Graham Gooch's 456 (333 and 123) against India at Lord's in 1990 is the record for the most runs scored by a batsman in a match. But what about most runs in two consecutive innings, even if they include different matches? During Sri Lanka's recent 3-0 victory against Bangladesh, Kumar Sangakkara scored 200 and 222 in successive innings. It was only the fifth instance of a batsman scoring double-hundreds in consecutive innings, as opposed to consecutive matches.

Walter Hammond was the first to score double-hundreds in successive innings: 251 and 200 against Australia at Sydney and Melbourne to lead England to a 3-0 lead in the 1928-29 Ashes. A pair of centuries from Hammond at Adelaide extended the lead to 4-0 before Australia pulled one back in the last Test at Melbourne.

Before anyone else could score consecutive doubles, Hammond repeated the feat again, this time on the tour of New Zealand in 1932-33. Both Tests were affected by rain but Hammond got stuck in, scoring 227 in his only innings at Christchurch and rattling up 336 at Auckland, breaking Bradman's record for the highest individual Test score. Those two innings add up to the most runs scored by a batsman in consecutive knocks.

All but one of the batsmen in the table above have had long and illustrious international careers. The exception is Vinod Kambli, who arrived with a bang, scoring 224 and 227 against England and Zimbabwe in only his fourth and fifth innings. After two more hundreds in his next three Tests against Sri Lanka, Kambli began to slip and faded from the Test circuit before he turned 24. He is the only Indian batsman in the table; none of the modern heavyweights - Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid or VVS Laxman have scored enough in consecutive innings to make the cut.

Sanath Jayasuriya is the only batsman to score two consecutive 150s in one-day internationals. He ravaged England for 152 off 99 balls at Leeds in 2006 and then bullied Netherlands for 157 off 104 balls at Amstelveen as Sri Lanka piled up 443 for 9 - the highest totals in ODIs.

The table of most Test wickets in consecutive innings is similar to the records for the highest wickets tally in a Test match with Jim Laker and the other usual suspects leading the way.

Waqar Younis, however, dominates the one-day international table for most wickets in consecutive games with seven entries [Bradman had three in the Test table for most runs]. Waqar has taken two consecutive five-fors on four occasions while no other bowler has managed more than one. Waqar also has three five-fors in a row: 5 for 11 and 5 for 16 against New Zealand at Peshawar and Sialkot, and 5 for 52 against West Indies at Karachi in 1990.
