Top 25 Test Batsmen In Top Form Away From Home

Kindly switch to Landscape Mode for better viewing experience

All Test Ratings on the website are from 01/01/1950 onwards (Know Why). Most of our ratings are dynamic, and as new matches are played, the rating of earlier batsmen may change if current batsmen set new benchmarks. Brief explanation of the ratings is given before each section (Detailed Explanation). Here are the Top 25 batsmen in their Top Form Away From Home in Test cricket.

*Note: All Test Ratings are updated till 2024-06-09

TF AW RATING

Points to note about TOP FORM – AWAY Rating:-

  • Top Form is calculated by taking the best 30 consecutive innings of a batsman.
  • There are three Top Form Ratings.
  • These 3 consider performances At Home, Away From Home or Overall

THE CRITERIA


The TF AW Rating is divided into four main sections:-

CRITERIA STAT POINTS
Prolific Runs Scored 300.00
Consistent Average 300.00
Big Innings Potential Top Scores 250.00
Attacking Strike Rate 150.00
The Trend Setter (TS)

TS is the player who does the best in a criteria. The rating of all other players are calculated taking the TS as the benchmark. Know All About TS. Here is a simple example:-

  • TS Runs: 2,000; Player X Runs: 1,000; Section Points: 250.00
  • TS Points: 250.00(Max); Player X Points: Runs/TS Runs X 250 = 1,000/2,000 X 250 = 125.00
  • Ratings of all sections are calculated similarly with Runs being replaced by the Criteria Stat.

ATTACKING


R SR

Relative Strike Rate (R SR) is calculated using the same method as R Ave with average being replaced with SR. Batsman who were active in earlier times benefit from this as SR was generally low earlier.

R4BF

Balls played by batsmen for many inns is not available for earlier times. When such is the case, we have used Runs For Balls Faced (R4BF) to determine the Strike Rate. This is the runs scored by the batsman for the available data of balls.
