    the new real steve smith question

    ICC Player Rankings

    steve smith is currently equal with Len Hutton on 945 points in the ICC best ever batting ratings. will he move into second overall? it's unclear what he has to do exactly but let's just assume it's a bunch of runs in the boxing day match

    stupid software wouldn't let me do my full joke for option #3

    He has to score a hundred against the best bowlers of the eighties.

    This video reminds me of that experience.

    I find it weird Bradman's only 16 points clear of #2, given the way most of his stats are I was expecting more of a ~200 point difference.

    The main difference is Bradman was ranked number 1 for about 17 years and Hutton was ranked number 1 for about 4 years.

    he also missed 2 years of cricket from 34 to 36 and he had his best series after his 4th test match instead of when he was already on 900 odd points

    It also maxes out at 100 iirc, so there's diminishing returns when you get that high

    If you meant 1000, then yes you're right.

    That explains it, so a difference between continuously averaging 70 and 100 is about 16 points at that level. Guess Smith will max out at 950ish at the most?

    It's odd that we don't even know what the formula is. They should make it public imo.
