according to this, ash's performance in traditionally pace-friendly lands (i.e outside the subcontinent) are quite a bit better than his overall career stats. these stats include all ODIs against G8 countries, in Aus, NZ, SA, WI, Eng, and Zim.

interestingly most of ash's top scores have come in these venues. 100, 94, 87, 73, 70.

so it might be better for him that the IPL was shifted to SA.

same parameters for a sachin tendulkar dimish considerbaly, his average goes down 6 pts, which is aprox 13-15% decrease from career averages.

adam gilchrist's stats also go down, showing tendulkar's subcontinent-ness is not a factor.

lara's stats went up marginally: http://stats.cricinfo.com/statsguru/engine/player/52337.html?class=2;filter=advanced;host=1;host=2;h ost=3;host=4;host=5;host=9;opposition=1;opposition =2;opposition=3;opposition=5;opposition=6;oppositi on=7;opposition=8;orderby=default;template=results ;type=batting

Very good dig Al-Furqaan bhaiya!
"...most of ash's top scores have come in these venues. 100, 94, 87, 73, 70." ~ this is a very good record. I hope and pray that our Ash fires up beyond beliefe in Afrika this time....like blitzkerz/kirg(spell?) like attack!

Al Furqaan - Ash's big score against Saffers was not on a pace friendly deck. It was on a classic, subcontinental style mud pitch in Guyana.

WI wickets are not bouncy. These are just a bit better than some of the subcontinent wickets.

wow not bad, he probably really enjoys the ball coming faster to the bat, so that he can use the pace more from the ball, rather than his own strength/force :P

well, i did it by venue...now traditionally Australia, England, South Africa, and New Zealand are considered "pace friendly". i added zimbabwe due to its proximity to SA, and WI because they've produced so many legedary pacers. left out pakistan since its part of the subcontinent.

i do remember the low slow track of guyana though. although the cardiff track had some bounce to it...not sure about the others, though i think nottingham was also fairly pacey. and his 73 against saffers came in SA last year...the tests had some pretty green tracks - as green as i've ever seen BD play on - so i'm assuming the ODI pitches weren't dust bowls.
