    Think Gooch was 1975-95 as well?

    Lot of openers coming through. Probably Sehwag next.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Although Simpson did play for 21 years, he only played in 62 of the 148 matches that Australia played in that time.

    IIRC he played for around 11 years, and then made a comeback nearly a decade later due to WSC.

    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

    Great question! I reckon it is. I just checked Hobbs, and he didn't have a great innings at that age, so I can't think of anyone else. Charlie Macartney celebrated his 40th birthday in the 1926 test at Lord's where he hit 133*. That's the closest I can find.

    Interesting stuff and nicely presented.
    Don't want to bang the drum I always bang but will Andy Flower feature somewhere?

    Wait and see. Anticipation and suspense is part of the presentation.

    I think Flower will feature in this list for sure. Saeed Anwar being rated 49th best player is good news for Flower. Flower played more matches and averaged 5 or 6 runs higher in pretty much the same era. Flower didn't play as many games against third tier opponents as you'd think, and he did very well against top tier (presumably) South Africa. If I were to guess, he will end up at around 35-38. I wonder where he will rank in contrast to Gilchrist..

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Sorry I didn't reply to this sooner. It's relatively simple to update a player's rating after every series. They gain or lose points, since quality points such as overall average and significant innings per match are worth a lot more than career points (which you can only add to). At this time, all three players you mentioned would have lost rating points. Hell, Bell might even be nearing the top 100 after the first two tests. We'll have to check where they all stand at the end of the current Ashes series.

    Pretty good from Sehwag. Better than I expected. Most of them will be home matches though.
