Team records

Team wins, losses, and draws

A tie can occur when the scores of both teams are equal at the conclusion of play, provided that the side batting last has completed their innings.[1] Only two matches have ended in a tie in Test cricket history, neither of which involved Sri Lanka.[2]

Result records

A Test match is won when one side has scored more runs than the total runs scored by the opposing side during their two innings. If both sides have completed both their allocated innings and the side that fielded last has the higher aggregate of runs, it is known as a win by runs. This indicates the amount of runs that they had scored more than the opposing side. If one side scores more runs in a single innings than the total runs scored by the other side in both their innings, it is known as a win by innings and runs. If the side batting last wins the match, it is known as a win by wickets, indicating the amount of wickets that were still to fall.[1]

Wicketkeeping records

A wicketkeeper can assist in the dismissal of a batsman by taking a catch or stumping.[24] A catch taken by the wicketkeeper means the batsman will be ruled out caught, although it may be referred to as "caught behind". A stumping occurs when the wicketkeeper catches a ball delivered by the bowler (provided it is a legal delivery) and putting down the batsman's wicket while he is out of his ground.[25]
