    Marlon Samuel's 123 the other day has gained him a place in the top 100, at no.41 in fact. His is the 3rd best innings to be scored against New Zealand, behind Greg Chappell's 176 and Inzamam's mammoth 329.

    Cool. Pretty useful list it is.

    How about what I asked for earlier - look at average scores for these batsmen, in innings in which they scored 100 or more. It should be possible for you with the data you already have. It will tell us who inflicts most pain when he gets going. I'd expect Lara, Viv, Gilchrist, Sehwag etc to come out with very good numbers.

    48 H Sutcliffe 8.29
    49 JH Kallis 8.11

    Someone finally beats the Don in a list! And Kallis at the bottom indicates he scores the majority of his centuries in high team scores or in draws.

    I haven't done Stan McCabe yet. I expect him to feature fairly highly on the list.

    Wow. Bradman is finally no 2 on a list. And beaten by none other than the man for whom I have a certain place in my ATXI.

    It's also interesting that the bottom 3 are batsmen who are often "underrated" and rated behind their contemporaries with similar or inferior averages. There is a statistical argument to be made after all for that!

    Samuels really has turned into a proper test match player now. FMD he's making the most of a good run of form and really fulfilling the potential which was spoken of years ago. Good on him.
