    Most matches per international stint

    Who holds this record in tests? Also in one dayers though it would be more difficult to calculate it.

    Let me explain myself. If a player plays 70 tests in his career without being dropped/missing a match or row of matches consecutively for whatever reason the answer for him would be 70 divided by 1 which is 70.

    If a player is dropped once, it would by 70 divided by two which is 35.

    Now how many matches a player misses when he is dropped is irrelevent here.

    This would make a very interesting list.

    Also at the opposite end of the list - people with the lowest such stat having played a certain no of matches - would it be M.Amarnath or some one else..

    Its definitely Dravid. His run almost ended with the fever he had going into the 2nd test vs. SL but he played. Amazing record.

    Border played 153 tests in a row missing none through injury?

    Odd why Dravid's name isn't there. The fact that he hasn't missed a test since debut was mentioned in an article somewhere.

    Yeah, that list could be somewhat dated. I just did a Google search and found that page. Obviously, for past players, the number of games listed would be unaffected. However, some present players may have worked their way into that list.

    I always thought that Ian Healy was quiet high up on that list....
    He was replaced by Phil Emery once but I think that was in a OD. Even if it was in a test match I think that's a pretty amazing stat for a keeper, seeing they often have high rights of injuries.

    Healy missed one Test, which Emery played in. Furthermore, Gilchrist has not missed a Test since his debut way back in 1999.

    Unfortunately it looks as if Dravid is going to miss out on 100 consecutive tests let alone any hopes of some day beating Border. Cricinfo says he is likely to miss the next test.

    I suppose Gilchrist has a decent chance of getting the record though if his present slump continues it's far from certain he will be round for the 6-7 years it would take. Among the younger players I would imagine Graham Smith has the best shot though I don't know how many consecutive tests he has racked up.

    Overall Border's record is truly amazing and surely deserves to be added to the list of the safest cricket records out there.
