#241

Sangakarra


#242

To clarify. This is people who have kept and opened at the same time (think sangakarra,and maybe de Villiers and mccullum have kept and also opened but never in the same test)


#243

You’re all going for far too big names

Jos makes 7


#245

My reference is from 2012. This could end badly for me if there are more examples


#246

Adam Parore


#247

I’ve got a memory of an Indian dude about 10 years ago but buggered if I can recall his name


#248

Andy Flower perhaps…

Were there any pre-1980s? I remember growing up the wicketkeeper was a number 7 or 8 pretty much all the time.


#249

No Andy flower. There are 3 pre-90s, including the comfortable leading scorer of the list (with a great name)


#250

You can take N.R. Mongia (1994-2001) for that I reckon


#251

that’s kind, because i absolutely wasnt thinking of him. having googled i was thinking of parthiv patel.


#252

Couldn’t think of any, so I’ve made a cricinfo list (on-brand). I don’t think you will like it.


#253

I have just done this and become appalled by the list I was looking at.

Sorry everyone


#254

The top answer, that we (my mate) got right, is still Farokh Engineer (what a name!)


#255

Subthread OVER!


#256

:smiley: how many we talking?


#257

Loads


#258

402 innings by 85 batsmen.


#259

:grimacing:
parthiv patel in there? pretty good odds he is


#260

My favourite is DSBP Kuruppu. Hit an unbeaten double hundred on debut in 777 minutes, in his only innings opening, and only played 3 more tests after
