I'm really bored and do not want to do any study, so I'm going to waste time and life and list every player who averages over 40 with the bat or under 27 with the ball (discounting test performances where I can be bothered working it out). I'm wondering if it will throw up anything interesting. Definitely keen to see how our bowlers stack up.
Mathew Sinclair: 52.67 (89 matches)
Johannes Myburgh: 51.71 (25 matches)
Jeet Raval: 51.31 (10 matches)
Peter Fulton: 47.72 (58 matches)
Kane Williamson: 46.06 (20 matches)
Kruger van Wyk: 44.00 (35 matches)
Jesse Ryder: 43.86 (38 matches)
Michael Papps: 43.37 (86 matches)
Aaron Redmond: 42.89 (32 matches)*
Neil Broom: 41.78 (55 matches)
Mathew Bell: 41.27 (113 matches)
Craig Cumming: 40.99 (100 matches)
Ross Taylor: 40.83 (35 matches)
Tim Weston: 40.05 (36 matches)
*Since Redmond converted to being a batsman.
Also, since Hopkins moved to the Motorway (Auckland), he averages an impressive 59.56 from 20 matches. Jesus.
Bowlers to follow.
Time to look at the under-27 bowlers. These are discounting A team results as well.
Andre Adams: 20.58
James Franklin: 23.39
Mark Gillespie: 23.82
Michael Mason: 23.91
Brent Arnel: 24.04
Daryl Tuffey: 24.27
Tim Southee: 25.00
Warren McSkimming: 25.02
Trent Boult: 25.16
Chris Martin didn't meet the criteria because he averages 29.46. Neither could Kyle Mills, who averages 28.56
EDIT: Daniel Vettori averages 25 for ND

Van Wyk's figures look pretty good there. Hopkins will need to actually produce results or I could see van Wyk getting a shot before long. The bowlers figures are particularly depressing, as it leads to the conclusion that most of the top performing bowlers are either past it, unavailable or already playing for New Zealand (with poor results).
Unfortunately the selectors see this as a reason to pick the likes of Guptill and Flynn despite them being arguably worse. Actually, Sinclair is easily a better test batsman than both.
Just goes to show you gotta pick on runs, technique and check whether they have a back foot. Unless it's Pinga, bcause then you pick him anyway.
Franklin averages about 40 for Welly and if you do the Redmond since he became a batsman treatment he'd qualify.
Instead of career averages give us the last 3 or so years, that'd get rid of the guys who raped it years ago like Franklin with the ball.

Andre Adams really has had some pretty decent figures, too bad hes a ****.
I just remembered those are standardised to base 33 as well. It was just to account for the slightly greener pitches a few seasons back. Didn't effect it as much as I thought it would anyway - the second highest global batting average was actually in 2006/07, funnily enough.
2006/07 - 37.36 per wicket
2007/08 - 32.44 per wicket
2008/09 - 36.46 per wicket
2009/10 - 37.75 per wicket
I'm actually hoping for greener wickets this season, a season where Ingram averages 30-40 is much needed.
I so dislike Franklin tbh. He's a nothing cricketer.
