Q: Has a Test match ever included the opening four batsmen all being out for ducks?

A :Yes, Australia vs England, second innings at Old Trafford in 1888. Two other batsmen failed to score, and not surprisingly England enjoyed an innings victory.
Q: Mohammad Azharuddin, banned for life for match-fixing, therefore scored a century in his first and last Test innings - has this ever been achieved before?

A: Yes, by Australia's Greg Chappell.
Q: Who holds the record for first-class catches?

A: Overall the record is held by England wicket keeper Bob Taylor with 1,473. For non-WKs, Frank Woolley held most catches, with 1,018.
Q: Who played in most Tests before becoming captain?

A: Australia's Steve Waugh, 111 Tests.
Q: What's the highest total in a Test match to not include a 50?

A: The record is 315 by England vs West Indies, 2nd innings, Port of Spain, 1985-86 (top score was David Gower with 47). The highest in First-Class cricket is 359 by Middlesex vs Surrey in 1949, with five scores in the 40s, including Sydney Brown on 49.
Q: What is the highest innings total in Test cricket in which the team scored the same number of runs in both innings?

A: In the second Test between India and Pakistan in 2005, India scored 407 all out followed by 407-9.
