Most fifty in test match and ODI career by a batsman?
The thing to understand here is that "fifty" and "century" are different on cricket scoreboards. A batsman touches 50 runs individually during a match, he's made a fifty, upto 99, untill he reaches 100 runs against his name which will be a century, and hence no more a fifty. If you're looking for the latter, see list of
