Statistical Highlights of Test # 1835 - Old Trafford
by Vijay Jeedigunta
Jun 17, 2007
An amazing return catch by England’s latest bowling sensation Monty Panesar to dismiss debutant Sammy proved out to be the turning point of the West Indies chase for a record total for a win in the third test match played at Old Trafford. It not only changed the whole complexion of the contest but also left the subsequent happenings as a matter of academic interest. Had Sammy stayed at the wicket for another hour West Indies could have cruised to a miraculous victory and Sammy would have a made a dream all-rounder debut. But Panesar’s crucial breakthrough took all the tension out of Michael Vaughan’s mind and England clinched a series winning test victory at Old Trafford by 60 runs. Panesar for his first 10fer deservedly won the Man of the Match award.

A Test Match which had several statistical highlights like batsmen from opposing sides (Alastair Cook and Shivnarine Chanderpaul) hitting a century and a in the same test, Darren Sammy claiming seven wickets in an innings on test debut, Harmison crossing the 200 wicket milestone in test career and Monty Panesar ending a 10 year long period of an English spinner going without a 10-wicket haul in a test match, more than anything else the total number of extras conceded by a both teams came within six sundries of and all time record. Though West Indies’ fourth innings total was the highest in the test match they ended up losing the match like they did against India just a year back thus providing tenth such instance.

Here are the details of the statistical highlights of the test match #1835:

Darren Sammy’s second innings haul of 7 for 66 provides the 124th occasion of a test debutant claiming 5 or more wickets in an innings. He becomes the 9th West Indian to do so.

Its very rare that batsmen from opposing sides record a century and a fifty in the same test match. England’s Alastair Cook’s (60 & 106) and West Indies’ Shivanrine Chanderpaul’s (50 & 116*) provides 34th occurrence of a batsmen from each side of a test match hitting a fifty and a hundred in the same test match.

The combined total of extras conceded by both teams in this test came very close to the current record for the most number of extras totaled by both teams in a test match. The previous highest also involved West Indies when they along with Pakistan in the 1976-77 Bridgetown test combined to concede 173 extras.

When Steve Harmison had Jerome Taylor caught by England's batting hero Alastair Cook in the short leg for 11 he became the 11th English bowler to reach the 200 wicket milestone in a test career. He now becomes the 52nd cricketer in test cricket to take 200 or more wickets in a test career.

Final Tidbit: Darren Sammy now becomes the 2,486th cricketer to play in test cricket and 266th from West Indies.
