First surprise is Ramprakash

First surprise is Ramprakash and Hick - both pummeled first class runs but were total failures at test cricket. Next is the amount of guy will 200's in the days of uncovered wickets when I would have assumed batting was harder than some of the roads we have today. Finally no Indians on the list - is that even possible, they churn out so many batters with batting records it hard to believe there is none here.

Stormy, glad the video

Stormy, glad the video surprised you on so many counts!

Agree, Ramprakash & Hick were a disappointment on the int. stage.
Apart from the uncovered wickets, there wasn't any/very little protection available to the batsmen so what they achieved under those circumstances is phenomenal.

Perhaps, the reason why we don't have any Indians on that list is because in those days they didn't play much cricket. Also, there weren't many great batsmen who played for a long duration.
