I don't see Anderson doing that in one innings nowadays, but maybe by the end of the summer. It's not as if he won't get a bat in this line-up.With his unbeaten 16 Trent Boult moved to 623 test runs scored batting at #11 and into a share of the "most test runs scored at eleven" record with Murali.
Trent has done it in 20 fewer innings though.
Interestingly the player tucked into third place in the list is also slated to come in at #11 in the current England/NZ test. Should the Burnley Lara score 15 or more he'll take the record outright.
That really surprises me. Actually maybe not at number 9. Was he batting there when he made 169 against Pakistan? Perhaps his best years were there and Swann batted at 8. But I remain surprised that he's scored more at number 10 than anyone else.The top scoring #9 and #10 in Tests (both Stuart Broad) is also playing in the same match.
How's Matt Henry go in Tests to be batting behind Southee too? EDIT: 23.4 at 9 and 18.4 overall.The sad but funny thing about tail batting position run leaders is that Boult averages 16 at #11, Wagner averages 20 at #10, but Southee averages just 14 at #9. And we (NZ) seemingly don't have an inkling that anything needs to be changed...
A large part of the reason is that he's had more innings batting at 10 (79) than anyone else (2nd is Bedi with 69).That really surprises me. Actually maybe not at number 9. Was he batting there when he made 169 against Pakistan? Perhaps his best years were there and Swann batted at 8. But I remain surprised that he's scored more at number 10 than anyone else.
This is a ridiculous stat. It cannot possibly be true.Ollie Pope is the first player born in January to score 1000 runs in Tests for England.
