posted up some trivia
questions about Bramall Lane, where only one Test match was ever played.
Any replies to it had expired from my server by the time I returned, so
for anyone who's interested (and even for those who are not), here are
the answers:

1. In what year was the only Test at Bramall Lane played?  Answer: 1902.
2. Who scored the only century in that Test?  Answer: Clem Hill.
3. What subsequently happened to the Bramall Lane cricket ground?
   Answer: It was destroyed by development of the Sheffield United
   football ground on the site.  What used to be the wicket is now
   under one of the stands.  Criminal.  Philistines.
