WHEN PACE MATTERS IN TEST BATTING

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

ONE OF DILSHAN'S FINEST ALL-ROUND PERFORMANCES

Tillakaratne Dilshan's two highest impact ODI performances came in consecutive home series' against the Proteas in 2013 and 2014. Here's one of them - the 2nd ODI at Pallekele (2014) where, opening the innings, he scored 86 (Sri Lanka 267) and then returned to take 3-40 (including the wickets of de Villiers and Miller). South Africa were bowled out for 180.

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?
