Q: Who has played the most innings' in Tests and not scored a double-century?
A :Alec Stewart (though he made twin centuries against West Indies at Kensington in 1994, almost certainly a far more notable achievement) never made a double-century in his 235 innings'. His regular team-mate and close companion Michael Atherton is not far behind, with 217. Stewart's best was 190; Atherton's 185*.
Q: Who batted the most (i.e., played the most innings') in Test cricket without being run-out?
A: Kapil Dev's 184 trips to the crease did not once see him walking back having been run-out. He is well clear of his nearest rival, Pakistan's Mudassar Nazar.
Q: Which spinner has taken the most Test wickets including no stumpings?
A: England all-rounder (and now chief selector) Geoff Miller took 60, and not a single one was stumped.
Q: Who captained the most Tests and lost the toss in all games?
A: England captain Rony Stanyforth (a token leader in every sense - he had never played a First-Class match for a county when he led England to South Africa and was picked purely because of the ambassadorial requirements for captains in his day) made four tosses and lost every one.
Q: Which fielder went longest between taking a catch?
A: England's opening batsman Peter Richardson took his maiden Test catch in his 3rd Test in 1956. He then went 23 without taking a single one, and when he did (in 1961/62) he promptly took another in the same game!
Q: Of those who have had two (or more) spells as captains, who went the longest between them in terms of time?
A: England seam bowler Gubby Allen, who led his side in Australia in 1936/37 (winning many plaudits for repairing some of the wounds opened-up by the Bodyline series in 1932/33), lost the captaincy upon returning home but did eventually lead England again. It was not, however, until 1948 - a gap of just a few days short of 11 years (10 years 345 days).
