Wink Obscure fact of the day

Royal hattrick:

King George VI, who was played by Colin Firth for an Oscar winning role in The King's Speech, "managed one of the most illustrious hat-tricks of all time" (ESPNCricinfo).



Wisden 1953 writes:
Quote:
"When Prince Albert, he performed the hat-trick on the private ground on the slopes below Windsor Castle, where the sons and grandsons of Edward VII used to play regularly. A left-handed batsman and bowler, the King bowled King Edward VII, King George V and the present Duke of Windsor in three consecutive balls, thus proving himself the best Royal cricketer since Frederick, Prince of Wales, in 1751, took a keen interest in the game."
