Clearly I worded the Q wrongly. Oops. It should have been simply "openers topscoring in all 4 innings"

Openers the highest scorers in all four Test innings (40 wickets falling):

Eng (435 - GA Gooch 154) & (158 - MA Atherton 70) v NZ (249 - TJ Franklin 66) & (230 - JG Wright 46), Edgbaston, 1990

NZ (222 - BA Pocock 85) & (273 - BA Young 62) v SL (170 - RS Mahanama 45) & (205 - RS Mahanama 65), Hamilton, 1996-97

Aus (253 - SM Katich 80) & (334 - SM Katich 82) v Pak (148 Salman Butt - 63) & (289 Salman Butt - 42), Lord’s, 2010

SAf (311 - D Elgar 141*) & (373 - AK Markram 84) v Aus (255 - CT Bancroft 77) & (107 - DA Warner 32), Cape Town, 2017-18

In the 4th Test in Joburg in the recent SAf v Aus series, SAf made 488 in their first innings, which included 6 x 50+ partnerships.

For a score below 500 this has only happened 3 other times in Tests. When?

Total under 500 including 6 x 50+ stands:

The original Q turned out to be an even rarer event, with just the 1990 and 2017-18 instances.

All 4 openers the highest scorers in all four Test innings (40 wickets falling):


Eng (435 - GA Gooch 154) & (158 - MA Atherton 70) v NZ (249 - TJ Franklin 66) & (230 - JG Wright 46), Edgbaston, 1990

In the recent series in NZ (NZ v Eng) Trent Boult and Tim Southee took all 10 wickets in the 1st innings of both Test matches. This was only the 3rd time in Test history that a pair of opening bowlers took all 10 wickets between them in the 1st innings of consecutive Tests.

Interestingly, Ferris and Turner combined to take nine wickets in the first innings of the next Test. The 10th dismissal was a ‘run out’.

In the 4th Test at Jo'burg v SAf, Aus made 221 in the first innings. This is the lowest completed total in Tests featuring 3 individual 50s.

Can you name the other 3 instances of completed totals under 240 featuring 3 individual 50s?

Completed Test innings under 240 featuring 3 individual 50s:

Aus (221) v SAf, Johannesburg, 2017-18 - UT Khawaja 53; TD Paine 62; PJ Cummins 50
