The Longest Duration Between Test Matches
Just recently I have been updating the test data for Russia. I came across a player who had a number of years between test matches.
Andrey Sorokin played v Italy ‘A’ in Bucharest 11 June 2008. I noticed his previous test match was v France Military 19 November 1995! I got my date calculator out and discovered there had been 12 years, 6 months and 23 days between those two test matches. Was it a record? Nearly. Here is the list below.
