The opportunities are mostly for people at the head of the order but
they also risk getting a small not out, either because they're winning
by several wickets or playing out time in a draw.
Yep. Had Strauss or Cook got out in the second innings at Lord's, Bopara
would presumably have come in at number 3 and so have suffered that
Hayden suffered that fate in 2001-02. He made 131 in the second
against South Africa at Adelaide, then followed that with 138 and 3*,
105 and 21*, and 122 in his next three tests. The two not-out innings
came from 10W wins.
Harvey suffered sort of the reverse fate once. Batting late in the
order he was only able to get to 56* in the first innings of the
Johannesburg Test in 1950. He'd made 151* in the innings before and
he made 100 and 116 in the two innings after.
Incidentally, are Bopara's three ducks + three hundreds unique?
