The highest score in Australia's second innings of 138 in Adelaide was just 20. Have there been any higher totals than this with no one making more than 20? asked Justin Thompson from Australia
That's a good spot, as Australia's 138 in Adelaide last week turns out to be the highest completed innings in which no one passed 20. The previous highest was 134, by Bangladesh against Pakistan in Multan in August 2001, when the best individual score was Mehrab Hossain's 19 (seven of his team-mates made double figures).
There have been 12 other all-out totals of 100 or more which did not feature an individual contribution above 20:
- 118 by New Zealand against Sri Lanka in Galle in 2012-13 (highest score 20 by Daniel Flynn)
- 114 by Australia v West Indies in Melbourne in 1988-89 (20 by David Boon and Allan Border)
- 110 by England v South Africa at Lord's in 1998 (Nasser Hussain 15)
- 107 by West Indies v Australia in Melbourne in 1930-31 (Ivan Barrow 17)
- 107 by Pakistan v Australia in Melbourne in 1989-90 (Ijaz Ahmed 19)
- 106 by Pakistan v West Indies in Bridgetown in 1957-58 (Imtiaz Ahmed 20
- 104 by Australia v England in the very first Test of all, in Melbourne in 1876-77 (20 by Tom Horan)
