In this quiz, you have to name the Test batsmen whose batting averages never dipped below 40 during their careers.
Finishing your career with an average of 40 is one thing. Maintaining that average throughout your career is quite another. In total, only 18 players, with a minimum of 30 innings batted, have never let their averages drop below 40.
Two players, including one of Pakistan’s greatest, never let their averages drop below 50.
Courtesy of a poor debut, Don Bradman doesn’t feature. If you’re stuck, trying to remember batsmen who scored heavily on debut could be a good way to go, since they would have got a head start on maintaining a healthy average.
You have five minutes. Good luck!
