    Top four averaging 50+

    Right now, Gambhir, Sehwag, Dravid and Tendulkar all have a career average of 50+. How many times has that happened in Test cricket?

    Jaques, Hayden, Ponting, Hussey would've qualified back when they were the Aussie top four.

    3rd Test: England v Australia at Leeds, Jul 11-15, 1930 | Cricket Scorecard | Cricinfo.com

    Going into this match all the top 5 English batsmen averaged more than 50 - Hobbs, Sutcliffe, Hammond, duleep and Leyland.

    if they continue to play on flat pitches like the one Sehwag is playing right now.. they will end up with an average of 60 soon..

    Plenty of turn for Herath. SL are just looking toothless because of Muralitharan's form. If you are going to comment on something, I suggest you do some research on the topic.

    Found it eventually, heres the topic I was thinking of:
    Cricket Trivia

    And shortly following that topic, Cricinfo released an article which answers your question, SS:
    Cricinfo - Blogs - It Figures - Teams with four or more batsmen having 50+ averages

    good for sehwag, for the ability to take full advantage of a flat pitch - much better then all the sangas, jayawardenes and tendulkars

    I am not good at making long funny lines. I guess a simple "Screw You" would suffice. Looking forward to you being my bitch btw.(You are a girl right?)
