Default Australian batsmen more selfish than Indian batsmen

Hayden recently suggested that Subcontinental batsmen were selfish who slowed down between 70 to 100 runs in ODIs thus costing the team about 50 runs per innings. As per the statistics of Wisden ( link below), it is just the other way round if the statistics of Indian ODI centurions are compared with the Australian centurions in the past three years. As per the figures, the strike rate for various batsmen of India and Australia between 70 to 100 is as follows:

Player Centuries SR between 70 to 100
Sehwag 5 144.4
Ganguly 6 127.2
Laxman 4 121.6
Ponting 7 118.4
Tendulkar 7 116.3
Gilchrist 4 106.1
Hayden 3 105.1

As can be seen, Hayden does not practice what he preaches.

Playing spin, and selfish batsmen

In RSC, they were talking about the stats, SRT to be 10 not 7 and Lax to be 6 not 4.

Anyway, interesting to note that Hayden didn't singled out India in particular but the 'subcontinental batsmen'.

I don't understand that table? They all score over a run a ball between 70 and 100? Tendulkar only has 7 hundreds? I thought he had 30+? Ploise exploin

Read the article. Calculation since 2001. The article has both 0-70 and 70-100 stats.

What wonders me most is that the writer didn't count Pak and Lanka (even BD for that matter ) to be subcontinental!

Those are highly misleading stats as it doesnt take into account the times that batsmen get between 70-100. Quite often batsmen that slow down get tied down and go out doing so. You will see Hayden and others getting out between 70-100 lifting the scoring rate.
