    In terms of specialist batsmen, Chetan Chauhan generally opened the batting in his 68 test innings, but never made a ton.

    Other specialist batsmen to have never made a ton include:

    Mike Brearley*- 66 inns.

    Bruce Laird- 40 inns.


    *Although it could be argued that Brearley was a specialist captain rather than a specialist bowler....

    Ok. Andy Lloyd played one test for England in 1984, and opened the batting in his only innings, scoring 10*.
    Might've played more tests except Marshall hit him in the head.

    Bloke can't even spell his own first name properly; he's clearly two-bob.

    For Monk: is your first name Harry?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    What's the latest point in an ODI/T20 someone came in and hit a ton?
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    He's also a very sad individual - first won the old Wisden Cricket Monthly Christmas Quiz when he was about 8

    Did Stuart Law get out in the only innings he played? I think not..

    Also, I think there should be many one test wonders who batted at No 11 and didn't get out in that match..

    Stuart Law never opened. The question was name the player who opened in a Test and was never given out, in any innings.
