Ask the Spider: Ask the Spider #3

Q: Who is really the best batsmen in the world?

A :To judge this accurately, an objective method must be developed. The official one is pretty good, as it takes into account the opposition, the conditions and the amount of scoring, and with that criteria K.C. Sangakkara is the highest rated, followed by Kallis, Hussey and Ponting. It's hard to deny Sangakkara, with the amount of double centuries he has scored recently.
Q: Which ground has hosted the most one-day internationals/Tests?

A: Lord's is the #1 ground, having hosted 114 Tests in its illustrious history. The top seven grounds, and nine out of the top ten, are predictably all in either England or Australia.

Here are the top ten:

1. Lord's - London (114)
2. Melbourne Cricket Ground - Melbourne (100)
3. Sydney Cricket Ground - Sydney (96)
4. The Oval - London (90)
5. Old Trafford - Manchester (72)
6. Headingley - Leeds (67)
7. Adelaide Oval - Adelaide (66)
8. Queen's Park Oval - Port of Spain (54)
9. Trent Bridge - Nottingham (54)
10. Brisbane Cricket Ground - Brisbane (50)

For ODIs, the top ten are more mixed, and the top ground in the world isn't even in a Test playing country! That venue is Sharjah, in the UAE, with an astounding 198 ODIs played.

1. Sharjah C.A. Stadium - United Arab Emirates (198)
2. Sydney Cricket Ground - Sydney (129)
3. Melbourne Cricket Ground - Melbourne (124)
4. R.Premadasa Stadium - Colombo (81)
5. Harare Sports Club - Harare (77)
6. Adelaide Oval - Adelaide (64)
7. Brisbane Cricket Ground - Brisbane (61)
8. W.A.C.A. Ground - Perth (59)
9. Bangabandhu National Stadium - Dhaka (58)
10. Eden Park - Auckland (57)
Q: What was the average score in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s?

A: The average score of all players in the 1970s was 30.76 runs. In the 1980s, it was 30.45. In the 1990s, it was 29.45, and finally in the last decade it has been 31.63.
Q: Shane Warne was always noted for the most runs without a 100 to his name, which bowler has the most wickets without having ever taken a 5/10 wicket haul.

A: The highest tally of wickets without a five wicket haul was Mike Hendrick of England, having taken 87 Test wickets with a best of 4/28.
