Carrying the bat through innings- See Who has done it in Test Cricket?

While whole India was celebrating their amazing victory over SA in the 3rd test, a record Was created by SA opening batsman Elgar. He remained unbeaten on 86* in second ings

The term is mainly used when the innings closes after all 10 wickets have fallen or all10 wickets fall to close ings.

 

In short, an opening batsman survives the complete innings, he would literally be “carrying the bat” back to the pavilion.

 

More than 2000 tests are played in last 150 years.

This rare phenomena has occurred 53 times in 47 tests.

 

Desmond Haynes is the only man to have carried his bat through three Test innings.
