    Would you drop him?

    This player's last ten completed tests (15 inngs) have got him 380 runs, nearly half of which were made in just two innings. He averages 25.3 in this sample set. His latest inning drags the average down further. Would you have a different set of standards or do you recommend dropping this player?

    Or one that averages 20 in his last 10 innings - this guy

    Or maybe, this one with an average of 22.

    Or what about a bowler that has 1 for over 200 in his last 4 one days - is he any good?

    Stu: Point taken. But my sample size was over ten tests. Your examples are over 5 tests, 4 one-dayers etc. Surely there is a difference.

    Stat's can say whatever you want/need them to say. Measure all of those guys careers - that's all there is to measure. That's all that counts. IMHO, Gilchrist stays as long as he likes, purely because he's a champion, and always been a luxury to have coming in, late in the order, Australia is still winning, and he just might...:-)

    stu: True. It pays to never write-off champions - see Australia's comeback after the Wanderers runfest. But there is no doubting the fact that Gilchrist's poor run is worrying, as is Tendulkar's poor run. You can't assume that these superb players will eventually come good.
