    If I understand the stat correctly then it is inning/100 right? The number of innings it requires a player to make a 100? Right? Or is this stat interpreted differently?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Or more likely he'll have played against BanZim more often (which is incidentally the case - remove BanZim and he's 6.21 against Hayden's 6.29)

    out of curiosity, why would one remove zimbabwe and bangladesh?

    i would wager that the zimbabwe attack of the 90s and early 00s were comparable to the windian and kiwi attacks of today.
    i know i am god. since when i pray i find i am talking to myself.

    (massive apologies to barnes)

    i remember how spectacular hayden was. at one point, around the time he had played around 90 innings, he had scored 20 centuries (the numbers might be marginally off, but bear with me!). quite incredible!

    also, i remember that gavaskar had scored 20 100s after 50 tests. another incredible statistic.

    I think even now he's only playing at 75-80% of his best.

    Reckon the data could do with some serious weighting. The raw innings/100 ratio is really prone to bias.

    Agree, but any filtering of the same imho just increases the bias one way or the other.

    Yeah, as I've said many times, there's no defensible statistical basis for excluding weaker opponents. It's actually quite a complex issue truly understanding a dataset like a sports one. Just about all sports data, if you're to use the raw measures, should only be used as vague guides only. Otherwise, you need to sample, transform and/or weight appropriately.

    Top_Cat speaks the truth. And speaks it better than me by being all clever and whatnot.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.
