    Who is the most successful home-track, flat-track, minnow-bashing bully of all time?

    Jayawardene?
    Sehwag?
    Hayden?

    Considering the only time Nohit has scored test runs has been on a flat track at home against minnow bowlers, I think he is a good shout.

    Usually the best players anyway. Ponting averaged 57 at home and 46 away, because it's easier for an Australian to bat in Australia. He also averaged 97 against Zimbabwe and 65 against Bangladesh, again, because that's easier. Why doing better in easier circumstances is seen as just expected for some players and a damning indictment for others is a bit of a mystery.

    FTR Don Bradman averaged 178.75 against India and 201.5 against South Africa. Neither of those sides had ever beaten Australia at the time so it's safe to say Bradman was a minnow bashing hack.

    Ian Bell's Test average is 42.5 but in 6 matches against Bangladesh he has 3 tons with an average of 158.

    Sehwag was weird. As soon as he saw a player/team he didn't rate, he would start trying to hit everything for a six. Used to be a trope where bringing in a spinner guaranteed a couple of boundaries in the first over followed by a miscued attempt that would be caught in the outfield.

    Home Track -- Dilip Vengsarkar. Great player in home conditions. 1987 vs WI looked solid against PP and Walsh. Outside so so other than 3 Lord's ton.
    Flat Track -- Don't all players require a flat track to score runs even the great great ones. Let us take Lara, even a genius like him has scored 80 % of his centuries on flat tracks , hardly on challenging ones. From year 2000 all tracks are flat . Viv in 1976 against England, all tracks were super flat. As brown as a Guyanese pitch.
    Minnow's -- relative to the era . Viv has 8 of his centuries against the pop gun indian attack bar Kapil. Tendulkar against Bangladesh.
