    Who do you think was the best batsman to never score a test 50, 100, 150 and 200?

    I was surprised to find while reading about Douglas Jardine that his best score was only 127(even more surprised to find out he only actually got the one test ton)... does he qualify as the best bat to never hit a 150? I have no idea but he must be up there. FS Jackson's best was only 144 also




    so who holds these 4 titles?

    Was Jardine known for his batting prowess? I've only known him as the shrewd tactician.

    Just because I just saw their names in another thread title, but Mark and Damien for the 200?

    Not too sure of the others. Not many batsmen average decent without having a ton under their belt. Gillespie would qualify for all of it wasn't for his last innings haha.

    Barry Richards a good shout for the 150 & 200 category, but it does feel like picking him would be going against the spirit of the thread

    Kallis had a big hoopla about never scoring a double for the majority of his career.

    Best batsman to never score a 200 in Herbert Sutcliffe

    For the others it's really just good FC/ODI batsmen who for whatever reason didn't play many Tests, e.g. Michael Bevan doesn't have a Test ton

    Chetan Chauhan should be up there IMO. Scored more than 2000 runs as an opener without getting a hundred.

    Bruce Laird scored a few hundreds in WSC, and had a Test batting average of 35 with 50s off the West Indies pace quartet, but his top score in 21 Tests was 92.
