Captains who drew everything and never drew anything

We have seen the Test captains who won all their Tests, did not win any of their Tests, lost all their Tests and did not lose any Test.

Finally we look at the last categories of those who drew all their Tests and did not draw any Test.

Captains who drew all their Tests:

All draws

An unlikely leader who drew all 4 Tests in India’s 1989-90 tour of Pakistan. That was generally a dull series, though it did see the debuts of Sachin Tendulkar and Waqar Younis.

Then there are Majid Khan and Saeed Ahmed who drew all their 3 Tests. Strange when we we remember that Srikkanth and Majid were among the more aggressive batsmen of their time.

There are many others (mainly stand-ins) who drew the 1 or 2 Tests they captained in. The better-known are Bardsley, Murray, Kirsten, Headley, Lindwall and Graveney. Headley should have captained the West Indies earlier but for the earlier policy of having one captains of European descent.

And finally:

Captains who never drew any of their Tests:

Never drew

There are a total of 85 captains in this category. We are listing the 27 who captained in 4 or more Tests.

There are those who won all (Bacher and Hawke) and those who lost all (the two Khaleds of Bangladesh, today’s KC Brathwaite and DK Gaekwad of earlier times).

And there are those who won some and lost some but never drew-such as the leaders Waqar Younis (10 wins, 7 losses) and Shakib al Hasan (3 wins, 11 losses).

Perhaps they deserve credit for their determination to get results rather than draws.
