The last one is Graham Yallop i think though it could also be Graeme Wood - both Australians. I think it is Yallop though, when the Packer Australians were away and the Ashes were being played.

5 wickets in an ODI...... lemme hazard another guess... Kapil in the 83 world cup... i think it was against the Aussies.
