    Mark Ramprakash, the bloke who was known for always failing on the big stage at test level, scored his 2 test hundreds against the attacks of Ambrose-Walsh-Bishop and McGrath-Warne-Gillespie-Lee

    Yeah something like Azhar Mahmood scoring all his three test 100s against a rampaging SA of the late 90s including Donald, Pollock, Klusener, Kallis and Devilliers, All three scored in a span of 5 months - 2 of them coming in SA.

    Graeme Swann was on Celebrity Mastermind the other day - I half expected him to be terrible, but he was actually quite knowledgeable (by celebrity standards, at least).

    He averaged over 40 against Australia. In his first 20 Tests, he only reached 30 four times - each time was in the last match of a series against Aus (having not been picked earlier in the series).

    Seriously? I know he was always making runs in county cricket, but how on earth did he get another 32 tests based on that shambolic output? Tbf, he did average 34 in his last 32 tests, which is still poor but quite possibly legitimately good enough to warrant selection considering who we didn't have knocking the door down.

    Edit: Had a quick look, highest score of 29 after 9 tests

    Interesting Ashwin stats:

    Bowling records | Test matches | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    He has got #11s twenty-one times at an average of 2.57

    Not sure if that is something incredible.
    I am proud of this post.
