First things first, all the records in this article are from 01/01/1960. This date has been taken throughout the site as a benchmark for the ratings in test cricket. Two important criteria in our overall rating in tests are based on the performance of a player in away matches and in matches in unfamiliar conditions. Unfamiliar conditions are defined as Outside Asia for Asian batsmen and In Asia for Non-Asian batsmen. 1960s was the first decade in which 5 nations had a more than 1.0 win loss record at home. Pakistan had a 1.0 W/L record while India had a W/L record of a decent 0.75. This indicates that Asian teams had started to perform better at home and this improved with time. Thus we have considered only players who made their debut after 01/01/1960 for our ratings. We have labelled the era after December 31, 1959 as the Multi Team Era.
To calculate the best batsmen with the ability to score big, we took their top 10 scores in test cricket. We then simply rated them on the aggregate of their 10 best scores. The batsman with the highest total gets a Rating of 1,500 points and all other batsmen are given points as a ratio of his total. So without further ado, here are the top 25 batsmen with the best Big Innings Potential from the 1960s till date, i.e. July 1, 2020
