Miguel Cummins.

West Indies tail-end batsman Miguel Cummins achieved an unwanted record on Saturday when he faced 45 deliveries and spent 95 minutes at the crease without scoring a run before being dismissed on the third day of the Antigua Test against India.

It was the second longest innings in Test cricket by a player without scoring.

The longest innings without scoring is by New Zealand’s Geoff Allott who batted for 101 minutes before getting out for a duck against South Africa in 1999.

India’s bowlers had to dig deep to take the last two wickets on Saturday at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. West Indies captain Jason Holder found good support from Cummins as they put on 41 for the ninth wicket before being dismissed for 222.

For India, veteran seamer Ishant Sharma had earlier picked up five wickets. Also, pacer Jasprit Bumrah became the fastest Indian pacer to 50 Test wickets – in 11 matches.
