What surprised me was to see

What surprised me was to see all those old timers before the war still appearing on this list after all these years. They played on uncoverd wickets. Also not many modern English players on the list which is probably reflection of the great SA attacks in modern times.

Great observation Stormy!

The SA batting & bowling in the last decade has been one of the best in the world, which is why we see all the recent high scores against the S. African batsmen's name, and don't find English batsmen with high scores in that period.

The pre-war SA were not a strong side, so it was relatively easy to make runs against them compared to the last decade and a half when they had one of the best attacks in the world. But as you said, those guys played on uncovered wickets, so it does make their effort special.
