Hick and Mark Waugh's brilliant sequence (27 January 1999)

Hick and Mark Waugh's brilliant sequence

Atul Kahate

Graeme Hick and Mark Waugh are in great form at the moment. Their brilliant run has produced two milestones. Hick has now scored back-to-back hundreds, (England losing on both occassions), and three in four innings. Waugh has made scores of fifty or more in six consecutive innings.

Neither of these is a World Record. But there have not been many instances of these. The following tables summarize their feats. It would be interesting to follow their progress and see if either or both break the respective records of Zaheer Abbas/Saeed Anwar and Javed Miandad.
