    That side's combined batting average is about 286, including Boult's current 26. Lower that to a more realistic 12, and it's 272... After the first innings of the current test, the combined Bangladesh side currently averages about 284 (including one allrounder averaging 4 after one innings).

    Meaningless I know, but where would cricket discussion be without meaningless stats? Just sayin'.

    The stats aren't meaningless. They have a clear meaning... NZ's batting is ****.
    It just didn't need to be proven with stats since everyone already knows it.

    The question is why? Are they just **** or are they under performing? I think it's a mix of both. McCullum, Taylor and Williamson should be scoring more runs than they do, IMO.

    Didn't Shaun Pollock bowl some offies once right at the end of his career because he wasn't getting anything out of the wicket with seamers?

    Haha yep indeed. A couple of years later Johan Botha did the opposite and pulled a Colin Miller; felt ironic in some ways.

    Either way Wellington would still collapse to it.

    Remember Waqar did the same thing on the fifth day of that test at Jade Stadium where Sinclair hit his 2nd 200. If memory serves he was absolutely robbed of an lbw decision by Daryl Harper.

    Per cricinfo :
    Mahela Jayawardene has made over one fifth of his 10,540 runs in Galle, and averages 75.60 there


    Dilshan not fit to play. But still no place for Chandimal.

    **** Sri Lanka are dire the Chandimal thing. I'm usually pretty conservative by most standards on the whole 'fast tracking young cricketers' thing but **** me dead, it's not like he's got anything left to achieve domestically.

    TBF either do the other two opening options Karunaratne averages 45 in FC and so does Paranavitana excluding Test matches.

    Though Paranavitana will never be more then decent Test batsmen and they should just play Chandimal and/or Karunaratne at the top.

    Loving the fact we have players averaging mid 40s coming into the Test team, not any guys averaging over 30. If only some of them can start averaging 40 odd in the Test matches.
