Seemingly innocuous number 87 is called in Australian cricket "the devil number of cricket." Fans of the sport believe that hand-in after a set of 87 points of the game will take off soon.
The roots of superstition dates back to 1929, when 10-year-old boy Keith Miller watched the game with Donald Bradman, is considered "the best bat" at that time. In that game Donald scored just 87 points, after which he was taken out of the game. After 15 years, when Miller also became a professional cricketer, his partner Ian Johnson, too, once dropped out of the game, gaining exactly 87 points, allowing superstition to gain a foothold.
