Century on debut and not even a fifty again

Data correct up to Sep 16, 2019:

We have already seen the list of those who scored a century on debut and never scored a century again: https://abn397.wordpress.com/2019/09/26/century-on-debut-and-never-again/

Many of them did at least score some fifties after their debut. Some did not. Here is the list of these 19 unfortunates:

Century on debut and no fifty ever again.JPG

First is C Bannerman, the first Test century-maker.

The most recent is TA Blundell, who is likely to play again.

The most Tests played here is 12 by van Zyl followed by 10 by DR Smith and 9 by FC Hayes.

Ganteaume played in only one Test (in fact only one innings).

Hartigan and Blundell played 2.

The highest scores here are by Kuruppu (201*), Fawad Alam (168), Khalid Ibadulla (166) and Bannerman (165*)

Pataudi (Sr) played 3 Tests each for England and India. He is probably the only captain here.

The Test debutants of 2017

Here we review the good performances by those who made their Test debut in 2017.

A century and a near century. While Blundell has played only one Test after his debut, Markram continued to score well in his subsequent matches. As of Jan 31, 2018 he has a Test average of 52.00 with 2 centuries and 2 fifties. Pandya has not been so consistent, though he has an average of 33.00 with a century and 2 fifties. The others have not done much until now, though we may soon hear more about them.

We also look at debutants who scored:
