    Strike Rates

    Who has the best strike rates in test match cricket?

    Could someone give me a top 10 or something?

    This was here a while ago, it's not too exact or up to date though.

    Thanks. I wanted to see where McCullum was on that list. He doesn't appear to be there but on his cricinfo profile it says his strike rate is 60 which would place him in the top 10. You probably have to play 20 tests or score a certain amount of runs to get on that list.

    Funnily enough McCullum's ODI strike rate is quite poor, I believe it may have just recently nudged up to 70.

    Because he comes in when we collapse and has to rebuild I guess. He certainly has a dash when required to do so.

    Actually, I can remember a number of occasions where we have been dashing, but McCullum has been playing the role of nudger.

    Jeez, Gilly's good, isn't he? When you see his career stats it makes our efforts in subduing him in The Ashes seem all the greater.

    Looking at some of the older players on Howstat & cricinfo they don't actually have SRs listed, presuambly because of incomplete records. I don't many would be up there at 65+ tho.

    Yeah he compliments the hitters nicely. But when required to do so he can hit the ball a fair way. NZ vs. SA ODI at Wellington him and Oram hit something like 70 off the last 5 overs.

    McCullum is good. he can either go out and have a slog or have a nudge around.

    Yeah, he does that when there is an established batsman at the crease, because hes lightning between the wickets. He just gives the strike back.
