Twenty20 has brought about quicker scoring in both of the longer games, surely?
Must be stats to settle this one anyhow?
80 to 85..
but it is harash to expect the same strike rate from batsman like Kallis, Dravid and afew others who played during the 90s considering that the game was much slower back in those days..for upcoming players that strike rate is good enough..
I am interested to see the strike rate of batsman post 20/20 era.. if the 50 over versian survives..

Mid to high 70s is perfectly acceptable, especially when coupled with an average in the mid 30s or higher. The best batsmen will have rates in the mid 80s and a similar average. The very best will be past ninety.

Your applying an average rate and saying it should apply in extreme Individual examples.
Depends on what role you play in your team. Michael Bevan, Arguably the best ODI batsman ever, has a SR rate of 74.
I can make sweeping generalizations too.

It's a bit more in tests. But not much more. Of all the CWisms, this one is by far the most overstated.
He is a bit obnoxious. Makes good points though.
It was relevant because you were off on a trademark rant about how the 90s was a time when Zeus Ambrose and Thor Akram powered lightning bolts towards batsmen of unsurpassed and unsurpassable bravery and ability on pitches that had previously been used for Whack-a-Mole. It's such a shame that these days we're left with Gollum Steyn and Ephialtes Asif to pathetically try to get useless batsmen out on heavily tarmacked motorways. Woe betide at the fate that has befallen our once glorious game.
Etc. etc. etc.
13 batsmen 50+, 3 batsmen 50+....
