    I don't think the difference between a batsman averaging 40 and a batsman averaging 50 is ten runs an inning.

    I don't have the statistical analysis back it up but I think the difference would more mean that the 50 run guy would score a ton in every tenth inning - while in that same inning the 40 run guy would get a duck.

    This could make a major difference to a series.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    It depends on consistency. Douglas Jardine never hit a Test match century but averaged a healthy 48 runs because his scores have a low Coefficient of Variation.

    Incidently, the Kiwi Mark Richardson is the most consistent batsman in history according to this study. Vinoo Mankad is the worst;

    (Unfortunately Miller is not on the list. Might work out his CoV if I get the time)
    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    Miller's Coefficient of Variation (Standard Deviation divided by the mean) is 0.9905 which isn't bad apparently.

    This puts him on a par with Donald Bradman (0.991), better than Brian Lara (1.205), but worse than Kevin Pietersen (0.978) and Mark Richardson (0.823) who is a statistical legend.

    What I did find confusing is that Miller's real average is 34.00. However, his average is officially listed as 36.97. I assume that this has something to do with the Not Outs. I divided the Standard Deviation by 36.97.

    You haven,t watched a lot of cricket have you? That,s a very misguided broad statement to make.

    Why? Because he rates a player that debuted after 1930?

    I think it's a call which is pretty close to spot on given the impact Gilchrist has had on the game.

    I sometimes get the impression that the reputations of Don Tallon, Arthur Morris, and Clarrie Grimmett have been inflated by Don Bradman's opinion.

    What is truth and what is 'propaganda' I'm not sure.

    Watched quite a lot actually. Chappell was a great batsman, but wasn't even the best of his era, Warne as great a player he was is over rated with regard to his influence on the game. Gilchrist changed the role of the keeper batsman, his batting provided not only balance to the Australian team, thatg allowed them to play around with team make up, but provided that fear that even when you made it past the top order that he was still there and could tear an attack apart. He kept masterfully to Warne and the fast men and just as importantly played the game the way it should be played. My top five players of All Time would be.

    Gilchrist.

    He was a more than capable gloveman, and with Miller in the top 6, he provides added batting depth.

    Close to the perfect post I reckon. Would debate Marshall and Hobbs, but not to the death.

    Gilly at 7 was something unimagined previously. It wasn't just that he could score big. It was that he could score big and fast and do it so often. Could take an opposition from match winning position to dead and buried in a session. Superb gloveman, adventurous captain when called on, and peerless ambassador for the game to boot. No contest. Second man named on the sheet after the Don.

    Who do you rate higher than Chappell from that era? Viv?

    Yeah I'll never understand how Morris got a spot ahead of Hayden. People somehow dont like the most dashing and attacking Aussie opener.

    My opinions are always biased towards the players who played in our era ( 1980+ ) but thats cause I myself witnessed them playing against the top bowling attacks and bowling against the finest batters across the globe.

    Weight of numbers tilt things in Hayden's favour IMO. 8625 at 50.73 is huge.

    Also, only Bradman has a better innings-to-century ratio, and of all the batsman with more 6000 runs, only Hayden, Bradman, and Azharuddin have scored more centuries than half-centuries.

    However, it is a shame that Hayden's run scoring spree didn't coincide with the careers of Ambrose/Walsh, Wasim/Waqar, and Donald. It would have been nice to see him tested a bit more against quality quicks.

    I also remember the 2005 series well where he had significant problems against the swing bowling of Hoggard. Hoggard has dismissed him 6 times;

    HowSTAT! Player Dismissal Analysis

    Therefore, in an ATG Test series I 'm not sure how he would go against Bedser, Tate, and Mahmood as they were probably superior to Hoggard.

    Having said that, I'd still rather have Hayden in my team than Morris - just.

    Yes he did - a rather celebrated one where the West Indians tried to give him a taste of his own medicine by bowling bodyline, and he defied them unflinchingly.
