Chris Woakes
2 of those are wrong

I think I will rule out David Platt as the other two were regarded as good cricketers. I guess Geoff Hurst.

I don't know the answer to the question.
My only contribution, being pedantic, is to point out that I don't think that Chris Woakes will be on a hat-trick when he bowls in the next match - as Wikipedia says: "The deliveries may be interrupted by an over bowled by another bowler from the other end of the pitch or the other team's innings, but must be three consecutive deliveries by the individual bowler in the same match."

Wondered where Platt came from,suppose you had to mention a former Villa player but well done,the answer is Geoff Hurst,go to the top of the class& give out the pencils,those of you still wondering,his cricket hat trick came whilst playing for his club side in the Essex league,he was a fair cricketer but chose football,apparently there's more money in that game!

If that's the case why do we hear'so&so's on a hat trick next match' when he gets10& Jack in successive deliveries

People make statements without understanding what they are saying.

Also, Geoff Hurst was a wicket keeper, so is highly unlilely to have taken a cricket 'hat trick'.
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's
It is Warwickshire County Cricket Club!

He also bowled a bit as well though. I mentioned Platt because I know he got 4 or 5 goals in a game for England and can remember him playing a cricket match whilst he was at Villa.

Quite correct Terry - I wanted to avoid being called a pendant angel However, I would call it a "personal" hat trick. And, of course, it's Chris Woakes so don't anyone say it's not a hat trick.

So was A.C. Smith at the time when he took a hat-trick after taking his pads off against Essex in 1965, so it can happen.

Something in my memory is saying that AC got a soccer blue at Oxford. I wonder if he got a double hat trick too?

So Paul does this mean I can sue my old grammar school for all the torment I have suffered over the past 50 years and for having to write out 100 times etc etc.

It is all a sign that our language continually changes. My beef is the missuse of the apostrophy and using the wrong word such as "of" when meaning "have" simply because of the lazy way we pronounce the word have

I agree about the apostrophe; and I'm sure that Chris Woake's thinks the same.

I'm very guilty of those LE. 

In my school days I was told not to start a sentence with an and or but but later on I discovered it was acceptable. Our language is continually changing for the worse...

One that annoys me is the incorrect use of your and you're, but I think the wrong use of the apostrophe is probably top of my list.

Hear hear! Been going through some application forms today for an HR Advisor position with good salary. Some are even filling them in now almost in 'text speak'. Unbelievable. I was actually told by a (very poor) secretary the other day when I picked her up about her dreadful letter writing that I was out of date as the thing now is 'open punctuation'. No capitals, full stops etc. What a pile of c**p!!!!
