Draft idea - may need work...


International Regular
Garfield Sobers 1958 - 1968 (48 Tests)
Can you give specific dates/matches, and make it a multiple of 5 Tests, please?

(Unless people think the runs should be minimum length: i.e. the "10-Test peak" has to be an "at least 10-Test peak"... I don't object to that in principle, but it does affect it if someone else wants to pick a second run from an already picked players).
Though Line and Length still needs to be more specific, since Sobers played 53 Tests from 1 Jan 1958 to 31 Dec 1968.

Sorry about that. I'll take the 50 Tests between 17/1/1958 v Pakistan and 14/3/1968 v England.

Can someone pick a run from within my run? I hope not.

International Captain
Adam Gilchrist, 1st 30 or 35 tests from Nov 1999-2002

Averaged about 60 with the bat.

Will check exact stats later.
