Short stat: run-outs per run-run by team
Russell Degnan

A very short statistic today, in honour of Australia's top-3, who've recently made a habit of running each other out. A graph of run-runs (runs minus boundaries) per run-out, by decade and team for the top-order (positions 1-7).* Notice Australia are getting run-out at the highest rate since WW2:

On another note, New Zealand can ill-afford to be consistently the worst running team in test cricket.

* Excluding innings with no boundaries recorded, which is the easiest way to discount scorecards where it is not recorded.

Run-outs in the top order always make the batsmen look like idiots. You'd have thought with Watson being injured so often things would improve, but it seems not.
