uwe-r. Not a bad rule of thumb, but 500 an innings is wishful. Duncan Fletcher set a target of 400 for the 2005 series as being their target first innings score, which more often than not meant someone getting a ton, he reckoned if you got 400 then you’d generally be in a strong position.
Cricket’s not just about centurions, it’s about partnerships – hopefully trotty can just bat and bat and let bell and Bairstow and Prior form partnerships along the way. If these 3 can average 60 or so per partnership, that’ll put us close to 300 which is a solid base.

My 50 a wicket is the base level for the top order, i.e. first 4 batsman to post 200+, you then would expect things to tail off but with a half decent final score for the innings. We are 130 for 4 as I type which is poop but as ever a decent partnership could transform the look of the scoreboard.Posted 4 years ago
