Batting averages across innings-September 2021

No Test matches for a while, so we can do some overall reviews.

Batting averages (Minimum 20 innings, 50.00):

Mr 99.94 is well known, but No 2 has already been forgotten. No 3 is fast closing in on No 2’s 61.87. The only other current player in the top 10 is No 6 with 60.80.

The highest for India is by VG Kambli (!) at 54.20. Something similar to the case of AC Voges.

From India, there are also Tendulkar, Dravid, Gavaskar and Kohli.

Among current players, there are SPD Smith, M Labuschagne, KS Williamson, V Kohli and JE Root (who just manages 50+).

In following posts we will look at batting averages across innings.

Highest batting averages at each batting position-Tests (Part 3, No 1-11):

Here we look at overall batting averages:

While everyone knows the No 1, the next few positions have some surprises. Nos 2 and 4 (besides No 20) had the advantage of playing relatively fewer Tests, as well as the current player No 6.

No 3 and 6 are also going to be around for some time. Perhaps they can move to No 2.
