This week in our stats series Did You Know? where we present well known and lesser-known facts on a theme, we look at individual contributions in Tests
55 Number of times Sachin Tendulkar was the highest run scorer for India in all-out team innings - the most by a batsman in Tests. Two others have done it over 50 times: Brian Lara (53) and Shivnarine Chanderpaul (52). Sunil Gavaskar (38) and Allan Border (37) complete the top five.
34.42 Percentage of times Don Bradman was the highest run scorer in his team's all-out innings - 21 out of 61 - the highest among all batsmen with a minimum of 50 all-out innings. Among players who batted in over 100 all-out innings for their teams, Lara has the best percentage (27.46%) of being the top run scorer - 53 out of 193. Gavaskar (26.95%), Joe Root (24.24%), AB de Villiers (24.03%) and Tendulkar (23.70%) are the others in the top five with a minimum of 100 innings.
10.37 Percentage of Carl Hooper's innings that were the top scores for his team - 14 out of 135 - the lowest such rate among all batsmen who batted 100 or more times in completed innings in the top six. Mark Waugh is only slightly better, with 16 top scores in 145 all-out innings (11.03%). Among those who batted 100 or more times in completed innings in the top four positions, Sanath Jayasuriya has the lowest percentage (9.80%) of top scores - ten out of 102.
7 Number of times Lara's centuries were the only 50-plus score in a completed innings for West Indies - the most by a batsman. Tendulkar has scored six such hundreds for India. Five batsmen have scored four centuries each in these circumstances: Colin Cowdrey, Graham Gooch, Desmond Haynes, Rahul Dravid, and Virat Kohli.
7* Instances of a batsman scoring a century with no other player reaching fifty in the Test from either side, in matches where all four innings were played. John Reid (100 v England), Dilip Vengsarkar (102 v England), Graeme Wood (100 v England), Ian Botham (114 v India), Andy Flower (113 not out v West Indies), Kumar Sangakkara (157 not out v West Indies) and Dimuth Karunaratne (158 v SA) are the seven batsmen to have done so. Five batsmen have been the only centurion in similar circumstances when three innings of the match were played: Henry Wood, Arthur Hill, Hanif Mohammad, Denis Lindsay, and Matthew Hayden.
6 Instances of a batsman's double-century being the only 50-plus score in a Test innings. Dudley Nourse (231 v Australia), Len Hutton (202 b West Indies), Arthur Morris (206 v England), Dennis Amiss (262 v West Indies), Marvan Atapattu (216 not out v Zimbabwe), and Lara (226 v Australia) hold this distinction.
9 Instances when Cowdrey was the only centurion in a Test where a minimum of three innings were played. Geoff Boycott is next with eight such instances, while Bradman, Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin, and Sangakkara have been the lone centurions seven times each.
8 Instances of a batsman scoring twin hundreds in a Test when no other batsman from either side scored a century. The first to achieve this was Rohan Kanhai against Australia in Adelaide in 1961. The latest is Ajinkya Rahane, v South Africa in Delhi in 2015. Glenn Turner, Alec Stewart, Steve Waugh, Grant Flower, Tillakaratne Dilshan, and Brendan Taylor are the others to have done so.
4 Number of players who have, on multiple occasions, scored twin hundreds in a Test when no other batsman from their team has scored a century: Gavaskar, Border, Taylor and Jacques Kallis have all done it twice. There are a total of 38 such instances in Tests. Australia have done it most often (eight).
3 Instances of a batsman scoring more than 50% of his team's runs in a Test when they were all out in both innings. Lara's 53.83% against Sri Lanka (221 and 130) in Colombo in 2001 is the highest. The other two are: Jimmy Sinclair (51.88%) against England (106 and 4) in Cape Town in 1899 and Andy Flower (50.36%) against South Africa (142 and 199 not out) in Harare in 2001.
