Someone on Twitter was asking for real examples of regression to the mean, so I put forward Ian Bell's test average as a suggestion.

There are plenty more examples I can think of, especially with relatively recent players. Trott, Strauss and Root. The latter failing to score tons has certainly helped his average fall away. Every player is going to have a lean spell, but it doesn’t help when a specialist batsman doesn’t score three figures apart from increasingly rare occasions.

I really didn't know where to put this. I'm sure a fair few of you will have come across this on the BEEB, but go and rate whom you think played what shot best.
