For instance, Bradman's 1930 series had an average Pitch Quality Index of 57, indicating a relatively batsman-dominated series. Muralitharan averaged 11 WpT in a two-Test series and 10 WpT in a three-Test series. A high value of this indicates a tough series and a low one, a rather friendly one. Allan Border in 1981 is the only other batsman to exceed 5.0. If I draw a line across, from (30, 3000) to (50, 4500), only one of the top series performers, Barnes, is clearly to the right of the line.
