So although Swann actually got 6 MotM awards, it's still interesting that Moeen has such a relatively good strike rate for them versus him and especially Panesar. I guess batting too helps.

One of them is due to his getting two goes on that Lords wicket (though credit to him for using it).

Panesar never really had a batting, or indeed fielding, string to his bow.

Any road up, few MoM awards are indisputable so how reliable they are as an indicator of quality is rather open to doubt.

Most Test runs

Lords - Gooch 2015
Oval - Hutton 1521
Trent Bridge - Atherton 1083
Headingley - Bradman 963
Edgbaston - Cook 856
Old Trafford - Compton 818
Riverside - Cook 315
Rose Bowl - Bell 309
Sophia Gardens - Trott 203

Was wondering if Cook could get to most runs at all the grounds - needs
TB 732, Oval 522, Headingley 325, Lords 194, Old Trafford 133, Rose bowl 89, Sophia Gardens 22

Don't think so. One ground will hold him back. His ave at TB is 21.93. Broad has made more runs here. Might miss out at Headingley as well as England won't be playing there every year in the next 5 years.

Should be able to nail HQ and OT. Lucky he got Durham before the end.

Who is the best Englishman at Headingley?

I doubt he'll threaten Clem Hill's aggregate at Bramall Lane.

Anyone clocked that Root just became third fastest (in terms of innings) to hit 4000 ODI runs? Only Amla and Richards quicker

Rengana Herath becomes the first left arm spinner to take over 400 test wickets as he helps Sri Lanka become the first side to defeat Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

Quite a final day.

The highest score in Australia's second innings of 138 in Adelaide was just 20. Have there been any higher totals than this with no one making more than 20? asked Justin Thompson from Australia

That's a good spot, as Australia's 138 in Adelaide last week turns out to be the highest completed innings in which no one passed 20. The previous highest was 134, by Bangladesh against Pakistan in Multan in August 2001, when the best individual score was Mehrab Hossain's 19 (seven of his team-mates made double figures).

There have been 12 other all-out totals of 100 or more which did not feature an individual contribution above 20:
- 118 by New Zealand against Sri Lanka in Galle in 2012-13 (highest score 20 by Daniel Flynn)
- 114 by Australia v West Indies in Melbourne in 1988-89 (20 by David Boon and Allan Border)
- 110 by England v South Africa at Lord's in 1998 (Nasser Hussain 15)
- 107 by West Indies v Australia in Melbourne in 1930-31 (Ivan Barrow 17)
- 107 by Pakistan v Australia in Melbourne in 1989-90 (Ijaz Ahmed 19)
- 106 by Pakistan v West Indies in Bridgetown in 1957-58 (Imtiaz Ahmed 20
- 104 by Australia v England in the very first Test of all, in Melbourne in 1876-77 (20 by Tom Horan)
- 104 by Australia v England at The Oval in 1997 (Ricky Ponting 20)
- 102 by Zimbabwe v South Africa in Harare in 1999-2000 (Neil Johnson 20)
- 102 by Bangladesh v South Africa in Dhaka in 2002-03 (Khaled Mahmud 20 not out)
- 100 by Pakistan v England at Lord's in 1962 (Nasim-ul-Ghani 17)
- 100 by India v South Africa in Durban in 1996-97 (Sourav Ganguly 16).
