1111 : 10 times Nelson plus 1

111 is referred to as Nelson in Cricket, a tricky point, where even umpires have their superstitious selves kicking in. Usually batting teams try not to do anything ambitious at this point and instead choose the safe refuge of a single.

“Nelson” comes from Admiral Nelson who has “one arm, one leg and one eye”.
