KP has passed 4000 test runs this game as well and 1000 for 2008. Poor old Ian Bell still needs 52 for 3000.

Inda v. England 2nd test 19-23 December 2008 Mohali

In this test match more batsmen have passed 1000 runs for the calendar year:

Gautem Gambhir 1037
Kevin Pietersen 1015

This is a good match for Pietersen. He is the first England player to pass 1000 runs this year and it's the third consecutive year in which he has achieved this feat.

Pietersen also passed 4000 test runs in his career when he reached 105 today, in his 45th test match. He is the third fastest England batsman to do so. Herbert Sutcliffe did it in his 43rd test match and Len Hutton in his 44th.

Herbert Sutcliffe keeps popping up in this thread. KP is in very good company with these two legends.

Pietersen is actually the fastest test batsman to 4000 runs in terms of time from debut but that's a function of the amount of cricket he's played as much as his outrageous talent.

In terms of matches KP's achievement looks impressive but he's taken 83 innings which isn't so great.

Slower than Wally Hammond and Ken Barrington.

He's fifteenth in the world to reach 4000 runs in terms of innings played.

Somehow I forgot to record on this thread the small matter of India achieving the fourth highest total by any team in the fourth innings to win the first test.

Some less exciting records;

Pietersen and Cook put on 103 runs - their fourth century partnership.
Pietersen and Flintoff put on 149. Only their second century partnership. They haven't often batted together and flourished at the same time.

Or the 5th highest total as it is now thanks to SA.

Sorry, I've not being studying the SA/Aus match in any detail. Well, that must make us feel a lot better, so thanks Aidan.

And I think he is only the fourth England batsman to do so, pass 1000 runs for three consecutive years, that is, but don't know who the other three are.

And he remains the only England player to do so this year. Strauss got to 972 and could have made it if India had given England a run chase.

James Anderson took 46 wickets for the year, narrowly failing to equal Sidebotttom's tally of 47. Panesar is next with 39. But Sidebottom did it in just 8 matches, compared to Anderson with 11 and Panesar 12.

Can't give their final positions until all the other test matches this year have been completed.

Likewise with the leading run scorers.

One of them is Trescothick in 2003, 2004 and 2005.

I'm wondering if the record was by a player from any team? I'm having trouble finding three other players who have done it, full stop. I'm using Howstat! There was Lara in the same years as Trescothick. And my eyes are now going funny.

I'd be astonished if Tendulkar, Dravid, Ponting and Lara haven't all done it.

Not for three consecutive years, they haven't. But they have passed 1000 runs several times. Try looking at this which has been arranged by year. Ponting, for example, did it in 2002, 3 and 5 but not in 2004.
