    A name game

    Assume you're England's coach.

    Q: What do you call a "batsman" who scores @ 24 runs an innings, after 73 ODI innings? (I prefer using runs per inning rather than runs per completed inning)
    A: You call him one of your top players.

    Q: What do you call a batsman who's made 25% of his career runs against the combined might of Bangladesh, Namibia, Netherlands and Zimbabwe?
    A: You say he can make a huge difference to your side

    Q: What do you call a side which won "60%" of its games in 2004 (W 12 L 8 NR 1 overall, but a record of W 7 L 8 NR 1 against teams not named Zimbabwe - 43.75% effectively) and "45%" in 2005 (W 8 L 10 T 2 NR 2, but a record of W 5 L 10 T 2 NR 2 against teams not named Bangladesh - 26.3% effectively)
    A: You say the side was heading in the right direction to put up a very good performance at the World Cup

    Q: What do you call a "batsman" whose last 10 ODI scores are 1, 57, 0, 0*, 0, 59, 1, 15, 26 and 17?
    A: You say that he's put up very consistent performances at the top of the order.
