You know Richard I have thought of that. The fact that English, inspite of having introduced the limited overs game to the world officially, have not shown, in their batting over the century, the flair one associates with the shorter version but I suspect the malaise runs deeper. Its not as if the English batsmen are doing better at playing longer innings in the longer version of the game.

Surely these cant be explained by number of games played.
Country 250+ scores
