Seeing Latham and Williamson's average together has made me interested in how our partnerships are performing.
Latham-Raval average 38
Williamson-Latham and -Raval are both 50+
Taylor-Williamson is 50+, -Latham is 48 -Raval under 30
Nicholls-Latham is 96, - Raval is 33, -Williamson is 41, -Taylor is 53
Obviously some of those are very small samples (although Latham-Nicholls have 3 hundred stands from 6 attempts).
Overall, it emphasises the class of Kane, but also Latham, Taylor and Nicholls. It means we average almost 100 on the board before Taylor comes into bat which must be a nice change for him.
Raval comes out looking a bit poor in this! He's the common factor in all the partnerships under 40, but part of that will be because of the small sample and probably also partly because he's had trouble converting starts, so those lower partnerships will be more commonly because we're collapsing rather than because he's racking up a Lathamesque big ton.
