I did notice quite a few going past Ambrose for four yesterday. Let's not mention who was bowling.

I thought I told you not to mention it! Still, that's a fairly equal spread.

15 @ 33 = career furfilling greatness
13 @ 31 = needs to sort it out or he'll be dropped.

I could never work stats out.

Are you any good at working out how pretty boys are though?

To think, with four balls remaining in his spell Broad had the unlikely figures of 9.2-2-11-5. I remember that Collingwood's figures were against Bangladesh. Do you know the opposition for Ealham, Marks and White FBU?

Ealham v Zimbabwe 2000
http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ci/en...tch/66093.html
Marks v New Zealand 1984
http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ci/en...tch/64223.html
White v Zimbabwe 2000
http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/ci/en...tch/64649.html

If it wasn't for Nel, Broad would have had the 2nd best ODI figures.

Was the Ealham game the one where he got 5 lbws?

Yes it was, I only had to click on FBU's link.

The Bangladesh game was a bit freakish - as i recall it was also tremlett's debut and he came breathtakingly close to a hat trick when the ball rolled back onto the stumps but the bails stayed on.

It actually bounced on the top of them without dislodgning a bail. Still got the highlights of that game somewhere.

Irani 7-1-26-5 - against India, and he got a 50 in the same game. Top work Ronnie.

Given the opposition I rate Broad's as the best effort by an England bowler (Nel's 3 slogged boundaries notwithstanding).

Fair point.

Isn't it astounding to realise that Broad is the only front-line pace bowler in this list? That is appropriate to Psyduck's comment about the opposition.

Patel's 5/41 is the best performance by an England spin bowler in ODIs since Ashley Giles's 5/57 v. India in 2001/2.
