Chanderpaul holds the overall record for having played first-class cricket on the most grounds - 116, one ahead of Tom Graveney and Mushtaq Mohammad. The former England captain MJK Smith played on 114 different grounds, his sometime Test team-mates Jim Parks and Peter Richardson on 113, and Dravid and Tendulkar on 112.

Off the top of my head.

Hes played the most balls without being dismissed. Dont remember the specifics, but I believe it was against India.

Plus against England he scored the most runs by a batsman to end up on a losing side.

Am sure there are a few more, but those 2 are the ones I remember

Things that the great man achieved..

Faced the most balls in test cricket without being dismissed.. 1000+ deliveries

Batted for the longest time without being dismissed.. think it was 1500+ minutes

Think he is the only WI skipper to score a ton on his captaincy debut

3rd fastest test century? Or somebody beat that?

Most run outs of batting partners? Or is that Helegance? smile

Most "selfish"?

Most Test centuries by a Guyanese, by a long way?

Most "cussed"?

You have to qualify that. Brian lara has made the most runs in a match and series where his team ended up on the losing. Chanderpaul has the highest aggregate total in losing causes
