First-Class Oldest Batsman to Score a Double Hundred

Back To: Records->First_Class->Overall->Batting

 

The ages given are ages on the first day of the match

The exact dates of birth of some cricketers have not been, or cannot be, verified. The details in the following list are based on the best information currently available, but - especially, though certainly not exclusively, in the cases of cricketers from the 18th and earlier 19th centuries, and those from Pakistan and Bangladesh - they should be treated with appropriate caution. Where only a year of birth is known, the stated age is based on an assumed birthdate of 1 January, or (where known) the date of the player's christening.
