Bradman top as always

Some detailed analysis has thrown up a few surprises about who the top 50 batsmen ever are, but no surprises that Bradman still comes out at number one. You can download the 20 page analysis here if you want to (after giving a few bits of information). The analysis looks at various criteria such as when the batsman scored their runs and makes a comparison to the total innings score, rather than simply looking at volume of runs. The main surprise - Vinod Kambli is right up there with the best of them...but then he was always amazingly talented even if he didn't have a very professional attitude to go with it.
