Dawid Malan, who seems to have been forgotten by the England Test selectors, made 199 earlier this month for Yorkshire against Sussex at Headingley, before being bowled by the promising Ireland-born offspinner Jack Carson. Malan was also out for 199 in June 2019, playing for Middlesex in Derby. He did at least escape the nervous 190s in 2020, with 219 for Yorkshire against Derbyshire at Headingley.
The Trinidadian fast bowler Jayden Seales made his Test debut against South Africa in St Lucia last week after just one previous first-class match - and that wasn't even in the Caribbean, as it came for West Indies A v New Zealand A in Nelson in December 2020. Seales took the wicket of fellow debutant Keegan Petersen in his first over in Tests.
Actually Jimmy Anderson has now had 96 different team-mates: in his record-breaking 162nd match for England, against New Zealand at Edgbaston, he played alongside Olly Stone for the first time.
The leading uncapped run scorer in T20 cricket is Cameron Delport of South Africa, who has so far amassed 5782 for a multitude of sides, but has not yet got the nod from his country's selectors. Riki Wessels is next, with 5398. For the list of the leading T20 scorers, click here. We should perhaps mention Michael Klinger, who piled up 5960 runs in T20s but did not play for Australia until the fag end of his career: his three T20Is (which produced 143 of his runs) came when he was in his 37th year.
The man who played the most Tests without improving the bowling figures from his debut is a famous name not normally associated with bowling, although actually he was a very handy allrounder. England's Wally Hammond took 5 for 36 on his Test debut, after opening the bowling against South Africa in Johannesburg in 1927-28 - and never improved on this in 84 further Tests, although he came close nearly ten years later, with 5 for 57 against Australia in Adelaide. Hammond finished with 83 Test wickets.
