RJ Burns took his appointed place on the short list of those who have batted on all 5 days of a Test:
In some cases there would have been curtailment of play, but some play was possible on each of the 5 days. This does not include Tests which finished in 4 or less days. While there have been Tests played over 6 or more days, there is no such instance there.
Oddly enough, this did not occur until 1960 and Jaisimha had the record to himself until 1977. Several others followed Boycott in quick succession, although there was a 15-year gap between 1984 and 1999.
The lowest totals are by Pujara (74) followed by Jaisimha with 94.
In at least one case, the player (Boycott) can be said to have played a major role in his team’s win. There are some where his team lost (Lamb, Griffith, Burns).
One thought on “Batting on all 5 days of a Test”
Boycott was the slowest!!!!!!!
