Cricket Quiz: Anonymous Test Batting Averages

Guess the Test records from Player R to Player K(P) – clue: all of the above will at the very least quietly fancy their chances of making an impact in the forthcoming England-Sri Lanka Test Series. Well, apart from one…

 

Player R: 955 runs at 36.73, including 2 centuries at a strike rate of 39.

Player S: 42 runs at 42.00, no centuries at a strike rate of 50.

Player T: 875 runs at 51.47, with 3 centuries at a strike rate of 58.

Player U: 104 runs at 13.00, no centuries at a strike rate of 36.

Player V: 593 runs at 26.95, including 4 half centuries at a strike rate of 48.

Player W: 700 runs at 30.43, including 2 centuries at a strike rate of 55.

Player X: 25 runs at 12.50, no centuries at a strike rate of 32.

Player Y: 479 runs at 31.93, including 2 centuries at a strike rate of 35.

Player Z: 575 runs at 31.94, including 3 centuries at a strike rate of 53.

Player K(P): 8181 runs at 47.28, including 23 centuries at a strike rate of 62.

 

Feel free to guess in the comments below, or via Twitter (or just in your head). Try not to use Cricinfo. There is a prize shout-out to the person with the most correct, and I’ll try to write a poem about them too.

Answers will be REVEALED at 4pm today. Unless I’m busy. Actually, thinking about it they’ll probably be REVEALED not at 4pm, but when I get more than 1 response. So potentially never. Try anyway.

I'll muse on various subjects, mainly involving willow, leather and grass. My natural instincts is to heap as many compound adjectives as I can to sporting natterings. If you like, then feel free to link :)

    R is Joe Root, Y is Nick Compton, Z is Bopara, W is Morgan, V is Bairstow, can’t think of a current player for England with three tons, so guess T as Chandimal, S I think is Woakes (because Ballance was out twice in Sydney), X my guess is Ballance, but I thought he got more at Sydney (like Pietersen I was disengaged by then).

    Struggling with U. I don’t think it’s Finn, because he got a half century in Dunedin. It’s too many runs for Onions. Don’t think Panesar fits. Wild guess, James Foster. I have no idea who KP is.
