    Just an update:

    Sobers: 69 Tests, 118 Inn, 16no, 6378 runs @ 62.53
    Smith: 65 Tests, 118 Inn, 16no, 6343 runs @ 62.18

    Sobers scored 52 in his 119th innings (after scoring 110 in 1st innings of test), so Smith needs only 88 to break Sobers record as the all-time best average ever after 119 innings

    Wasn't Ponting averaging around 60 after more than 100 Tests? That was a pretty incredible effort.

    Think it crept past 60 after the first innings of the Adelaide test 06 but fell bellow 60 after the second innings when he was dismissed for 40 odd

    Yeah, he averaged 59.99 at the end of that test (his 107th)

    Yeah, that was some ridiculous level of batting from Ponting between 2005-07. Smashed good SA attacks home and away, made that 4th innings ton in Bangladesh and was basically scoring tons every other innings.

    That's why I think it's still premature to anoint Smith the best Aussie batsman behind Bradman. Needs to keep it up another couple of years for that.

    And he played 61 after that. Smith has played 65 in all. Ponting's final average undersells him.
    trundler isn't annoying at all. He's quality. -TJB

    He clearly shouldn't have played on so long, but looking at the quality of most of his successors, it's hard to blame him for feeling compelled to stick around past his use-by date.

    Root has now scored 6 unconverted ashes 50s since his last ashes ton. Long may he continue to choke

    And lastly we've got Bradman with 19


    There's every chance Smith can move into equal third with Waugh this series. Very good chance he ends up with the second most ever considering he's only just turned 30

    He might even get close to Braddles.

    Passing Bradman in this respect would be great legacy to leave

    He's not getting close to Bradman. Assuming he has three ashes series left he'd have to hit 3 tons in each. And in one or two of them his output will almost certainly be lower due to his age.

    It would almost be strange if he didn't at this stage
