comment “Dead Rubber” definitive etymology
I was actually hoping someone here would explain the bridge reference to me here. Can this question be migrated to English Language SE then ? Or should I create a new one?

Yes, I do know that they have smaller leagues (which is why I mentioned 'albeit at a smaller scale'), but the league sizes don't seem significant enough to cause this much of a differenc.

Of course, I wasn't referring to the world cups. I was wondering how their schedules have free time for these cups. After all, some of them do play in professional womens' leagues similar to (albeit at a smaller scale) to mens' leagues

The Cyprus Cup 2008 runner-up was USA(U-20) according to the wiki page. Also, could you add WHY they play these extra tournaments?

Even in cricket, Sachin's career isn't the longest career. (I don't even think he's in the top 10)

comment Can a hat-trick be separated by a maiden over?
From what I've read so far, people DO NOT consider (for some strange reason) wickets spread over matches as hattricks. So I take back my assertion, although I believe, it makes no sense to impose rules with little logic on hattricks.

@PhilipKendall - You are right on the Merv Hughes incident. :) Also, the term 'hattrick' is just a media-introduced term and not an official term persay. So, there are going to be differences in the way people interpret a hattrick.

Hatricks can even be spread across matches I think. (Merv Hughes had one such, if I'm not wrong)
