Alec Stewart and Geoffrey Boycott talk cricket statistics.

On the 2nd day of the 2nd Test against South Africa at Headingley, Alec Stewart and Geoffrey Boycott discussed Andrew Strauss passing Len Hutton to become England’s 8th leading run-scorer in Test matches.  This is what they said:

AS: The league table doesn’t lie.  Look at the top three (Gooch 1st, AS 2nd and Gower 3rd).  And at number four: Sir Geoffrey.  What are you doing down there?

GB: Look how many matches you played.  133.  Miles more than any of us.  And look at your average.

AS: You have to remember.  I played for the team and not for myself.
