Only Virat Kohli and one other batsman had four hundred in an IPL season
Test Cricket’s Record-Breaking Catches: Who Holds the Most?
In the IPL this year, Shubman Gill has scored three hundred. Who has performed better than this? Indian Akbar Mithun was questioned.
Shubman Gill’s outstanding performance for the Gujarat Titans, who finished second in the IPL, earned him the orange cap and 890 runs. He scored three hundred in four innings, including 101 against Sunrisers in Ahmedabad, 104 not out against RCB in Bengaluru, and 129 against Mumbai Indians in Ahmedabad after scoring 42 in the first playoff game. He scored 94 not out against Lucknow Super Giants in Ahmedabad two games before this run.
Gill came close to breaking the record set by Jos Buttler for the Rajasthan Royals in 2022 after Virat Kohli’s four centuries for the RCB in 2016. In a single IPL, no one else has scored more than two centuries. With 973 and 863 runs, respectively, at the end of both seasons, Kohli and Buttler held the record for the two most incredible season totals in IPL history until yesterday. With 890 runs, Gill is presently ranked second on that list.
Test Match Moments for the most runs
The hitters who scored the most runs during an IPL season are listed below.
In the two Test matches that England played in South Africa in 2019–20, 33 catches were made. Are these the most results from one Test? Asked South African Francois de Bruyn
In that 2019–20 series, 33 catches were made out of a potential 40 during the second Test in Cape Town and the fourth Test in Johannesburg (only 38 wickets were lost at Newlands).
There are two other 33s: one by West Indies and South Africa in Gros Islet, St. Lucia in 2021 and one by Australia and India in Perth in 1991–1992 when only 36 wickets were lost. Additionally, there are two 34s, both occurring in Test matches played in South Africa: one against Australia in Cape Town in 2017–18 and the other against Pakistan in Johannesburg the following year.
However, the Test record for catches is 35 wickets; in Australia vs. India match in Adelaide in 2018–19, the final 23 wickets were all out caught. Here is a list of Test matches with the most catches.
I WAS SHOCKED when I learned that Moeen Ali had collected as many as 195 Test wickets. But has anyone taken more wickets at a more excellent average than his, which was over 36? British Brad McKenzie was questioned.
You are correct that Moeen Ali took 195 wickets in 64 Test matches. Among them were his 10 for 112 against South Africa at Lord’s in 2017 and his hat-trick in the series’ final Test at The Oval. Additionally, Moeen amassed 2914 runs, including five centuries.
His total bowling average of 36.66 is the highest among bowlers who have taken as many wickets; Pakistani legspinner Danish Kaneria is second with 261 doors at the cost of 34.79 each. The only bowlers with 150 or more Test wickets at averages higher than Moeen’s are the West Indian speedster Fidel Edwards (165 at 37.87) and the Indian slow left-armer Ravi Shastri (151 at 40.96).
At Lord’s in 1957, Trevor Bailey reportedly disregarded all three Ws. How many other bowlers in the same game managed to defeat this illustrious trio? England’s Jamie Williams was questioned.
Accounting for the three Ws, Clyde Walcott, Everton Weekes, and Frank Worrell, who frequently appeared in the middle order for West Indies in the 1950s, was quite a task. Trevor Bailey removed all three as the West Indies were skittled for 127 on the first day of the second Test at Lord’s in 1957. England went on to win by an innings after he had taken 7 for 44. Another Englishman, the legspinner Doug Wright, accomplished this feat at The Oval in 1950. He was the only other bowler to eliminate all three Ws in a single Test innings.
Moeen Ali has taken 195 Test wickets at an average of 36.66, which is the most of anybody.
In the same Test, albeit not in the same innings, three other bowlers also got all three Ws. The first two occurred in Australia in 1951–1952. Legspinner Doug Ring caught them all in the opening Test at Brisbane, and offspinner Ian Johnson followed suit in the next match in Sydney. The England fast bowler Peter Loader dismissed all three in the fourth Test at Headingley shortly after Bailey’s triple in 1957. Loader had a successful match, scoring a hat-trick in an innings win.
Several knowledgeable individuals have provided an update on the query from last week concerning Test cricketers who have competed in the Olympics:
Three people have been added to the list, including two women. Lesley Murdoch of New Zealand participated in 25 ODI matches in addition to six women’s Test matches in 1989–1990, three of which she captained. Murdoch was a New Zealand women’s hockey team member that competed in the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics and placed sixth.
Rebecca Rolls was a custodian representing New Zealand in Olympic football at the 2012 and 2016 Games. However, she didn’t play. In one Test match, she scored 71 against England at Scarbrough in 2004. She also made two hundred in 104 ODI appearances.
The third inclusion is South African Lionel “Doodles” Tapscott, who competed in the tennis competition at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics and played two Tests against England almost ten years later, scoring 50 unbeaten on his debut in Johannesburg. While his sister Billie scandalised the Wimbledon tennis competition in 1927 by being the first woman to compete there without stockings, his brother George “Dusty” Tapscott also played Test cricket.
There are several other close calls besides Suzie Bates, who was mentioned last week (she played basketball in the 2008 Olympics and 291 white-ball cricket internationals for New Zealand, but no Tests). If South Africa had qualified, Jonty Rhodes might have played hockey for his country in the 1992 Olympics. He was also contacted about being selected for the 1996 Olympics, but the cricket authorities were unwilling to let him go.
Tazmin Brits, a current South African athlete who won the women’s javelin gold medal at the 2007 World Junior Championships, was scheduled to compete in the 2012 London Olympics. However, not long before the games began, she was involved in a severe car accident that left her in the hospital for two months and confined to a wheelchair for another two. In 2018, she made her debut in international cricket.
Regarding cricket, SM Hadi represented India by competing in tennis at the 1920 Antwerp Olympics. He was also talented enough to play a few matches on the 1936 tour of England, for which he was nominally the assistant manager and an unofficial Test match for India in 1935–36. It is not meant to be a comprehensive list of individuals who just missed out, so if you know anyone else who played Test cricket and participated in the Olympics, please let me know!
