    cbf checking the thread, but surely the failure of any side batting first to put on more than 280 odd in 4 Tests must be fairly unprecedented in recent Test history?

    Australia currently average 29.57 runs per wicket in the series. That would be the lowest mark for Australia in a Test series since 1999.

    Happened in 5 successive Tests involving Sri Lanka

    Dec 7-9, 06, Christchurch: SL 154 & 170 lost to NZ 206 & 119/5 by 5 wkts
    Dec 15-18, 06, Wellington: SL 268 & 365 bt NZ 130 & 286 by 217 runs
    and the three innings defeats by Bangladesh in Sri Lanka (89, 62 and 131).

    But if you want a decent team and in the same series, then it might be a long time. (Mainly because 4+-match series have been rare this decade :P )

    Meant Test series in Australia tbh. I can't imagine in recent times Australia will have failed to put on 300+ in the first innings of a Test match throughout a series.

    Conversely, England's overall batting average of 48.26 is currently the best they have ever got in a series down under, topping the 43.18 they managed in 1928/9.

    The only touring team to have bettered this in a series in Australia is India, who averaged 62.46 in 1985/6 and 49.22 in 2003/4.

    During Australia's dominant home period of 1993-2008, touring teams only scored an overall batting average of 26.92, with India the only team to get above 30 runs per wicket. Australia's own home batting average during this period was 44.50.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Im not going to bother to check the numbers, I trust you. A +18 run differential per wicket at home over 15 years is insane. In fact Im trying hard to measure the significance of such a difference as it is hard to compute (my drunkeness may be only partially responsible)

    Cook has now had the 3rd most prolific tour of any Englishman in Australia. Just beat Jack Hobbs.

    Only Hammond's 905 and Sutcliffe's 734 stand in his way now.

    6th best Ashes for a Pom ever at home or away too.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Sutcliffe's 734 is also the best Ashes total by an England opener.

    Should Cook reach 167 in the match, he will have 1000 runs on the tour.

    Cook now has the 13th most runs of any player in any series ever. Really who knew he had it in him?

    2nd most by a Pom
    2nd most by a Pom against Aussie
    3rd most of any player against Aussie

    In 35 trips to the wicket, the Australian top 4 have scored 880 runs.

    In 7 trips to the wicket, Alastair Cook has scored 766 runs.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    According to Nasser that's the first time that the 6th, 7th and 8th wickets have all added 100 runs in Test history.

    England have passed 500 in an innings of every test other than the test that they have lost.

    *sigh*
