Not sure what to make of Wood. Looks decent enough but not convinced he is a wicket taker.

It's hard not to like the guy, but the best thing I can think of to say about him this summer is that when Aus won the match on day one at the Oval having been inserted, and no one could get Smith or Voges out, he looked more likely to do so than anyone else. There may have been higher highlights that I just don't recall at present, though.

He seems like the kind of player who has fun playing the game and doesn't take himself too seriously.

Trouble is I'm not sure he's the bowler you want to turn to when you need to take a wicket. I haven't got the stats but I would be surprised if he average much more than one wicket per innings for England across all formats.

It's 27 wickets in 14 games for England.

Wouldn't that be about 20 innings though? It's not. A great return.

I saw Wood on day five at lords against the Kiwis and he was very impressive. Fast and aggressive, he really roughed up the Kiwi batsmen. I wonder if his natural length is too short though.

Whenever I've seen Wood in the flesh he's looked impressive. To be fair he looks impressive on the TV too. His figures haven't really backed this up so far though.

You could say this about a lot of the non-Anderson/Broad bowlers though. In terms of wicket-taking potential he's an improvement on Woakes and Broad, around the same as Plunkett, not as good as Finn.

Did you mean to mention Broad twice?

Oops, replace Broad with Jordan.

I am surprised how little first class cricket he had played for Durham, 43 matches and he has just turned 28. Woakes, the same age has played 133.

I think give Woakes a rest in New Zealand and see how Wood does. England need to see how fast he bowls on the last day and can he play 2 Tests in a row.

When Broad and Anderson go, who will open the bowling?

You would want all three bowlers to offer something different to each other and be on the faster side. Over 6'4 would help.

Wood, Finn, Overton, Woakes, Roland-Jones, Curran, Tongue, Porter, Helm, Stone, Garton. Anyone else? Who will accompany Stokes?

I heard Mark Wood on a podcast earlier this week but can't for the life of me remember which one talking about the IPL auction and the ODI's.

He's not quick or tall but Sam Curran seems a likely replacement for Jimmy, in my eyes anyway.

Even before he played for England I believe Wood had trouble staying fit, hence why so few FC matches. I haven't seen much to suggest he can keep the pace up for long enough to be useful in Tests. I also can't see many express pace bowlers being able to play 14 first class matches in a summer so we won't develop many, if any at all. Personally I liked Overton in the Ashes, he wasn't that quick but he did have an effort ball that was about 86mph and someone with his height will be a handful. He looked like he enjoyed the fight as well.

Porter, Tongue, Woakes and Stokes.

Although maybe include a Curran as one of Woakes or Stokes is bound to be injured.

'With the 2019 World Cup such a major priority for this England set-up, and Wood's impact on the international stage having been most significant in the 50-over game.....

Tests 40.65 (10)
ODIs 44.16 (23) s/r 49.0
T20s 17.37 (4)



I think Finn (29.37 s/r 34.8) is more effective. It really depends on whether England want speed or bounce.

---
'Wood did ponder whether the IPL was the right thing, but not just because of his injury record - he wanted to be sure it wouldn't affect his Test chances.

"I wouldn't play very much for Durham at the start of the season, and therefore would I be in line for Tests? Having had a chat with Trevor [Bayliss] and Rooty, if I'm firing it hopefully wouldn't be an issue.

So where does red ball practice come in. Days in the field and bowling 40 overs. Would he have any matches for Durham?

Wood bowling 40 overs in a game seems a tad optimistic, plenty of people would be pleasantly surprised if he could bowl 40 in a season!
