Most consecutive innings without a duck

Hello again:

Here's a table showing the batsman who achieved the most
consecutive Test innings without being dismissed for 0.
Interesting to see how several batsmen that could be
considered "mercurial" e.g. Gower, de Silva and Mark
Waugh, figure quite highly on the list.

 DI Gower        ENG   119  26 Aug 1982 - 26 Dec 1990
 AR Border       AUS    89  26 Nov 1982 - 24 Dec 1988
 PA de Silva      SL    75  23 Aug 1984 - 20 Oct 1994
 CH Lloyd         WI    74   3 Jun 1976 -  9 Nov 1984
 KF Barrington   ENG    73  29 Dec 1962 - 28 Mar 1968

 GM Turner        NZ    72  27 Feb 1969 - retired
 HW Taylor       RSA    72  27 May 1912 - 12 Feb 1932
 KD Walters      AUS    68  12 Dec 1969 -  1 Jan 1977
 G Boycott       ENG    67  21 Aug 1969 -  6 Jan 1979
 WR Hammond      ENG    67  17 Aug 1929 -  4 Dec 1936

 HA Gomes         WI    66  31 Mar 1978 - 29 Mar 1985
 ME Waugh        AUS    63  23 Jan 1993 - 26 Dec 1996
 APE Knott       ENG    62  20 Jun 1974 - retired
 GR Marsh        AUS    62  18 Sep 1986 - 25 Jan 1991
 AJ Stewart      ENG    60  17 Mar 1994 - ?

 GA Gooch        ENG    60  21 Jun 1990 - 16 Jun 1994
 RB Richardson    WI    60  11 Dec 1987 - 25 Jul 1991
 GA Hick         ENG    59  19 Feb 1993 - ?
 AJ Lamb         ENG    58   2 Jan 1983 - 21 Aug 1986
 MA Taylor       AUS    58  23 Mar 1991 - 28 Sep 1994

Best for other countries:

Interesting to see who has the most number of consecutive innings
without a duck since debut. I checked Dravid...he has about 30 innings
since debut without a duck. What do the stats of other current players
look like w.r.t first duck? My guess is Chanders would be quite high on
that list. His first duck was against Pak in the first Test recently,
his 34th innings.
SRT got his first duck in his 5th Test, SMG in his 7th.
