Rod Marsh played 96 tests and scored just 3 test hundreds; Ian Healey 119 tests for his 4 test hundreds.
I was just reading that post and about to say the same. Test hundreds arenít easy to come by in any era. Shakib is an exceptional all rounder who doesnít get the credit he deserves.

He is without any doubt.

I've just noticed that Alastair Cook and Kannaur Rahul have each taken 13 catches in this series. This is the joint third best haul by fielders (as opposed to 'keepers) in Test history. Above them sit Greg Chappell with 14 during the 6 match Ashes series of 1974/5, and Jack Gregory with 15 in the 1920/21 Ashes (when he also made 442 runs and took 23 wickets).

So, one innings left for Rahul and nearly one innings and a half for Cook to equal, or maybe surpass, the great allrounder's record that has stood for almost a century.

It would be nice for Cook to bow out after equaling or breaking that record, not least because he has stood in the slips for England for so blinking long. If you were Andrew Samson I would ask you to count those hours ... With any luck England will declare none down in the second innings and take 14 more wickets in the match.

Yes, a not out ton for Cook and then the catching record!

He may have already equalled or surpassed the record had he held onto some of those fluffs earlier in the series. There are obviously no stats for how many Gregory and Chappell turfed, if any.

Well Rahul has already turned down the chance to level Chappell by dropping Mo yesterday.

Well Cook's innings/career alone could fill up a lengthy post on here, but I'd hold off writing it until Jimmy and Stu are done.

So will any England batsman surpass Cook's records of most runs and most centuries? Root might have a shot at the former, he's already halfway there after 6 years and 74 tests, but his poor conversion rate means he'll probably have to go some to match the latter.

Beyond Root, I can't see any other batsmen troubling the two records, especially as I think the amount of test cricket will start to decline in the near future.

I was thinking this recently too. In the last couple of decades there have been a lot of tests played and I wouldn't be surprised to see the format decline a bit, even for England.

So, Rahul finishes with 14 catches in the series, equal second best ever with Greg Chappell (who fielded through 11 innings to Rahul's 9).

Interesting little stat from India's innings yesterday, only the second time in Test history that a team has had two century partnerships but with no other passing 10.

few extra Anderson ones:

Most balls bowled by a pace bowler, 31500, (prob went last Walsh - 30019 - in the Pakistan series)

Most wickets caught by keeper - 155

c Cook b Anderson is the most frequent slip/pace bowler dismissal (40 times)

Indian bowler Shahbaz Nadeem has broken the record for best list A bowling figures, taking 10-4-10-8 in a recent Vijay Hazare trophy game.
