Yes, you got it correct, although i am not sure of Garry Kirsten but one name which i missed out is AFG Griffith. Apologies for that.
Answer: Only batsmen to have batted on all 5 days of a test match.

Ravi Shastri did this for India against England in Calcutta in 1984-85. His 111 in the first innings lasted from the first day into the fourth - there was a lot of rain, and only a few overs were bowled on the second day - and he also had a short knock on the fifth day. In all, six players have achieved the feat. The others are ML Jaisimha, for India against Australia in Calcutta in 1959-60; Geoff Boycott, for England against Australia at Trent Bridge in 1977; Kim Hughes, for Australia against England in the Centenary Test at Lord's in 1980; Allan Lamb, for England against West Indies, also at Lord's, in 1984; and most recently by Andrew Flintoff, for England against India at Mohali in 2005-06. Hughes, uniquely, managed to hit a six on all five days of that 1980 match.
