Least # of tests (consecutive/non-consecutive) to get 100 wkts

Least # of tests (consecutive/non-consecutive) to get 100 wkts

Post by Ali Mir » Thu, 01 Sep 1994 10:02:55


Curious as to what are the fewest number of tests, both consecutive and non
-consecutive, played in order to get 100 test wickets.  Since any bowler with
100+n wickets can conceivably be on the list n times, let's restrict the list
to one occurence per bowler.

Since Hadlee has the most 10 wkt/match and 5 wkt/inn hauls, I would expect him
to be at the top of second list (non-consecutive) for sure and pretty damn high
on the first one (probably between his 150th and 350th wkts?).  Where do W&W,
the West Indians, and Lillie etc. stack up? Are there _any_ spinners on this
list?

As far as I can tell, the record for 100 wickets in the least number of
consecutive Tests during the career is 12 by none other than the greatest
bowler that ever lived - S.F.Barnes. He actually bowled in only 11 of those.
George Lohmann (14) and Waqar Younis (15) are the next two on the list. The
best Hadlee could manage was 16 Tests.

Gee, is that all. Gawd knows why we put up with him!  :)

P.S: Scorecards for CRICINFO coming. I've checked them for errors, but that
     doesn't guarantee anything!!
