Weaker attack around you means more wickets but at a higher average, yes.

Plus if there's no pressure from the other end it's easier for the batsmen to concentrate on seeing off the pro.

The Cricket Prof. ‏@CricProf
James Anderson can this summer become the first pace bowler to take 50+ Test wickets v seven opponents. Needs 10 v Sri Lanka, 5 v Pakistan.

Current most for a pace bowler is McGrath's six. Murali had 50+ wickets against nine opponents

On this day....
12 July

2009
Anderson and Panesar batted out 11.3 overs for a draw in Cardiff

2014
Root and Anderson put on 198 for the highest 10 wicket partnership

last such was in india
Australia enforced follw-on, india bats again, Laxman hits 281 and Dravid 180. until near tea on day 5 , aus. only loose 2 wickets but after tea herby took 7 wicket in 51 ball and Australia loose test.

I never heard before, team loose after enforcing follow-on and you loose test.

india vs England test produced 588 runs @ day still world record in 4 day test.
I think those days new ball not taken after 80 or 90 overs so more runs scores plus I bet they play more than 90 over.i ask cricinfo [ rajesh puri ] on tweeter but they not provide information more. I think they play test on day one on Saturday , next day rest day and return on Monday to post 588 by both team including indian opener scores 190 after tea.those are 8 ball over and game ends after 4 days.

The three Test series between England and Sri Lanka was a welcome change for the cricket lovers after an overdose of Twenty20 cricket. After the run-fest in India in the T20s, the bowlers had their say in the outcome of the series that England clinched 2-0.

They last day of the final Test at Lord's on Monday (June 13) got shortened by rain and Sri Lanka managed to avoid a whitewash from a team other than Australia (thrice) or India (once).

During the course of the series, Alastair Cook became the first England player and youngest to reach the 10,000-run mark in Tests while Rangana Herath became the second oldest to take 300 Test wickets. More than the top order, it was the lower middle-order that came up with promising performances with the bat - especially the wicketkeepers.

Stats excerpts from the three-match Test series:

717 Runs scored by England players batting at positions six to eight in 12 innings at an average of 79.66 with three hundreds. In contrast, their top five scored only 679 runs from 23 innings at 32.33 with a highest of 94.

2 Wickets taken by English spinners in this series - the fewest by them in a series since 1999 having three or more Tests.

3 Number of dismissals for Alex Hales between 80 and 99 in the series. He is the third England batsman to achieve this unlucky feat after Jack Hobbs (vs South Africa in 1913-14) and Ken Barrington (vs India in 1959).

559 Runs scored by wicketkeepers in the series - the joint second most in a series having three or fewer Tests. A total of 568 runs were scored in the series between Australia and South Africa in South Africa in 2002 is the most.

69.87 Combined batting average of wicketkeepers in the series - third most in a Test series which had at least nine innings batted by wicketkeepers.

3 Hundreds scored by wicketkeepers in the series - only the fifth time in history that these many hundreds have been scored by wicketkeepers in one series.

480 Runs scored by Sri Lanka in their first innings in the three Tests. Sri Lanka managed just 91, 101 and 288. They have had a fewer aggregate only once before - 430 against South Africa in 2000-01 where the scores were 216, 95 and 119.

2 Number of times Sri Lanka followed on in this series. The last time they did it in consecutive Tests was way back in 1994 against India in Lucknow and Bangalore.

10.80 Bowling average of James Anderson in this series. He took 21 wickets including three five-wicket hauls. This after he had 30 wickets at an average of 30.30 in his last eight Tests against the same opposition.

0 Instances of an English pacer has averaged better than James Anderson's 10.80 in a series in the last 100 years (minimum 20 wickets).

6 Number of wins for England at Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street in as many Tests - the most for a team at a particular venue with a 100 percent win rate.

2 Number of hundreds scored by England No. 7 in this series. This was the third instance overall in Test history. On both occasions, Ian Botham did it all alone - against Pakistan in 1978 and Australia in 1981 at home.

10, 10 and 10 Opening wicket partnerships for Sri Lanka in the first three innings of this series. They did well in the second half of the series scoring 38, 108 and 45.

1 Six hit by Alastair Cook in the second innings at Lord's. It was his 11th six overall in Tests and first since December 2012. Five out of his 11 sixes came in the year 2012.

5 Draws for Sri Lanka at Lord's in the last five Tests. The last time they lost a Test at Lord's was way back in 1991.

21 Wins as captain for Alastair Cook in 48 Tests. He became the fourth England captain to win 20 or more tests after Michael Vaughan (26), Andrew Strauss (24) and Peter May (20).

These are historic records of achievement in ODIs. Trescothick and Collingwood retired a few years ago, and Bell more recently. KP will never play for England again. You have quoted something posted in 2008. Bell and Collingwood are and remain England's leading ODI run scorers and the current players with the best chance of overtaking them have some way to go.

By the way, Trott retired from ODIs some time ago, a long way short of being a leading run scorer, and Hildreth has never played international cricket.

Shan Masood lasted for 34 balls against Jimmy Anderson which is a record for the times he has faced him. Improvement.
