    Why australian batsmen score more century at Home ??

    i just checked and find it out quiet interesting...

    Hussey 7 out of 8
    Ponting 19 out of 34
    Hayden 21 out of 30
    Langer 15 out of 23
    clarke 4 out of 6
    symonds 2 out of 2
    Jaques 2 out of 2 (only played one game away)

    Only Gilchrist is good only 7 out of 17.......
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    I think you will find most batsmen have simliar records to Ponting, Langer and Gilchirst home and away. Hussey, Symonds, Clarke and Jaques haven't really played enough cricket away from home. Hayden well we been through that. Just look at any Hayden v some average player thread.

    What % of Tests did they play at home?

    Hussey would have played many more at home, off the top of my head
    You know it makes sense.

    I think most of them play almost equal no. of games away from home too... Anyways, I tend to think it is the same for all teams and I guess Aussies are no exceptions.

    I think the pecentage of games they are playing at home has a huge role in that and i think many other players from around the world too would have similar records, but that doesn't mean that the Australian batsmen are underperforming away from home or anything, anyways hasn't Clarke only tonned outside Australia once that too in his debut innings againat India at Banglore, rest of his 5 tons have come at home.

    I think a lot has to do with the fact that Australia play so much more cricket at home! Otherwise, I can see no other reason...because its not like Aussies dont perform away from home! They thrash everyone regardless of whether its at home or away!

    Hussey hasn't played many tests away yet.
    Ponting does have 15 away tons, not like a dearth
    Clarke has played more away than Hussey, but not that much yet.
    Symonds - see Clarke.
    Jaques - as you say, only one away test.

    Langer and Hayden's records are the most compelling case for what you've put forward.
    Given the stats of those two, it's little wonder home has been a fortress for Australia in the last decade or so.

    Think the fact that Andrew Symonds has 2 Test centuries is more worthy of than the home\away records of any Australian batsmen TBH.

    This post has put me in a very good mood.

    Meh, you should know I'm not that far behind you in the Symonds-dislike, doubly so since he had about 5 let-offs in those 2 centuries.

    Maybe so, but I dislike Shahid Afridi more than you dislike Symonds. Beat that.

    I'd seriously give my little finger to have Symonds's Test career wiped from the records.

    I think you under-estimate my dislike of the man - or rather, the player.
