Hope that you have read the first part.
Now we go on to the most neglected aspect of statistics – stumpings.
Most stumpings in an innings (4 and above):
The record is 5 by KS More, when he worked in tandem with Hirwani on his 16-wicket debut in 1987-88.
The previous record was shared by Australia’s Bert Oldfield, (the stumping champion whose 52 victims in the 1920s and 1930s are still a record) and India’s PK Sen (during India’s first-ever Test win in 1951-52, which coincided with the passing of King George VI).
While PK Sen was not as well known as Oldfield, he had his moments as in this Test against England. He also appears in trivia questions as the only Indian Test player who was born in a place which is now in Bangladesh. There were several who were born in places which are now in Pakistan, starting with Naoomal of the 1932 team (Karachi).
Then there is:
Most stumpings in a match (4 and above):
Oldfield dominates this list as one would expect. However, Sen had the record of 5 after that Test in 1951-52. More took over in 1987-88.
Also note V Rajindernath who took 4 stumpings and no catches in his only Test. He did not get to bat either, and thus he and JCW McBryan are the only ones who did not bat or bowl in their Test career. But McBryan did not take a catch.
We also look at the most stumpings in a career (20 and above):
Oldfield and Evans lead, with Dhoni in 3rd place and Kirmani in 4th. The only other current player here is Sarfaraz Ahmed, though he is yet to catch up with his countrymen Wasim Bari and Kamran Akmal.
