Yes, absolutely it's a judgement call, but it's a judgment call on who is the best bowler at this moment, not a youth vs experience call.

The selectors could look at

- the wicket and pick the bowler most likely to get wickets
- the bowler most likely to get runs as well
- most first class bowling experience
- who performed better in the warm up games

They could have already decided on which player was the reserve and give the chosen bowler a series especially if they have decided to blood a new young bowler if one of the fast bowlers were coming to the end of their career.

Take Johnson, he has another 10 years of bowling and they need to stick with him. If they had dropped him for a more experienced bowler after a poor match or two then where do they go when his replacement doesn't do well either. That has been England's problem, to find the third bowler for Gough and Caddick and then Hoggard and Harmison. There has been so much chopping and changing. Giddins, Silverwood, Cork, Tudor, Ormond, Johnson, Kirtley, Ali, Bicknell, Saggers, Plunkett, Mahmood, Lewis, Tremlett, Pattinson, a mixed bunch. In Gillespie's first three Tests he had taken 4 wickets at 46.00. McGrath in his first 5 Tests 12 wickets at 40.33. Many of the bowlers like Ormond, Tremlett, Johnson, Ali, Saggers, Lewis never got to more than 3 Tests.

If a bowler is going to play as an injury replacement for one Test then it is the bowler most likely to take the most wickets in the match. If it is for a series then I would go for the younger bowler but more important would be variety. Every bowler offering something different.

You'd have thought someone who got a high percentage of wickets clean bowled, would get a lot of lbws. Anderson's percentage of clean bowled looks incredibly high, yet his lbws is pitifully low. Broad's, Flintoff and Harmison's lbw totals are presumably partly explained by the bounce they get. But I'd have thought Anderson's would be more analogous to Hoggy's (and maybe Sideshow's, although its tricky to compare a left-arm lbw shout to a right-arm lbw shout). Hoggy got closer to the stumps, so I suppose the angles are different, and Jimmy will bowl more with his yorker and people dragging on wide long-hops.

When you look at first class matches (excluding Tests) it changes to bowled 21.9%, caught 34.7%, caught behind 21.9% and lbw 20.8% for Anderson. Our best lbw bowlers are Hoggard and Panesar. Broad and Harmison get more caught behinds that the other bowlers because of their bounce though Flintoff, also tall doesn't get as many.

well that explains the anomaly with Anderson then with his rate of bowled's.

Anderson does get some pretty spectacular bowled wickets though. Ganguly at Lords, Tendulkar at the Oval and McCullum at NZ stick long in the memory.

You missed out John Lever, of Essex and England, who played 8 tests in India between 1976/77 and 1981/82.

He took 37 wickets at 19.75 apiece with an economy rate of 2.74 and strike rate 43.1, putting him right near the top of your list.

I think it's mostly an issue of Anderson's angle of approach. He's too wide of the crease to get that many lbws except with the magic delivery that starts on the legs and swings a long way out and that ball is likely to bowl a batsman looking to work to leg anyway.

In Hoggard's case it is because he bowls wicket to wicket and can make it nip back. Panesar's come from pressure built by unrelenting accuracy and control. Batsmen pad up to straight balls or miss balls which pitch on the stumps and turn enough to hit (when if they did not turn would probably miss leg). He also gains from better umpires following Hair's lead and being more willing to give batsmen on the front foot and batsmen hiding the bat behind the pad (i.e. not really playing a stroke at all) out LBW to spinners than once they were.

Well it's definite, even if New Zealand selected Bond he has said he will never play for them again. As the ICL is not recognised and never likely to be I think we can say Bond (33) has retired from international cricket.

I don't blame him as New Zealand have really treated him badly. A wonderful bowler who had injury problems.

17 Tests 79 wickets at 22.39 econ 3.44 s/r 38.90
67 ODIs 125 wickets at 19.32 econ 4.20 s/r 27.50
9 20/20s 12 wickets at 20.33 econ 7.07 s/r 17.20

Best strike rate in ODIs by any bowler (1000 balls)
ODI hat-trick - White, Symonds, Bracken
Fastest bowler to 100 wickets in deliveries bowled
6 ODI and 3 Test MOMs
3rd best average in WCs - 30 wickets at 17.27

ODI / Test wickets
Top order 42.4% / 38%
Middle 35.2% / 44.3%
Tail 22.4% / 17.7%

Method ODIs/Tests
Bowled 24.8% / 19.0%
Caught 49.6% / 54.4%
Caught behind 17.6% / 15.2%
Lbw 8% / 11.4%

Fastest ball v Canada 95.3mph (anyone know of a faster one he has bowled)

It's a shame we won't see him on the international scene again. NZ missed a trick with letting him go to the ICL.

29 Tests - 100 wickets at 32.26 econ 3.28 s/r 58.80 - Pathan (24).....24
28 Tests - 91 wickets at 33.80 econ 3.86 s/r 52.40 - Malinga (25).....35
31 Tests - 69 wickets at 41.05 econ 3.26 s/r 75.40 - Mortaza (25).....41
