Q: What's the highest team score in a Test with no extras?

A :328. Made by Pakistan at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore in 1954/55
Q: What's the lowest Test total in which someone scored a century?

A: New Zealand's 159 against England at Jade Stadium, Christchurch in 1962/63 takes this record. John Reid (the elder) scored exactly 100.
Q: And what about in which someone scored a half-century?

A: Asanka Gurasinha's 59 out of Sri Lanka's 82 against India at Mohali in 1990/91 for this.
Q: What's the most wicketless balls bowled in a row in Tests?

A: Maurice Tate, a hugely successful bowler for England in the 1920s, could not get a wicket towards the end of the series in Australia in 1928/29, and also took a while to get his first in the summer of 1929's opening Test. He ended-up sending down 822 between wickets.
Q: Who has played the most Tests in a row without having to bat?

A: Indian tailender Maninder Singh would've been grateful to not be required for 4 games in a row in the 1986/87 season. The weather intervened to severely shorten several of these games, and India's powerful batting did the rest.
Q: Who has played the most Test innings' without being stumped?

A: Pakistan's Salim Malik was a judicious user of his feet to spinners, and it showed, as he batted 154 times in Tests and was never stumped once. Whether he ever gave a stumping chance that was missed is harder to say, however.
