Ask the Spider: Ask the Spider #46

Q: Who has scored the most Test runs without making a half-century?

A :England's Fred Trueman wasn't the worst batsman you'll ever see - he was good enough to score 981 runs in his 67 Tests, and he made 3 First-Class centuries. But his top score for England was 39*.
Q: Has any bowler who has played 50 Tests gone through his entire Test career without going wicketless?

A: Yes, two people, and it's Trueman again who leads the way. He's joined by West Indian Joel Garner, who played 58 and got on the wicket tally in every one.
Q: Who and when was the first ever Match Referee?

A: Former England captain MJK Smith was the first to be given this position, in the 1991/92 Australia vs. India series.
Q: And who has Refereed the most matches?

A: Not surprisingly, the man widely regarded as the best in the business, by both ICC officials and the players - Sri Lanka's Ranjan Madugalle. He has more than double the number of games of the next man, Clive Lloyd, who has had several time-outs from his role to take on various positions with the WICB.
Q: What's the highest Test score where no batsman made a hundred-and-fifty?

A: 668, which Australia racked-up in 1955 at Kensington Oval. Seven batsmen made between 46 and 137, but Keith Miller, with the latter, was the top-scorer.
Q: Who has scored the most Test centuries without converting any to doubles?

A: Colin Cowdrey and Mohammad Azharuddin both made 22 Test centuries, but neither managed 200. Azharuddin was cruelly robbed, however - his best was 199. Cowdrey's best was 182.
