    How many "Great innings" have there been?

    Is it a big deal for you to indicate the great innings, e.g. give the Test match number?

    Charlie Macartney is one of those cricketers who is hard to judge because he was an allrounder prior to WWI, but after the war blossomed into a great batsman. It's a shame that he was too old to play more than 14 Tests after the war as his '25 Test peak adjusted average' may have been in the mid-70s if he were able to do so.

    McCabe appears to be a batsman of better 'Quality' as he beats Gower 567 to 521 in that category. This implies that in some aspects at least, McCabe is better than Gower.
