    Sam Chapman vs Stanley Orton

    Think this important question needs to be answered.

    Two different styles of batsmen. Orton, an opener in the long form of the game who batted at 5 in one day matches compared to Chapman who is the opposite - opened the one day batting but batted at 5 in first class.

    Chapman being the older batsman was given his international chances and did well without being great. Orton's foray into international cricket can only be described as disappointing after a fair amount of chances.

    Chapman was obviously the more aggressive batsman, hence opening the batting in the shorter form. This suited him as well at 5 in first class cricket, where he would counter attack if the team were in trouble.

    Orton was quite a defensive batsman, but not limited. He saw off the new ball extremely well and fought hard for his wicket in the long format. In List A he was Bevan-esque, digging in and fighting for the team, which is reflected by his large number of not outs.

    So, who was the better batsman?

    Sam Chapman
    First Class 164 matches, 272 innings, 30 not outs, 11338 runs @ 46.85, 29x100, 51x50, high score 270.
    List A 133 matches, 128 innings, 27 not outs, 6299 runs @ 62.37, 16x100, 42x50, high score 166.
    Tests 81 matches, 152 innings, 13 not outs, 4859 runs @ 34.96, 7x100, 28x50, high score 173*.
    ODI 91 matches, 89 innings, 9 not outs, 2509 runs @ 31.36, 1x100, 15x50, high score 102.

    Stanley Orton
    First Class 119 matches, 192 innings, 17 not outs, 8577 runs @ 49.01, 24x100, 34x50, high score 273.
    List A 105 matches, 90 innings, 34 not outs, 2952 runs @ 52.71, 1x100, 19x50, high score 110.
    Test 19 matches, 36 innings, 7 not outs, 792 runs @ 27.31, 0x100, 3x50, high score 95.
    ODI 1 match, 1 innings, 0 not outs, 3 runs @ 3, 0x100, 0x50, high score 3.

    It would certainly put my mind at rest. I certainly can't separate them, in terms of class, ability and performance.
