    When is the last time England's top four batsmen all averaged over 50? (Who were they?)

    For their career or at the time of the Test?

    What Goughy means is, did they average 50 over their entire careers, or just at the time when they played together?

    I'm thinking of England v Australia 1930:

    1. Hobbs
    2. Sutcliffe
    3. Hammond
    4. Duleepsinji
    5. Leyland (averaged over 50 at the time, but ended his career with a lower average)

    Just at the time when they played together.

    So do that four still stand?
