Eng v. New Zealand 2nd test Old Trafford 23-27 May 2008

Kevin Pietersen has now equalled Marcus Trescothick's tally of 42 sixes in test cricket. But KP reached this number in a mere 72 innings compared with Trescothick's 143. He is just five behind Tendulkar's, Gibbs's and Mohammad Yousuf's 47 sixes, from 238, 154 and 134 innings respectively.

Top of the list is Gilchrist with 100, and not far below, Flintoff (77/110) and Botham (67/161).

Has Flintoff got past Chris Cairns yet then? I recall Cairns was the record holder. I see that he hasn't; Cairns got 87 of them.

The way KP is going he'll pass Flintoff in time, even allowing for the fact Flintoff may yet come back.

Maybe. Pietersen hit far more 6s early in his test career than he seems to now. He was blasting Australian bowlers over the ropes for fun in his first series, the 2005 Ashes.

Other players have played more innings before they made a duck, Geraint Jones being a well-known example among England players.
Anderson is currently on 1* in his 36th test innings.

This takes him to = 7th in the all-time list, equal with Dave Houghton.

The only current players above him are AB de Villiers and Yasir Hameed of Pakistan. Also they are all batsmen or all-rounders/wkeepers.

It's a good record for a bowler, but let's not forget he has 23 not outs, including ten 0*s: partly because he usually comes in at #11 and partly because the batsmen at the other end perceive him to be a #11 batsman, start looking for runs and get themselves out, leaving him high and dry.

No sixes in his innings today, and his slowest test century ever. 115 from 223 runs. I must say it didn't seem that slow to me.

The way Cricinfo was playing up yesterday he was half way there before they even put his name on the scorecard.

Yes, I was wondering whether he has a ton without a 6 in it before that one. I rather doubt it.

3 personal bests today.

and Anderson gets on the honours board for the 2nd time at TB. Maybe we should just use him for Tests at Lords and Trent Bridge.

Leading wicket takers so far for 2008

1. Steyn 7 Tests 44 wickets
2. Sidebottom 6* Tests 37 wickets
3. Lee 5 Tests 31 wickets
4. Martin 8* Tests 28 wickets
5. Anderson 5* Tests 26 wickets

James Anderson's 7/43 was the 3rd best bowling figures in an innings at Trent Bridge. Only Muralis 8/70 and Bosanquet's (an English leggie) 8/107 have bettered that so he now has the best figures from a pace bowler there.

In addition to this he also has the 3rd best figures for an Englishman against New Zealand. Only Derek Underwood's 7/32 and Gary Lock's 7/35 have been better.

With seven wickets from the Trent Bridge test, Sidebottom is now level with Steyn on 44 wickets from 7 tests.

That list was done mid Test. I should have waited until the end of the Test. Sidebottom has taken 42 wickets in his last 7 but that includes 1 Test in 2007.

2008
1. Steyn 7 Tests 44 wickets
2. Sidebottom 6 Tests 41 wickets
3. Lee 6* Tests 31 wickets
4. Martin 8 Tests 28 wickets
5. Anderson 5 Tests 27 wickets

Aren't Sidebottom's stats since his return a little skewed by great success V weak NZ and WI sides - and little success v the stronger India and Sri Lanka?

His stats being further skewed by the WK regularly dropping clangers in the stronger series mentioned that is true. I actually felt last year he bowled as well v India as he had v Windies with only a portion of the luck. Whilst its true that he didn't look too threatening when the shine went off the ball in SL it didn't help when it was helpful when the keeper put down several chances.

I think the dropped catches are balanced out by the amazing catches that were taken off his bowling in New Zealand. Broad has had catches dropped from his bowling but it doesn't get mentioned much.

Paul Collingwood is currently tied with Embury for 7th place in the all time leading wicket takers in One Day Internationals for England. If he takes 5 more wickets he will overtake Bob Wilis to become the 6th highest wicket taker. Gough tops the list followed by Flintoff and Botham who are 2nd equal and Anderson who is 4th.
