Mohamed Yousuf of Pakistan scored five consecutive Test centuries in 2006: two vs.England and three vs the WI. He missed the next match vs. SA and when he played in the game after that he didn't scored a century. Many believed missing a Test broke his rhythm.

Don Bradman scored six consecutive Test centuries in 1937/38 vs England.

However, Everton Weeks is the only batsman to score five test centuries in five consecutive innings.
