Agree on both counts. For a batsmen to reach 50 as often as he does shows there's not a lot wrong with the technique, but to then get out when set (often to silly shots) shows where the problem lies.

I was impressed by Bairstow's press conference after Day 4 I think of Sydney. Pretty honest about the situation, spoke well and fronted up. I think we'll put that whole headbutt saga down to some pretty unnecessary sledging tactics.

Thought he handled headbut gate quite well also lol. Good sense of humour. Not sure anyone took it too seriously apart from offering a sledging opportunity and bit of wind up bait lol.

Well there were certain Aussie journalists who seemed pretty keen to get all the details out - that Press Conference didn't do anyone any favours.

I would imagine Bancroft would rather not have mentioned it seeing as that is probably his one and only legacy to Test Cricket!!

George Dobell actually suggested that they selected Bancroft for the sole purpose of using the headbutt as sledging material, which is pretty tin foil hat, even for George.

Do you not think those comments might not have been a little tongue in cheek? To think otherwise might be interpreted by some as being pretty tin foil hat.

If you take Root's ability to get to 50 and Kohli's ability to turn it into 100, do you get Bradman?

Not even close, I don't think. Bradman 29x100, 13x50.

If Root he converted like Kohli at 58% he'd have 29 hundreds and 21 50's from 65 games rather than Bradmans 29 and 13 from 52, I guess it depends on your definition of close.

So if Bradman played 65 games........

36 tons and 16 50's v Root/Kohli 29 tons and 21 50's.

Bradman's conversion rate is still seeing off the best modern cricket can offer.

De Kock batting at

6
22 inns 627 runs 29.85

7
23 inns 1014 runs 53.56

Bavuma should be at 6. There is no way Philander is a number 7.

Shame you have to leave out one of their bowlers for that! Trouble with De Kock's form is that it means the tail starts at 6.

Bradman also passed 300 twice, 200 a further 10 times and 150 another 6.

I think 3 South African fast bowlers are good enough with Maharaj. Does Ottis want 4 plus the spinner because he was used to that when he was with England. England not good enough to just play four except when Swann was the spinner.

SA - 4 (6 Bavuma, 7 de Kock)
Aus - 4
NZ - 5 Grandhomme - 35.54/26.10
Eng - 5 Stokes - 35.72/33.93
India - 5 Pandya - 54.00/25.00 (only 4 Tests so far)

His conversion rate from 200-300 must have haunted him through retirement!!

At least The Don was left high and dry by his partner (apparently) running himself out. Unlike Martin Crowe, who perished for 299 off the lethal bowling of..err..Arjuna Ranatunga.

Kohli does it again. Another ODI hundred. 34th.

160

I like India's batting in ODIs, the old fashioned way. The first 20 overs 100, second 20 overs another 100 and last 10 a 100. Opposite of England's 'we bat down to 11' and everyone bashing it from ball 1 and see if we can get 400+.

South Africa have the best openers.
Since Markram made his debut, 10 Tests

Markram 58.75
Elgar 54.66

By team
http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/eng...s;type=batting


@benjones_13
Aiden Markram has 4 Test centuries.

That's the same number as James Vince, Dawid Malan, Mark Stoneman, Sam Robson, Keaton Jennings, Adam Lyth, Haseeb Hameed and Tom Westley combined.

Markram made his Test debut October 2017
