By default, the shading indicates records from the past week, or failing that, the most recent entry.
Adjust: most recent | past week | past month | past 6 months | past year | 4 years

Performances in matches that overlap decades are credited to the year in which they occurred - this results in some unknown data, especially in regard to bowling figures

South Africa v Sri Lanka at Durban, 1st Test, Feb 13-16, 2019 [Test # 2347]
