Captain of arguably the greatest side ever, Steve Waugh sneaks into the top 15 thanks to an outstanding period of 25 tests during the 1990s when he averaged over 80, a short peak that is 2nd only to Bradman in terms of average. A lot of not outs helped his eventual career average, and in fact he only averaged 58 runs per innings during his 25-test peak. He was also phenomenal overseas and his two of his great innings came in the West Indies in 1995, when Australia took over the title of test champions in the eyes of almost any cricket historian. Above all, after an initial rocky beginning, Steve Waugh came to embody success and winning. His tally of 62 significant innings is the 3rd highest ever. 49 of those innings were played in Australian victories.
Readers should note that a peak rating encompasses not only averages, but also length of time, runs per innings, centuries scored, and total significant innings.

DoG mentioned that the average rating of the top 25 was 900 - we're up to no.15 now and the average score so far has been 829, so the remaining 14 need to average 956 to get us up to the 900 mark. Either we're about to have a huge jump in scores, or one bloke at the top is going to skew the numbers.
On a related note DoG, is there a maximum score achievable - as in are these scores "out of" 1000 or something, or is there no upper limit?
No upper limit. I wanted the truly great batsmen to score over 900, though.
wow....that 25 test peak average is friggin insane....Steve Waugh....WAFG....criminally under rated
