Arbit Stats #50: Adam Voges

614 - Number of Test runs scored by Adam Voges between dismissals, a new record surpassing Sachin Tendulkar's tally of 497 attained in 2004.

After unbeaten knocks of 269 and 106 against West Indies Vogeas was finally dismissed by New Zealand's Mark Craig but not before he had plundered 239 runs against them. This is one of those freakish records which only cricket can have. The only analogue in any other sport would be the number of minutes between goals scored against a particular keeper.

Way to go for Adam Voges, who does seem to be making up for lost time after making such a late Test debut.

P.S. Sachin Tendulkar's tally includes the infamous 194*, when Dravid declared. (Just Saying).
