Tino BEST - West Indies - Test Record

Tino Best is pictured above in full flow during the 1st Test against England at Lord's in July 2004. Following the

2nd Test against Bangladesh, at Barbados in July 2009, Best disappeared from the Test match scene for 3 years

only to return in quite extraordinary fashion against England in June 2012. It was the 3rd Test at Edgbaston which

saw Best play one of the more remarkable innings in the history of the game; coming in at number 11 to join

Denesh Ramdin at the crease, Tino was finally out with the score on 426, by which time he had amassed 95 runs.

Agonising though it must have been to fall 5 runs short of becoming the first number 11 in Test match history to

register a century, Best could, at least, console himself with the fact that it was still a Test record for a number 11,

eclipsing by 20 runs the previous best by Zaheer Khan against Bangladesh in 2004. Tino's stunning innings lasted

138 minutes and saw him face 112 balls, scoring no less than 14 fours and 1 six. Best's final wicket partnership with

Ramdin of 143 runs was a new West Indies record for the 10th wicket, beating the previous record of 106 between

Carl Hooper and Courtney Walsh against Pakistan in Antigua in 1993, and the third highest in Test match history.

For good measure he also chipped in with 2-37 but due to awful weather conditions the match finished in a draw.
