This has possibly been brought up before but just having a discussion about Collingwood with my dad, who's not a fan and he was saying he scores all his runs when we lose...so i looked it up and its actually quite interesting.
Collingwood averages 38.00 with only 1 century when England win and 41.75 with 3 centuries when we lose. Now is this a bad thing or a good thing?
By comparison there are only 2 batsmen who have debuted for England since 1989 that have averaged more in losses and they are Mark Ramprakash(22.15/25.95) and Nick Knight(17 tests, 17.4/19.00)
The others (haven't looked at guys who played a couple of tests)
Colly obviously isn't good company with Mark and Nick, and England's best batsman (at least before KP) has a massive difference between the two.
Is there any other batsmen around the world with similar anomolies to Collingwood? Any older English players ?( I stopped with Atherton)
