WHEN PACE MATTERS IN TEST BATTING

The five highest Strike Rate Impact performances (in an innings context) in Test history.

THE KIWIS' RARE SUCCESS IN SA

New Zealand have won just three Tests in South Africa (out of a total of 23). Their last victory came in 1994-95 in the opener in Johannesburg (although they went on to lose the next two Tests). Here is a footage from that series where Simon Doull (highest impact bowler for NZ) and Shane Thomson (highest impact batsman for NZ) stood out for New Zealand.

SHANE WARNE OR MUTTIAH MURALITHARAN – THE GREATER TEST SPINNER?

Shubhartho Ghosh -compressed

Muralitharan’s numbers get a boost from playing a majority of his Tests at home. He picked up 493 wickets at 19.56 apiece. His average drops to 28 outside Sri Lanka.

 

Nikhil Narain

Muralitharan is the highest impact bowler in home conditions in the history of Test cricket. One tends to romanticize an English fast bowler doing well in England but look down upon the performances of spinners in conditions suited to slow bowling?
