Five batsmen have been left stranded on 99* in a test match. Strangely enough this is a fairly recent phenomenon.

The unlucky batsmen are Geoff Boycott, Steve Waugh, Alex Tudor, Shaun Pollock and Andrew Hall.

While four of them managed test centuries, 99* is the highest test score for Alex Tudor.

Mike Atherton once declared England’s innings and left Graeme Hick stuck on 98*.

Andy Flower of Zimbabwe was left on 199* against South Africa (he added 142 in the second innings for good measure), and the greatest of them all Sir Don Bradman was once left stranded on 299*.
