    How about most Test runs without a first-class wicket? Most of the great batsmen have been at least decent part-timers.

    Wasim Akram - most MOTM awards - 17, after Wasim comes Kallis, Murali & Warne, all with 16, then Ambrose, S Waugh & Ponting with 14.

    Strangely enough, Tendulkar only has 10

    Sorta blows the idea out of the Water that bowlers don't received enough recognition in MOTM awards doesn't it?

    note. Test Matches only

    Of the youngest players to ever score a century in test match cricket, the 11 youngest are ALL from the Sub-Continent.

    I know, just thought I would point it out.

    Geraint Jones has gone 51 test innings without scoring a duck.

    well here's two :

    1. Who on his test debut batting at No XI for his country was his country's highest scorer in the innings ?

    2.He played for the rebel Windies against South Africa in the 80's and then played for England against the official Windies

    (hint Both were in the 80's)
