Default Swinging 60


A beautiful analysis on what it takes to be averaging 60 in tests.

It is unbelievable, but true. In 139 years of Test cricket and with over 2500 batsmen in the fray, only 14 batsmen have reached the pinnacle of a batting average of 60, not forgetting the other qualification of 3000 runs. At the end of the article I have given a list of top batsmen who have missed this distinction. The quality of batsmen in that list will confirm how difficult this achievement is. The table below provides the complete list of these 14 batsmen, the highest average reached by them and the number of Tests at the end of which the batsmen had batting averages of 60.
The last test match that was played was 2 months ago, Baz's final test.

Lol at first I thought it was going to be about bowlers with an avg over 60 in test cricket, we'd have been the best in the business

Mominul needs to keep scoring a lot of runs and make 3000 to make this list. At this moment, patriotic lens aside, Mominul is not worthy of holding the jockstrap of the people on that first list. মানে কই আগরতলা কই চকিড়তলা.
