Here's a fairly mad stat:

Whereas Buttler's 22 ball 50 is England's fastest in ODIs to date, Mohammed Amir's equally quick demi-ton was the joint tenth fastest for Pakistan with Shahid Afridi and Abdul Razzaq. The top nine are all by Afridi!

That is pretty crazy. Funny that we think of Afridi as an unfulfilled talent with the bat in all forms of cricket when he's had so much ODI success. Out for 7 off 3 balls about ten times as often as the next ODI batsman though, I suspect. Actually, that really would be an interesting stat.

Cricinfo

Which England player has taken part in the most Test wins?

Two current players top this particular list: Alastair Cook has been part of 56 England Test wins so far, and James Anderson 54. Next come Ian Bell with 48, Andrew Strauss 47, and Stuart Broad and Colin Cowdrey 43.

The overall list is headed by four Australians: Ricky Ponting shared in 108 Test wins, Shane Warne 92, Steve Waugh 86, and Glenn McGrath 84. The leading non-Australian is Jacques Kallis, with 82.

At the other end of the spectrum Alec Stewart took part in 54 England defeats; only Shivnarine Chanderpaul (77), Brian Lara (63) and Sachin Tendulkar (56) tasted Test defeat more often. The only other man to have lost a half-century of Tests is Mohammad Ashraful (50), who played only 61 in total for Bangladesh

Was looking at which England players had won most Tests in India

5 - Underwood (16)
4 - Brearley (6), Amiss (8), Lever (8), Grieg (10), Knott (10)
3 - Anderson (7), Old (8), Panesar (8), Pietersen (9), Pocock (9), Willis (10), Gower (12)

Babar Azam has scored the most runs in a 3 ODI series. De Kock needs 19 runs to pass the record.

Both have scored 3 consecutive 100s. The others are Zaheer Abbas, Anwar, Gibbs, AB de Villers, Ross Taylor, Sangakkara. Sangakkara is the only player to do 4 in a row.

Bairstow goes past Andy Flower's record for runs in a year by a wicket keeper (1045 in 2002). Bairstow just out has 1091. Next in his sights will be most by an England player, currently Vaughan with 1481 in 2002.

It'd be more impressive if he'd done it in the same number of matches.

It'd be more impressive if he'd done it in three matches but he hasn't done that either.

Some people are never happy

His stat should carry an asterisk because of that. He could end up playing another 6 tests in the calendar year.

If you want to be really accurate about it you could look at the relative strengths of the attacks that Bairstow and Flower faced, or what pitches they were on, or what position they batted in, and how long they'd kept before their innings, and also really how valuable were the runs in the match situation, particularly considering how well they kept, as well as taking into consideration the stress of their private lives, whether they were eating well, etc also to get a really true idea of who has had the most impressive achievement.

Or you could just accept that scoring the most runs in a calendar year ever whilst wicketkeeper is an impressive achievement, even if it is somewhat arbitrary.

He still can't catch a flippin cold mind.

Glad you can see the flaw in the statistic.

Bairstow's as good a keeper as we have and a much better batsman than any rival he has for the gloves.

He's not even the best keeper at Yorkshire.

Perhaps so (Prior wasn't the best at Sussex for a long time) but he's as good as anyone else keeping wicket for another county and a better batsman than them too (and Hodd).

He's nowhere near the league of James Foster and I'd rate Brown and Simpson well above him too.

Certainly wouldn't disagree about Foster. Perhaps I didn't make it clear that, if a keeper must be selected for his batting ability also, then Bairstow is probably the best combination.

When you said something significantly different to that then you weren't making it terribly clear, no. Having said that, I probably do agree that Bairstow is our best choice for batsman keeper. The only question I'd have is whether Foakes is sufficiently superior as a keeper and good enough as a batsman to give him a go instead. This wouldn't be nearly so appealing if we appeared remotely able to find decent top order batsmen who aren't Cook, Root or one of our all rounders though.
