There are only 6 occasions when a Test innings score has been doubled after the 9th wicket fell:
Interestingly, this first happened over 100 years after the first Test.
5 of these 6 instances have come since 2011. No 11 batsmen have become more skilled in handling collapses 🙂
The Hughes-Agar partnership is the highest (163) and has the best ratio of (10th wicket partnership) / (sum of 1st to 9th wicket partnerships): 1.393
Agar’s 98 remains the best at No 11 in all Tests. He was making his debut (as a pure bowler).
At the other end of the scale, Roach and Cummins just succeeded in equalling the 50 made by the first 9 wickets.
There are two instances (Lyon and Murtagh) where the No 11 batsman was the top scorer of the innings.
The only such effort which did not end in a loss was the one in 1980. It did avert a likely defeat.
Next we will come to doubling after the 8th and 7th wickets fell.
