Craig McMillans Career Scores (updated) 

Could just about be time to get back into this again. New season under way and all.

McMillan is a good place to start a he's been dropped and might not get a chance to alter these anytime soon or ever for that matter. Although with the resources we have he might be batting at 5 and captaining the team in 3 weeks.

Overall test stats: 52 tests, 86 inn, 10*, 3046 runs, HS 142, ave. 40.07, 6 100s, 19 50s

[0-9] (23) 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3*, 4, 4, 4, 6, 6, 6, 9

[10-19] (13) 10, 13, 14, 15, 15, 15, 16, 17* 18, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19

[20-29] (9) 20, 22, 22, 22*, 23, 23*, 24, 24, 25, 26, 26

[30-39] (7) 30, 30, 31, 31, 31*, 34, 39, 40

[40-49] (4) 41, 41, 41, 45

[50-59] (7) 50* 51, 54, 54, 54, 54, 55, 58

[60-69] (0)

[70-79] (4) 70, 74*, 78, 78, 79

[80-89] (3) 82, 83*, 84, 88

[90-99] (2) 92, 98

[100+] (4) 100*, 106, 107*, 139, 142, 142

Which equals (using our earlier criteria which you can see in a bit more depth here):
Craig McMillan
Doing His Job = 37 innings (45%)
Not Doing His Job = 45 innings (55%)
(doing his job means scores of 30 or more, while not doing his job is dismaissals under 30)

22 failures from 82 innings = 27%
(failures are scores of 10 or less)

More to come over the coming months as they become worthwhile to look at or update. Most likely after the tests v Australia.

But in the meantime, these are the scores of the batsmen we covered since we collected and analysed their statistics early in the year with average in brackets.

McMillan 0, 30 (15.0)
Astle 2, 8, 15, 0, 11, 39 (12.5)
Fleming 97, 11, 117, 45, 29, 202 (83.5)
Richardson 13, 40, 73, 49, 15, 28 (36.33)

Next time round it will be worth having a look at Oram, Styris and Sinclair (since he seems to be back in favour) and possibly McCullum after he gets 4 knocks v the Aussies in November.

We have 7 tests this summer. Two in Australia in November, Two v Sri Lanka at home in mid to late January and then three v Australia in March also in NZ.

If anybody comes out of those tests with good looking figures then they'll have done well (probably against Sri Lanka ;) )

Comments:
I'm actually more concerned about the likely adjustments to the bowling averages...

For example, Franklin's average of 19.40 may come under a little pressure
 
I doubt he'll leave aussie with anything near 19 as his average. Anybody who finishes a series there with 35 runs per wicket has done alright.
 
Yeah, Vettori was the only one to average < 35 last time round (33.84), and your mate Macca was next!

And Bond's triumphant series introduction ended with 3 wickets at 96.
