younus khan has only averaged less than 50 in a calender year once since 2004

he has the second best test match to hundred ratio after bradman with a hundred every 3.3 tests

in asia it is a hundred every 2.7 tests

averages 50+ at home/away and neutral venues

possibly the most underrated batsmen of this generation, his stats are as good if not better than tendulkar and dravid, his average of 54.4 is also on the way up

50 Percentage of the Ranji Trophy titles won by Mumbai - 41 out of 82.

The rest of the teams combined have won 50% of the finals. Mumbai have lost only four out of the 45 finals they reached, which is a win percentage of 91.11.

Australia and New Zealand have never faced each other at the World T20 (they will, this time around).

New Zealand have never lost to India in a T20I.


Can anyone confirm if there are any more combinations amongst the top 8 sides with these stats?

The highest scoring batter for England at WCT20s, with the best SR and average (min 100 runs) is Kevin Pietersen.

Data fail.

The eight players with the most WCT20 games are all Asian. The most games by a non Asian is by Stuart Broad.
