    He was once dropped for taking a day and a half to score a century. Did himself and his team no favours but the 137 looks wonderful to the all important statsguru that calculates his average.

    I think it would have been very low 40s or even worse

    He had a strange habit of bringing up his ton with a six, about the only time he swung the bat
    You know it makes sense.

    He was one of the most boring top order batsmen to watch. Its okay when batsmen will play defensively in tough situations, or on bad wickets, or against superb bowling, or when they have just come in, or are going through a bad patch. Barrington would bat like that when the team was on top, when the wicket was dead (as were the bowlers), when he had already scored a huge number of runs and was going through a very fruitful patch. He drove you mad when he did that.

    It was very admirable when he did it in adversity though.

    Aussies could have used him in the last test .
