Batsmen with more than 9000 runs

Thanks to the information available on Cricinfo website and Google's gadgets, I could create a gadget that shows the way each of the Great batsmen reached 9000 runs and beyond. Finally, there is just one person who stays on the chart - no points for guessing who - SACHIN TENDULKAR!!!



Feel free to try out various options on the chart and see how the comparison works.

The best way is to see the #Innings, Alphabetic order of batsmen, Average on each of the three axis - this is a good way to see who was faster to the milestones.

Updated the chart for players till matches held until 10th August 2010

Wow! Nice work.

Just to clarify (since I had trouble in sorting it out) - your suggested viewing was #Innings on Y-axis, Aphabetic-order on X-axis and size of dots representing averages. Then using the slider manually set to 5k runs, 6k runs etc. - we can see who took least number of innings (lower the better).

Can you also post another one using #Innings as the time-scale (instead of total-runs as in currently set). Then total-runs or avg can be seen as innings proceed - e.g. at 100 innings (i.e. same stage in career) how much each had scored & what was their average.

Thnx again for some kool visualization!

Thanks for your comment. I have updated the chart to show the size by the number of centuries of each batsman.
