Dean Elgar Facts

  1. Dean’s test match debut, in November 2012, against Australia, was a rather disappointing affair. He was out for a duck (dismissed without scoring) in both of South Africa’s innings. He was the 38th batter in the history of test match cricket to have suffered this embarrassment on his test match debut. South Africa, though, went on to win the match by 309 runs and, thus, the 3-match test series by a margin of 1-0.
  2. In December 2015, he had become the first South African cricketer to ‘carry his bat’ (a phrase used to refer to an opening batter who has not been dismissed when the team’s innings is closed) in a test match since Gary Kirsten in 1997. He had scored 118 runs not out in a match against England.
  3. In January 2018, in a test match against India, he had repeated the feat and had become the first South African, since 1992, to ‘carry his bat’ twice in the test match format. Just 2 months later, in March 2018, he had achieved the rare feat again when he had scored 141 runs not out in a test match against Australia. This had made him the first batter in history to ‘carry his bat’ in an innings of a test match twice in a single calendar year. He had also become only the 2nd batter in history, after Desmond Haynes, to have achieved the feat thrice in the test match format.
  4. In March 2017, in a test match against New Zealand, he had become the 1st South African opening batter to have faced 200 or more balls in both the innings of a test match.
