We commonly see players lauded for a high run rate. A run rate of 100
might suggest that they score a run from every ball they face but it
really indicates that they score enough 2s, 3s and boundaries to counter
their dot balls. In the Eng innings on Saturday I remember Trescothick
being on 18 from about 24 balls - but he'd only had 6 scoring shots,
four fours and two singles. He was scoring quite well by the totals but
he didn't score from 18 out of 24 balls.
So, that got me wondering about batsmen actually hitting one or more
runs from each ball they faced for some period. Does anyone know any
records along those lines - most consecutive scoring shots?
