    The blokes we've talked about so far all improved their averages greatly after early-career mediocrity, but what about those who suffered huge declines compared to their peak average? There are probably quite a few but off the top of my head I'm thinking Jimmy Adams might rank pretty highly on that list.

    Kevin Walters was 67.46 after 20 and 48.26 by the end, so a big drop, but hardly massive. This is tricky 'cause the guys like Rowe suffer such a decline they get kicked out of the team before it really bites their average!

    It's a slightly different note, but just a little discussion about Chanderpaul and Ponting and their conversion rates. Chanders in his first 51 tests made 21 50's and 2 tons. So it was a lousy conversion rate. Since then he's gone 38 50's and 25 100's, which are very good numbers. On the other hand, Ponting was 46's 50s and 38 100s over his first 132 matches, brilliant numbers, but in his last 35 odd matches he went 16's 50 and 3 100's, with two of those doubles. Not quite a Chander-esque ratio, but I think it's interesting

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Ha ha, somehow I don't think Dougie would have been quite as big a cult hero had everyone called him Kevin.

    I think Strauss has similar record, 18 100s 14 50s till Lord's test in 09 and then 3 100s 13 50s till retirement.
