Who Is the Best All-Round Batsman in the World Right Now? July 2014
Eranga Jayawardena/Associated Press

It’s that time again, where we try and deduce who the best batsman in the world right now is through the use of facts, figures and statistics.

It isn’t an easy mission, as we analyse players’ performances across all three formats of the game of cricket, take their ICC ratings and form our conclusions based on them.

There are pitfalls along the way, but hopefully by using raw data rather than subjective opinions, our findings can be relevant and at least somewhat useful.

We last tried to work out the best batsman in the world in April, and since then a great deal has changed in world cricket.

Some teams have played while others have remained idle; some players have impressed while others have not done so.

Could we have another new name at No. 1, or will it be someone we’ve come across before?

Let’s find out.

All stats courtesy of ICC Player Rankings, correct as of 14 July 2014.
