List of New Zealand Test cricket records

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of New Zealand Test cricket records. It is based on the List of Test cricket records, but concentrates solely on records dealing with the New Zealand Test cricket team, and any cricketers who have played for that team.

New Zealand took part in their first recognised Test cricket match against England in the 1929/30 season, and the records listed here date from that time.

Listing criteria

In general the top ten are listed in each category (except when there is a tie for the last place among the ten, when all the tied record holders are noted).

Listing notation

Team Notation

  • (300/3) indicates that a team scored 300 runs for three wickets and the innings was closed, either due to a successful run chase or if no playing time remained.
  • (300/3 d) indicates that a team scored 300 runs for three wickets, and declared its innings closed.
  • (300) indicates that a team scored 300 runs and was all out, either by losing all ten wickets or by having one or more batsmen unable to bat and losing the remaining wickets.

Batting Notation

  • (100) indicates that a batsman scored 100 runs and was out.
  • (100*) indicates that a batsman scored 100 runs and was not out.

Bowling Notation

  • (5/100) indicates that a bowler has captured 5 wickets while giving away 100 runs.
