Bangladesh test captain Mominul Haque averages over 40 in test cricket with 10 centuries, but has an unflattering record away from home.
10 Mominul Haque
Bangladesh test captain Mominul Haque has now scored a total of 3048 runs from 78 innings in test cricket at an average of 41.19 and a strike rate of 55.52. It was on the back of his brilliant performances at home that he was named the test captain of the side.
While Haque has been consistent at home recently, raking up another century in the test series against West Indies in his home conditions, his record has been questionable away from home. As opposed to having scored 2312 runs in 45 innings at home in test cricket at an average of 56.39, with the help of 10 centuries and seven half centuries, the Bangladesh skipper has managed only 736 runs from 33 test innings away from home at an average just 22.30 with six half centuries and no century.
7 Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma is another strange case. Sharma has scored a total of 2566 runs from 63 test innings and an average of 46.65 and a strike rate of 59.21 with the help of seven centuries. However, he is yet to score a test century away from home. Rohit’s record at home is dominating with him having scored 1621 runs from 26 test innings at an average of over 80. These numbers plummet away from home, with Sharma having managed six half centuries and no century at an average of just 27.
5 FS Jackson/ Chandu Borde/ M Labuschagne
Three test cricketers have scored five centuries at home but have not managed a single ton away from home. The first name among them is of Stanley Jackson also known as FS Jackson, who represented England. Interestingly, despite having played 36 test innings at home, Jackson did not play a single match away from home. As a result, each of his five centuries and 6 half centuries came in England. Jackson scored 1415 runs at an average of 48.79.
India’s Chandu Borde was prolific at home, scoring 2209 runs from 57 test innings at home at an average of 43.31. He struck five centuries and 12 half centuries with the best of 177 not out. However, he could manage just 852 runs from 38 test innings away from home with six half centuries and no century at an average of 24.34.
Australia’s Marnus Labuschagne is also yet to score an away ton.
