View Full Version : Lowest innings with no ducks and the most boring of all by steven lynch

I noticed that in Bangladesh's innings of 89 against Sri Lanka recently none of the batsmen failed to score. Is this the lowest Test total without a duck? asked Brett Scarffe from Australia

Rather surprisingly, Bangladesh's performance in the first Test in Colombo (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/slvbdesh/engine/match/293478.html) a couple of weeks ago was not the lowest Test innings not to feature a duck: it actually comes in third on that particular list, behind two instances by Australia. At Adelaide (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1950S/1951-52/WI_IN_AUS/WI_AUS_T3_22-25DEC1951.html) in 1951-52 they were shot out for 82 by West Indies, with Arthur Morris making the lowest score of 1, but even that isn't quite the record: in 1949-50, South Africa bowled Australia out for 75 at Durban (http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1940S/1949-50/AUS_IN_RSA/AUS_RSA_T3_20-24JAN1950.html). Colin McCool scored 1, and five separate batsmen made 2 (and another one 2 not out). There was a happy ending for the Aussies, though: they trailed by 236 on the first innings, but ended up winning by five wickets.
