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.

Impressive record from Atherton at TB
