    Consistent batsman all time?

    Other then Bradman who is the most consistent batsmen of all time? By consistent i mean scoring more then 30 in ODI's on a regular basis and more then 40 in tests on a regular basis?

    Like Lara for example was not consistent despite being one of the best batsmen.

    miandad and sutcliffe were very consistent over long test careers. javed never averaged below 50 and herbert always averaged above 60 from their first innings till last.

    Both good shouts, though Javed had quite a bad slump toward the end of his career.

    Ken Barrington is another who seems to have been a supremely consistent runmaker, as was AB.

    For his era, Clem Hill could also claim to have been a very consistent accumulator of runs once he settle down after a poor start to his career.

    There was an article by Ric Finlay on Cricinfo re: most consistent batsmen.

    The article is called:
    A Consistency index for batsmen, dated January 30 2009.
    Min 5000runs, Jack Hobbs edged out Don Bradman by a fraction.
    For the top 8 run scorers,
    Ponting leads Gavaskar and Border.
    Make of that what you want.

    This is why you made my top ten list. This guy has a test average better than Bradmans.

    Chris Martin must come pretty close to most consistent batsman of all time - not even Bradman could manage nine consecutive innings producing the same score each time...

    I thought you had to score to make a score

    Devon Smith, he will make 21 or so and then get out. Every innings.
