Long before Cricket became codified, Jam Sahib used to play.

Those days there was no change of balls after 75 overs in a test match.

It is said that Jam Sahib was pitted against one stubborn Australian bowler (whose brain was later scanned for intercontinental ballistic missile systems).

He bowled with extremely precise line, length, spin and swing. Jam Sahib being what he is known for, struck the ball also equally precisely.

Ultimately the ball turned into a cube – and the game had to stop when the ball cracked.

Then they kept the ball in a museum in Sussex county. [They also introduced the ball change rule.]

It is further said that a Hungarian mathematician was visiting England and saw this ball. He could not take his mind off and took sketches of it and created a replica – and just applied six colors, one on each face.

His name was Dr. Rubik and the beauty of Jam Sahib‘s strokes made a world known puzzle!
