Ian Botham | Detailed Test Bowling Stats

All Test Ratings on the website are from 01/01/1950 onwards. Our ratings are based on conditions and diverse oppositions. Before the above mentioned date, there were primarily only two teams which dominated cricket. Moreover, matches were of unequal length with some ending in 4 days and some being timeless. Post 1950, West Indies and South Africa grew as test teams. Moreover, Asian teams India and Pakistan started improving after 1950 and became compenent at home at least. Performance in Asia and outside Asia are integral to our overall rating. It is to be noted that U.A.E. is considered as a second Home for Pakistan and Afghanistan. All Home and Away stats of Pakistani and Afghani batsmen are calculated accordingly.

*Note: All Test Ratings are updated till 2022-06-21
