    I'll pick Imran Khan as my number 7. 2 hundreds in 1987, the year he turned 35.

    If I'm understanding it right, Sobers scored 6 hundreds in the year 1958 which is the year he turned 22. So you picked Sobers for age 22.

    OP doesn't mention age at the start of the match, instead, it's :
    the age they turned the year they got their most test centuries/wickets

    Sid Barnes aged 40

    While I can see what OS says matches what the OP says, the statsguru filters works the way Andrewb has done it and it might be a bit much to expect us to look at every players career and birth year individually.

    Guess it's up to mr_mister.

    How do you get the age filter? I can't seem to get it to work the way you described.

    Yes it is up to Mr mister. I admit it is still a fair bit of analysis but I can't think of any other way to collect data across multiple players. Ie I did one statsguru analysis for each age rather than one for each player.

    Under the advanced filter there is an option for 'age at start of match'. You can set the from and to to say 40 and it will show how many wickets every 40 year old took. Barnes took 49.

    I then compiled into a spreadsheet. Not sure if this is the best method, just up to individual preferences and skills.

    Let's stick with what we've started with, ie what OS said


    There's only 7 drafters so nobody will have to dig too deep into lesser known players. Just a glance at a players cricinfo batting or bowling summary than their DOB doesn't seem too hard. We'll basically all secure ATG heavy teams

    You tell Keith Miller to bat at 8 and he'll tell you to shove it and go straight to the bar.

    Nah.. that is just the batting order you give out to the opposition captain to mess with his plans. He will walk in at 5 when we are 300/3. Don't worry about it.
