    is a former Australian cricketer, who played for the Australian cricket team, the Western Warriors, Lancashire County Cricket Club, and the Tasmanian Tigers. Chris Matthews was an excellent left arm fast bowler, who generated lively pace, and performed well in the test arena, but was overshadowed by the emergence of young Queensland firebrand, Craig McDermott, and never had the opportunity to show his true talent. Matthews signed for Lancashire County Cricket Club in 1988, but only managed three matches for them. He returned to Western Australia, but failed to hold down a regular spot, and so moved to the Tasmanian Tiger's in 1990, where he became highly successful, taking 119 wickets for them before retiring at the end of the 1994-95 season.

About Baby

Higher ratio of birth mark

The ratio of birth mark among babies is very high i.e. one baby born out of every 3 babies have a birth mark present on their body. Baby girls have more probability of birth marks than baby boys.

Infantile Amnesia

Since babies are not able to recall what they have done till the age of 3, their recording machine in the brain is not functional till then. Hence, they don’t remember pretty much anything once they grow up.

Eyesight Versus Brain

A baby’s eyesight is sharper than his brain. A baby is able to see everything as an adult who has good eyesight, but since the processing of the brain is slow, they are not able to comprehend each and every thing clearly.
