Should be an interesting thread....Batsmen or Bowlers with Stats given if possible. Should really be a qualification of a least 5 tests.


To start things rolling.....Has there ever been a batsmen who loved dining out on New Zealands bowling more than Javed Miandad in those to play more than 5 matches ??


Mat Runs HS ave 100 50

International Captain
Wally Hammond.

I think he averages something like 120 against NZ.

Of more recent fame is Ricky Ponting and Herschelle Gibbs, both in the 75-80 category i think.

Gibbs not quite as Good as Miandads record....

Gibbs against NZ is...

6 686 211* 76.22 2 3

Again Ponting is close...but not quite

Ponting against NZ...
11 808 157* 73.45 2 4

BUT....I give you Hammond...His record against NZ even makes Bradmans stats look ordinary...

Hammond against NZ is

9 1015 336* 112.77 4 1 6

Wow...Think we have a winner for batting against NZ (5 test or more). Little doubt the 336 not out would have boosted the average though.....but thats cricket !

Jacques Kallis against Zimbabwe :D
On the same note, Marcus Trescothick averages 110 in 4 matches against Bangladesh..... :D

Michael Vaughan averages over 90 from 6 matches against India, that's pretty handy.

id presume this doesnt include don bradman, because he really would roll over everyone.
178 and 201 against india and SA takes some doing.
 

Beleg

International Regular
Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar against NZ? :p (Well, I think Waqar's figures were spoiled by the latter series)
 

Chubb

International Debutant
I think Andy flower has a superlative average against SA. Mainly helped by his 168 and 199* in one test, also his record against India and Pakistan must be very strong too.
