No player has yet won a Test match in all 10 countries. Herer is a
progressive record. Neutral sites are excluded. Only the first wins in
each country are given.

First players to win a Test match in ONE country:
C Bannerman, NFD Thomson, TP Horan, DW Gregory, BB Cooper,

First player to win a Test match in TWO different countries:

Note: Stollmeyer's win in West Indies was at Kingston against England
in 1947-48. The rest of the matches were the same for all five listed
players.

Inzamam is therefore is pole position to be the first to win in 10
different countries, followed by Ponting (who will play in Pakistan in
February or March 2008).  India's next trip to New Zealand, and South
Africa's next trip to Australia, may be too far in the future to help
Dravid and Pollock.

Some additional lists might help - current Indian players who have won in 7
countries excluding England, Bangladesh and Australia, and Pakistanis who
have won in 8 countries excluding South Africa and India.

   Dravid, Inzamam, Kumble, Pollock and Ponting are still playing
   Test cricket. Let's examine their chances.

   Inzamam has an immediate chance of extending the record
   to winning in 10 different countries. Pakistan are currently
   touring South Africa and will play 3 Tests. I presume that with
   Akhtar's return, Pakistan have the bowling firepower to win atleast
   1 Test match in South Africa.

   It's more unlikely that Kumble would be playing Test cricket in
   February 2009 which is when India tour New Zealand to play
   3 Tests and 5 ODI's. It is a rather stupid scheduling given the
   fact that India last toured NZ in December 2002, which makes
   it a more than 6 year gap. Dravid might still be around in
   February 2008 and India might have a chance of winning
   a Test in NZ provided we don't get the kind of pitches we
   saw in December 2002.

   Ponting has a definite chance when Australia tour Pakistan
   in Feb 2008. However, a lot will depend on the new bowlers
   to replace McGrath and Warne and how well they can
   cope with the sub-continental pitches.

   South Africa tour Australia in December 2008 and it is too
   early to predict whether Pollock would still be a part of the
   South African side. Post 2002, South Africa have a poor
   record against Australia and will definitely be looking to
   improve on that.

I am not sure why Tendulkar's name is missing from this list
His away wins include
2nd Test  v SL  in SL  1993    at Colombo (SSC)
Only Test v BD  in BD  2000/01 at Dhaka
1st Test  v Zim in Zim 2001    at Bulawayo
2nd Test  v WI  in WI  2001/02 at Port of Spain
3rd Test  v Eng in Eng 2002    at Leeds
2nd Test  v Aus in Aus 2003/04 at Adelaide
1st Test  v Pak in Pak 2003/04 at Multan
1st Test  v SA  in SA  2006/07 at Johannesburg

Ganguly should also have the same countries on his list. His SL
win came on a tour sans Tendulkar, and his first Pak win was
the third test since he missed the Multan match.

Of course both SRT & SCG have won Tests at home.

I think Samarth's original email had included SRT, Dravid, Kumble
and Ganguly in it. NZ is the hole in the resume for all of these
Indian players.

Wouldn't Mark Waugh be the same as Healy since you have Akram and Salim
mentioned as well? Waugh and Healy achieved their 9th in the same Test,
ironically Healy's last. Waugh's wins in Australia and England came at
later times, but the other seven were the same to Healy's.

Langer won a Test in NZ for the first time in 2000 and Ponting won his
first Test Test in NZ in 2004. That's just off the top of my head.

What about the Sharjah matches, is there anyone in line for 11 countries ?

Inzamam and Ponting have also won in Sharjah so both have won in ten
countries.
