Most frequent 150+ scores by Test centurions

Most frequent 150+ scores by Test centurions

Post by asiddi.. » Thu, 25 Dec 1997 04:00:00


 Another interesting comment about Bobby Simpson - 60% of his Test
centuries were actually greater than 150. Here is the list of batsmen who
have had individual innings of 150 or greater at least 50% of the times
they crossed the century mark (qualification - 10 Test centuries).

  %
72.73   8/11   DL Amiss (Eng)
66.67   8/12   Zaheer Abbas (Pak)
62.01  18/29   DG Bradman (Aus)
60.00   6/10   RB Simpson (Aus)
54.55   6/11   TW Graveney (Eng)
52.63  10/19   L Hutton (Eng)
50.00   6/12   AR Morris (Aus)
50.00   7/14   SR Waugh (Aus)
50.00   5/10   BC Lara (WI)

Bottom of the list:
 0.00   0/14   AJ Lamb (Eng)
 0.00   0/11   ME Waugh (Aus)
 0.00   0/11   M Amarnath (Ind)
 7.14   1/14   IT Botham (Eng)
 7.69   1/13   PBH May (Eng)
11.11   2/18   DL Haynes (WI)
13.64   3/22   G Boycott (Eng)
14.29   3/21   DC Boon (Aus)

A surprise not to find Bradman at the top of this list.

And a surprise to find Haynes and Boycott so low down.

With the phenomenal rate at which he scored centuries this is not
surprising. All the other batsmen have less than 20 centuries in
this group. And if we take out Hutton (another exceptional batsman) none of
the rest has even scored 15 centuries.What would be interesting would be
to see batsmen who have scored more than twenty centuries.

Yes these were surprises. Also the fact that Lamb, M Waugh, and Amarnath
never reached 150. Actually the only man I would call "predictable" in
this list is Botham. I imagine that when the current crop gets done
with their careers we will see a lot more in this range. People to watch:
Chanderpaul, Dravid (That is if they ever get 10 centuries first). And I
am sure many more. Infact I think most batsmen of 90's will fit in this
ctegory. Anyone else?

Well yeah, but third isn't bd when you look at how many centuries he made. A %
record is harder when you have to maintain it over a long time and a lot of
results.

Obviously we all have different impressions of people. The surprises to
me in this were Amarnath and May. Lamb and MWaugh I already knew about
as being "surprises" in this statistical bywater.

Boycott, Boon, and Haynes were all reliable grafters rather than big
shot makers. Very few big innings do not involve some heavy hitting, as
well as a certain amount of luck. And they rarely played innings
memorable for their hitting. Even Haynes wasn't much more than a
25-run/hour player, despite being a more attractively attacking player
than Boon or Sir Geoffrey of Bournemouth.

Cheers,

Mike

I think you're being harsh in suggesting that 25 runs per batsman per
hour is moderate. I mean it's equivalent to 300 runs in the day (at a
rate of 3.33), which I think everyone would agree is a rather swift
rate by Test standards. RSA just finished a days play with less than
200, despite receiving more than the mandatory 90 overs!

What I was actually driving at there was that I suspect that Haynes
falls into the category of quick scorers in most people's minds, because
he ususally looked as though he ought to score quite fast, but that he
was no more than average *for centurions*. I'm also suggesting that
Haynes hardly ever got above that speed at any time, whereas most
centurions, especially those who are going to get to 150+, will have an
hour or two during their innings scoring at 30+/hour. I hope that
clarification will at least partially absolve me from the charge of
harshness.

Cheers,

Mike
