The West Indies team against New Zealand in Wellington, with no one's surname starting later than the tenth letter of the alphabet - Alzarri Joseph comes last in alphabetical order - is unusual. But it's always dangerous to say that something has never happened before in cricket, and it turns out this has: when West Indies played Pakistan in Sharjah in 2001-02, their last surname in alphabetical order was wicketkeeper Ridley Jacobs.
There have so far been 12 partnerships of 100 or more (plus one of 99) by two Test debutants. Top of the list, by quite a distance, is the opening stand of 249 by Billy Ibadulla (166) and Abdul Kadir (95) for Pakistan against Australia in Karachi in 1964-65. Next comes a sixth-wicket partnership of 165, by Dave Houghton (121) and Andy Flower (59) in Zimbabwe's first Test, against India in Harare in 1992-93.
There have now been 47 Tests in which the fourth-innings total was the highest of the match. Of those, 16 have not been enough to stave off defeat. The highest fourth-innings total that still resulted in a loss was Pakistan's 450, after being set 490 to win by Australia in Brisbane in 2016-17.
During 2006-07, Australia played five matches with four players who had 100 or more caps to their name. India equalled this late in 2007, and over the next couple of years played several Tests with four centurions in their ranks. In one of these, against Australia in Delhi in 2008-09, they came very close to fielding five, as VVS Laxman was winning his 99th cap. He made it to 100 in the next game. Anil Kumble retired after that Delhi match - his 132nd Test - leaving Laxman alongside Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar.
I'm always a little nervous about this sort of question, but it's true to say that as I write all 11 members of Australia's side in the first official one-day international, in Melbourne in January 1971, are still alive nearly 50 years on. Three of the England players - Colin Cowdrey, Basil D'Oliveira and John Hampshire - have sadly passed away.
