    If someone gets like 60+ in tests and then continues to dominate domestically well into his 40s is the only way it could happen. Unless we see Ramprakash 2.0.

    Bradman played 338 innings for his 117 hundreds. The next lowest innings played for 100+ FC hundreds is in the 700s.

    Ramps and Hick are two massive outliers in that their test output was so far below their FC return too.

    Bevan the only other player I can think of who averages more than 50 in FC cricket and less than 32 in tests from a semi-reasonable sample size and he didn't get that many bites at the cherry anyway.

    Smith has played 38 Shield games, and about half of them are where he was young and still bowled quite a lot. Hence his Shield average is only 51.78 rather than 60ish.

    Warner an even bigger example, has only ever played 19 Shield games in his entire career

    Ashok Mankad is another (50/25).

    Matthew Elliott at 47 and 33 was also close to that criteria

    His average was well above 50 for most of his career too before dropping dramatically in the last 3-4 years of his career.

    Oddly there's quite a few players of that generation with similar kind of figures. From memory Crawley has similar stats to Elliott.

    And if you look at India there's a lot of players who average ~50+ at FC level but only average in the 30's (or less) at Test level.

    It's funny that after 5 years in test wilderness he was given a SL tour of all things s a comeback chance and predictably failed. Bet he wished it came a year later in England or during a home summer

    Edit - oh wait that was in Darwin. Random as

    Still fancy only getting one test to prove your worth after years of fighting in shield cricket for another chance

    Was a home Test. The thing is he was in England for most of the time up until the last minute, and his selection was purely only down to Ponting having to withdraw because his aunty died. On top of that he had to bat 3 when he was 100% an opener before that point, and the pitch was an absolute dog from memory. Was set up to fail, pretty much.

    If you include List A and T20 hundreds as well, another 12 players have reached 100: Tendulkar, Greenidge, Ponting, Mark Waugh, Lamb, Hayden, Gatting, Sangakkara, Kallicharran, Lehmann, Langer and Law. Trescothick is on 96.

    Give it a couple of hundred years, when we've learnt how to get complete control over microclimates, and folk have sufficient leisure time to mean First-Class cricket has become the format of choice for the masses and batsmen will start getting there again

    Wonder who gets to 100 combined format centuries. Big 4 all a good chance you'd think?

    Kohli has 82 (32 FC, 45 List A, 5 T20).

    Yeah I calculated that after my post.

    Smith has 50, Williamson 48 and Root 43.

    Pujara's on 60 FWIW. And 49 FC ones - so maybe an outside chance?

    I can plausibly see Pujara being the sort of cricketer who is still chugging along in the Raiji Trophy well into his 40s
