    Most runs in all forms of the game for a calendar year?

    If my maths is correct Williamson currently has 2930 runs in all forms of the game (tests, odi and t20). Is this the most in a calendar year?

    Doesn't make sense. Is this article wrong?

    Aussie cricketers in awe of Black Caps batsman Kane Williamson | Stuff.co.nz

    It has Williamson at 2860 and Steve Smith at 2758 as the leading run scorers this year across all formats. In your list Williamson has a total of 2136 and Steve Smith isn't even on the list. What am I missing?

    Maybe they are doing a rolling year? I'm pretty sure the cricinfo numbers aren't that off.

    Or maybe they are adding up franchise T20?

    They should not be adding franchise T20. Should only be internationals.

    Just ran the numbers on statsguru and Williamson only has 2206 runs so I don't know how they got 2860. Doesn't make any sense.

    I'm fairly sure it's the difference between "a calendar year" and "the past 12 months".

    Kane has 2200+ in 2015 (01/01/15-15/11/15), but has 2900+ in the past 12 months (15/11/14-15/11/15)

    Except the article says:

    "Williamson could lay claim to being the world's best batsman after his Gabba haul helped him amass 2860 runs in a calendar year across all formats at an average of 62.17."

    It must be a mistake. The article also says, "statistically, Williamson has outscored Don Bradman as a test No 3 at the age of 25 thanks to an unprecedented 12-month run spree."

    Williamson still has around 9 or 10 innings to play this year so he will almost certainly climb to the top 10 before the year is out. Top 5 is likely too and #1 is not out of the question.

    Between 15th November 2014 and 15th November 2015 Williamson has 3000 runs over all 3 formats. Batting records | Combined Test, ODI and T20I records | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    He has 2302 runs between 1st January 2015 and 15th November 2015. Batting records | Combined Test, ODI and T20I records | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    The article was written on November 10th 2015, and Williamson has 2834 runs between 10th November 2014 and 10th November 2015. Batting records | Combined Test, ODI and T20I records | Cricinfo Statsguru | ESPN Cricinfo

    So the article is probably wrong.
