Best Batsmen of all time from a slightly different perspective

Post by Chambo Off To Work We Go on Mon Nov 26, 2012 10:34 pm

Thought I would have a look at the top test batsmen by run scoring as a ratio of Innings to Score 50+.
IE the ranking of batsmen who have the highest proportion of run scoring innings.

To qualify, each batsman had to have reached 5000 runs in their career to date.

Here are the top 25 all with a ratio of less than 3 innings to a score 50+.
Bradman was the only batsman with a ratio under 2.
From Walters at 4 to Cook at 25 the ratio ranges between 2.60 to 2.94, so many of these guys are fairly close together.
The top 3 seem to stand apart from the rest.

Walters is the surprise at his high placing.
It might look a bit different if only scores above 100 are taken into account. Might do that later.

1 D Bradman (Aus) 1.90
2 J Hobbs (Eng) 2.37
3 K Barrington (Eng) 2.38
4 D Walters (Aus) 2.60
5 V Richards (WI)
6 L Hutton (Eng)
7 J Kallis (SAF)
8 S Gavaskar (Ind)
9 S Tendulker (Ind)
10 I Bell (Eng)
11 G Chappell (Aus)
12 R Ponting (Aus)
13 K Sangakkara (SL)
14 M Hussey (Aus)
15 H Amla (SAF)
16 Inzamam-ul-Haq (Pak)
17 B Lara (WI)
18 S Chanderpaul (WI)
19 G Sobers (WI)
20 J Miandad (Pak)
21 T Samaraweera (SL)
22 D Compton (Eng)
23 G Greenidge (WI)
24 A Border (Aus)
25 A Cook (Eng)
