Thanks for this work

Can you also list who took the catches during this period?
58 - Prior
27 - Strauss
18 - Anderson
16 - Cook
14 - Swann
10 - Bell
9 - Pietersen
7 - Morgan
5 - Broad
4 - Bresnan
3 - Tremlett, Trott, Subs
2 - Bairstow, Taylor
1 - Bopara, Finn

So using those statistics, in order of total chances:

Prior- 89% successful catch rate
Strauss- 71%
Anderson- 75%
Cook- 67%
Swann- 67%
Bell- 67%
Pietersen- 75%
Bresnan- 50%
Morgan- 84%
Broad- 100%
Tremlett- 60%
Trott- 100%
Panesar- 0%
Finn- 50%
Bairstow- 100%
Taylor- 100%
Bopara- 100%

Obviously this doesn't take into account the difficulty of the respective catches, but perhaps a rough guide.

I've never fancied Bresnan at slip or gully tbf...

So Anderson is no longer in the slip cordon or as the slip to the spinners.

Halsall makes a point similar to one greyblazerr made earlier on this thread. Anderson needs a clear mind for bowling, especially on the subcontinent. He is a good catcher but has dropped a few recently; the effect of bowling his own overs then concentrating on slip fielding, particularly to the spinner, has become counterproductive.

Good news that Trott has finally made it to the slip cordon.

Will be interesting to see if that policy changes in NZ. I guess Jimmy will be at mid on then and Broad will be off to long leg!

So the problem of where to hide Jimmy in the field continues.

Trott's charade of pretending that he didn't know whether or not he had taken that catch was laughable. With so many television cameras around the ground, don't these players realise how stupid it looks to attempt to cheat in that manner.

That was horrible. And there seems to have been very little made of it. Imagine if Ponting or Afridi had pulled such a stunt?

Since the last Ashes there were 31 Tests 81 catches dropped.

Drops
15 - Swann
13 - Prior
11 - Strauss, Cook
8 - Anderson
5 - Bell, Trott, Bresnan
4 - Pietersen
3 - Panesar
2 - Tremlett, Finn, Root, Broad
1 - Morgan, Elstone

Bowlers who had catches dropped
24 - Anderson
23 - Swann
21 - Broad
5 - Tremlett, Finn
4 - Bresnan
3 - Panesar
2 - Patel
1 - Bopara, Onions, Pietersen

When it comes to the saying bowlers need to take 20 wickets, our bowlers need to take about 25.

Still to do - 4 Tests. When it comes to the saying bowlers need to take 20 wickets, our bowlers need to take about 25.
Interesting stuff. I think half of those dropped catches were against SA last year.

I meant to start an Ashes dropped catches thread but forgot, then I was away on holiday for the Lord's test so in the end didn't bother.

How many catches were taken by each in that same period?

Cook and Finn both dropped catches on the final day at Trent Bridge and Swann shelled two at slip at CLS. There must be loads more but I can't remember them off the top of my head. Perhaps KYS can jog our memory?

Dropped Catches in the 2013 Ashes - England

1st Test

30.5 Anderson to Starc, no run, full just outside off, pushed at and dropped at second slip that is a dolly shelled by Graeme Swann. Simple as you like down low with two hands and it bounced straight out, a rarity indeed but that was poor


92.4 Anderson to Siddle, 1 run, ! Cook has put Siddle down at first slip! A thick edge from Siddle and this has flown quickly to the left of Cook at first slip, it was really catchable. Should have taken that, despite the fact it was coming at a decent clip. The deflection off his hands also allows them to get through for a run


105.3 Swann to Haddin, FOUR, Haddin goes the big slog sweep and could this be caught? Yes, no! Finn at deep square leg has dropped it, but that's a very tough one, he's running around to his left and diving as he tries for the catch. And it runs away to the boundary through his fingers!

2nd Test


17.3 Swann to Khawaja, no run, dropped, a dolly for Trott at first slip! Khawaja pushes at a regulation offbreak and guided it into the fielder's hands but it popped straight out of the confectionery stand and to the turf


51.3 Swann to Harris, no run, chipped back and dropped, bursts through both hands as Swann reached to his left - second drop off Swann but he'll have to fume at himself this time


62.2 Broad to Siddle, no run, dropped, Root has made a mistake! Siddle pushed at a full delivery and sent an edge low to third slip where Root couldn't hang on. It was a simple chance. Broad waits for his 200th

71.2 Swann to Pattinson, 1 run, edged but it went quickly to Anderson's right in the gully and he could only deflect it into the air, Trott diving to try and get the rebound but it falls safe

3rd Test


111.4 Anderson to Haddin, no run, swings across the line, I think there's an under-edge but Prior has dropped it! Yep, Haddin definitely got bat on that, pulling at a short ball, Prior was moving to his right and had to dive the other way, he got there one-handed but it hit the wrist and fell to the ground. He'd back himself to take those

4th Test


26.5 Bresnan to Watson, no run, Bresnan drops it in his follow through, he pitched it straight and Watson drove it back in the air, Bresnan stuck his left hand out and just got a hand to it but couldn't hold on


27.6 Broad to Rogers, 1 run, edged this time, but Swann can't hold on to it at second slip, diving to his right. It would have gone to Cook at first but Swann came in between him and the ball. and it's a fifty for Rogers


9.3 Bresnan to Rogers, no run, good length, genuine nick and dropped by Swann again he was flying down with the right hand like in the first innings again off Rogers, he couldn't cling on, very tough chance


58.5 Broad to Lyon, no run, dropped, Broad was in line to get his tenth, Lyon was leaving this back of a length ball, when it zipped on and took the outside edge to fly to Swann at second slip, nice height but that really came fast, hit his hand and fell to the ground


58.6 Broad to Lyon, FOUR, another chance, tough one as Lyon cracks a full delivery straight and high at Broad, disappears down the ground

5th Test


46.1 Anderson to Watson, no run, dropped, oh what a moment! Excellent delivery, extra bounce from a good length, takes the shoulder of the bat and carries comfortably to the right of Cook

Named and shamed

Swann = 5
Cook = 2
Finn = 1
Trott = 1
Root = 1
Anderson = 1
Prior = 1
Bresnan = 1
Broad = 1
