    Best ever 35+ performer

    Which cricketer has the best stats after passing 35th birthday.

    I am backing Sachin and Walsh but could be wrong maybe some statsguru fans can help out.

    CBA to check, but Gooch, Hobbs & Rhodes spring immediately to mind.

    Most matches = Alec Stewart
    Most runs = Graham Gooch
    Most wickets = Clarrie Grimmett

    His average once he turned 35 is only 0.31 less than his career average. To average 56.63 at his age, playing at the time he did, it's quite a remarkable effort. 10 of his 15 Test hundreds came after he turned 35.

    Walsh was the one who immediately sprung to mind for me.

    It's a relatively small sample but I know Bradman's 15 post-War Tests were all played over the age of 35 and in those 15 matches he hit 8 centuries and averaged over 100. I'm imagining that not too many other players can top that.

    Imran Khan's stats are quite special.
    18 Test matches, 1037 runs at 61.00 with a HS of 136 and one other century. Then 51 wickets @ 26.56 with best figures of 7/80 and one other 5fer.

    In many ways the most remarkable part of Bradman's career. He missed 7 years of cricket and was the wrong side of 35 and still averaged over 100. If you take his last seven years of cricket from 34 to 48 as a measure of what he could have achieved during the war and add that to his career he would have scored 45 hundreds and almost 10,000 runs. Amazing.

    Think old Dainty Ironmonger deserves a mention. 45 on debut, played 14 tests and took 74 wickets @ 17.97 each.

    A ferret to (nearly) rival Chris Martin too, as a test average of 2.62 attests.

    Jack Iverson was 35 on debut too - 21 wickets at 15 each

    batting wise he made Dainty and Chris Martin look like Bradman - a mere 0.75 average for Iverson

    Got bowled by Eric Hollies though.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Tendulkar still going strong averaging 57. Ricky Ponting has work to do averaging on 49.66 thus far.

    Barrington averaged 59.68 and Gary Kirsten 61.55.
