    How many batsman are tied at 7 great innings? Inzy, Border, Dravid all have 7 great innings. I am sure I saw a few others too.

    It's disappointing to see Border come in so low. I've really enjoyed the whole list so far though.

    17. Sunil Gavaskar (India) (1971-1987)

    Percentage of team's matches played: 97%
    Career Average: 51.12
    Adjusted career average: 49.91
    Adjusted away average: 50.49
    Adjusted top-opposition average: 47.43
    Top Tier centuries: 5
    Second tier centuries: 4
    Third tier centuries: 21
    Significant innings: 34
    Significant innings per match: 0.27

    Great innings: 4
    5th Test: West Indies v India at Port of Spain, Apr 13-19, 1971 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 13.50
    4th Test: England v India at The Oval, Aug 30-Sep 4, 1979 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 17.30

    5th Test: India v Pakistan at Bangalore, Mar 13-17, 1987 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo 12.98


    Innings worth average: 3.30

    25 Test peak adjusted average: 70.78 (1977-1982)
    50 Test peak adjusted average: 56.05 (1971-1979)

    Quality Points: 581
    Career Points: 120
    Peak Points: 142
    TOTAL POINTS: 843


    The original little master, at just over 5ft, Gavaskar scored a lot of runs that saved his team from defeat. Only 13 of his 34 significant innings were scored in Indian victories. Contrast that with 39/49 of Inzi's S/Is resulting in victory for Pakistan. During the 1980s, after the retirement of Bedi, Chandra, et al, the Indian bowling attack was just not penetrating enough to add value to Gavaskar's runs. However, Gavaskar played for long enough and kept up his standards till the very end: he must be one of only a few batsmen, the other being Seymour Nurse that I can think of, to score a great innings in his last ever test knock.

    Don't think Chappell's 182 against Pakistan would make it, I think Seymour Nurse made 258 in his last innings or match.

    I wonder if Gavaskar is the only player to score a great innings in his first and last test series.

    Perhaps Ponsford with his 266? Was that great?

    So Sangakkara, Barrington, Suttcliffe all going to be ahead of Gavaskar. Not many lists will do that. Interesting!

    I reckon Headley will be top 10, maybe even top 6. His career - in terms of days - was very long (and it's not his fault he only played 22 Tests in that period), his average is exceptionally high and his importance to West Indies wins and draws was immense.

    Now that I've said that, he'll probably be up next...

    However he does have a low percentage of total matches the Windies played in that time, due to only playing 3 matches after the war. Not sure how much that effects the career points.

    a guy scores 34 centuries; 10000+ runs; maintains 50+ average for 125 tests. a guy who played only 22 tests gets ranked above him. there is no justice in this world.

    They'd be ahead of him on a 'best blokes' list as well.

    Shame there isn't any empirical evidence available to measure that, as it would make an interesting stat, well entertaining anyway, and doubtless result in a few amusing tantrums from the more fanatical amongst us
