    I believe you are talking about Jock Cameron? Died at age 30. (BTW, he never topped aggregate and average for a series)


    The Answer is
    1.Dennis Lindsay (1966-1967 RSA vs AUS) (606 runs @ 86.57)
    2. Adam Gilchrist (2001-2002 RSA vs AUS) (473 runs @ 157.67)
    3. Kumar Sangakarra (if he kept) (2001-2002 Asian Championships) (248 runs @ 149.00)
    4. Sangakarra did it again in 2004 vs RSA (367 @ 91.75)
    5. Sangakarra again in 05/06 vs WI (197 @ 65.67)
    6. Sangakarra (again) 06/07 vs NZ (268 @134)
    7. Sangakarra again this year vs Bangladesh (428 @ 428)
    8. Gilly did it again vs NZ in 05 (343 @ 171.50)
    Should i go on?

    Gilly was the other in my mind. Quite impressive that Sang and Gilly did it more than once.
    So, we have 3 wk...I doubt there's any more...is there ?
    Even so, it is exemplary batting

    Someone go

    The original question was

    Who are the only 2 (?) wicket-keepers to lead the batting aggregates and averages in a Test series of 3+ matches for both sides ?
    None of these series (except Lindsay) had more than three Tests.

    I had posted three others after mentioning Lindsay, then deleted them after reading the question again - Gilchrist in SA, Flower in SL 1999-00 and Imtiaz Ahmed v NZ 1955-56

    My bad. By 3+, I meant 3 or more Tests, but could see how that could have been misinterpreted. Anyhoo, brought forth much valuable info.

    Buddhi Kunderan was the leading run scorer for India in 1963-64 home series against England with 525 runs at 52,5 but he was second in averages to an unlikely Bapu Nadkarni who had 5 not outs in 8 innings.

    Thanks for the welcome Archie. I havent been well but will visit off and on.

    At least five keepers have led the batting averages in a series of 3 or more tests. Three of them were 5 test series.

    Keeper.........Runs.....Average.......Tests......S eries....Against
    Alexander......484.........60.5.............5..... ....1960-61.........AUS
    Lindsay.........606.........86.6.............5.... ......1966-67........AUS
    Healy............356.........59.3.............5... .......1996-97........WIN
    Gilchrist.........473........157.7............3... .......2001-2002.....SAF
    Flower...........388.........97.0.............3... .......1999-2000......SRL

    Add one more five test achievement to that.

    Waite scored 362 runs at 40.2 against Australia in a five test series in 1957-58.

    That makes six in all and four in a five test series.

    Its that man Jacobs again !!

    Again with exactly 317 runs
    and again against South Africa
    and again in a five test series
    but at 45.3 and this time away from home.

    Its seven and nine now. Think we still might touch double figures
