Would be interesting if impossible to find out how our catches:drops ratio has changed over time, and how it compares against other Test nations, so that we know what the benchmark is.
Out of those 14, 5 are described by CricInfo as being tough chances, so we're running at an average of 2 dropped catches per Test which should have been taken. That does seem quite high...
Always surprised Trott never appears in the slip cordon to the fast men. He seems to be as good as any in that area and is only an average outfielder. I seem to remember a Warwickshire fan on here some time ago saying he was always rated really highly as a slip at Edgbaston?
