I couldnt work out what you meant.. then I looked at his test recored

10 innings in a row when scoring 100+, and not getting out for under
150

surely it's a record

Perhaps he even has a record (behind maybe Bradman) for highest 100+ score
average? All meaningless stats of course other than to tell us that he
either scores a little or a lot.

Absolute supremacy for Viru as he is at 218* at tea off 200 balls with
34 boundaries and 3 sixes. Absolute carnage exemplified by the last
over before tea by Ntini which went for 16 runs including a six and 2
fours. SA looking absolutely shattered as Sehwag runs wild and toys
with them. He has now scored the highest by an Indian vs SA.

On the other hand we have the Wall Dravid with only 10 runs off 56
balls. If he was a little faster, SA would be even more worried.

If India can score at the current rate of about 4.41 for the remaining
41 overs, SA would be feeling rather worried at the end of play since
the pitch will help the spinners increasingly.

An absolutel wonderful feeling watching Sehwag running into top form.

Decided to hit up statsguru over tea and answering my own question,

Sehwag's 100+ score avg is 191 whereas Bradman's is 234.

Bradman also scored 6 consecutive 150+ scores and 2 sequences of 4 200+
scores.

Sehwag has 2 consecutive 200+ scores.

All of these only relate to 100+ scores.

Cheers!

Can't see my original reply, but a few things I found:

Bradman averages 234 with 100+ scores and Sehwag 191.

Bradman's longest sequence of 100+ scores is 6

Sehwag currently has 69% of India's score which beats Bannerman's record. Of
course, Sehwag can improve on this if Dravid and Viru stick around until
decl. :)

2 sequences of 4 200+

I know it's impossible to compare eras... but damn, if there's ONE
thing I'd like to be able to compare it is the quality of bradman -vs-
today's players.

on a side note... HOLY SHIT... dravid just hit a 4

The point of the Bannerman record is that it was compiled in a completed
(i.e. all out) innings.  I imagine a number of batsmen have scored more than
67% of an innings if the all-out restriction is removed.

Well Bradman vs. Sehwag is no comparison :)

Perhaps Bradman vs. Lara/Tendulkar would be appropriate.

Without checking, I'd guess that the record in an incomplete innings
is 100%, as there must have been the odd game where an opening batsman
merely had to score to register a ten-wicket victory.

Cheers,

Mike

I was just thinking that when India got to 400 because I calculated that
Viru would roughly have 400 when India draws level with SA (if he sticks
around and doesn't throw away his wicket as is his wont...woof woof..). I
have now started rooting for Dravid to get out (foow).

But arbitrary milestones are awesome! Maybe Aslam could look at:

a) Innings of 200+
b) (n!=4)th Innings
c) Declared Innings

oh, i agree, i was just 'shooting the shit'

there's only a few I think who might compare to bradman (i'd like to
'compare' these, not saying they are as good as or better);

Barry Richards
Tendulkar
Lara
Ponting
Viv Richards

Barry, "they say", was one of the cleanest hitters of the ball ever.
For obvious, and justifiable, reasons he only played 4 tests.

Lara and Tendulkar speak for themselves.

Ponting... basically I hate the little ***er, but his record is
amazing. I wonder how good he really is.

Viv as he was my '*** superstar' as I was growing up

The first wicket fell at 213 and the second wicket partnership is also
worth 200+ runs. How often has that happened?

Jayen

Yeah...this would be interesting I'd agree..

Quote:

Ponting? Yes he has a tremendous record, but he has known chinks in his
armour and is not the nicest batsman to watch even in full flow (I'd prefer
to watch Martyn/Laxman any day) which precludes him from being great in my
book. No comparison to Bradman IMHO

Quote:
> Viv Richards

Different styles of play, but I'd like to see the comparison here too :)

I'd also add Graeme Pollock since his average is so good and I know little
about his batting abilities. And perhaps Inzy too.

And what about Hussey? I'm ambivalent about him. He doesn't quite seem to
have the same influence on the game as Lara/Sachin, but seems awfully
consistent.

Cheers!
