The TuffersColly and Vaughan series preview, with Curtley Ambrose and Mark Wood, was an interesting listen. Main points I took:

1. Wood sounds very uncertain of his technique which is a bit worrying for someone who has now played ten tests and started the summer as England's first reserve seamer.

2. Wood referred to Broad and Anderson by their surnames, which sounded a little odd when we're used to other England players referring to them almost universally as Stu and Jimmy. Was he just being respectful, or is there something else going on?

3. Ambrose said he'd usually determine what length to bowl on a pitch by the end of the first over. Recently our two all-time leading wicket takers still haven't figured this out by the end of the first day! I guess that's why Ambrose averaged 7-8 runs fewer for his wickets.

In fact, with 405 at 20.99, Ambrose is just behind two fellow famed WI quicks for the best average of players with 200 or more scalps (Marshall took 356 at 20.94 and Garner 259 at 20.97).

Not fair. Broad and Anderson had worked out the perfect length to bowl in order to avoid being driven but look showy enough to beat the bat without actually threatening to take a wicket by the end of the first over. They always do...

Would it not be a good time to be looking again at "newbies"? Give Ball and Woakes a go. Make Headingley and Lords a non Cook, Anderson, Broad game. Root as a new captain must play. Finn and Wood need to stake a place on the tour of Oz. I would like to see Rashid included.

That's what A team matches are for. Not really a fan of making wholesale changes for the sake of it. Especially people like Finn and Rashid whom the decision makers seem to have deemed not up to scratch - easy runs/wickets here won't tell us anything new. Plenty of time to rest players before the Ashes. Don't imagine Cook, Jimmy or Broad would be chuffed missing out on such a good chance to pad out their statistics.

Thanks, really interesting this - mainly because of the two stints Otis Gibson had as bowling coach and the vastly different results Anderson and Broad had in the two difference stints.

I think Broad improved under Saker. His bowling dry method helped Broad, after he was used as the enforcer. Now Stokes has sort of got that role.

A look at the bowling figures in Australia

Perth
4 Tests 21 wickets at 29.33 Starc
1 Test 3 wickets at 33.33 Broad
1 Test 3 wickets at 48.33 Stokes
2 Tests 6 wickets at 48.50 Anderson
4 Tests 12 wickets at 50.33 Lyon
2 Tests 6 wickets at 52.33 Hazelwood

Adelaide
2 Tests 15 wickets at 16.33 Hazelwood
2 Tests 9 wickets at 20.22 Starc
6 Tests 31 wickets at 27.80 Lyon
3 Tests 10 wickets at 35.50 Anderson
1 Test 2 wickets at 45.00 Stokes
2 Tests 4 wickets at 47.00 Broad

Brisbane
2 Tests 9 wickets at 25.11 Broad
6 Tests 26 wickets at 27.46 Lyon
3 Tests 13 wickets at 30.84 Hazelwood
4 Tests 17 wickets at 31.82 Starc
3 Tests 5 wickets at 89.80 Anderson

Sydney
1 Test 8 wickets at 20.12 Stokes
3 Tests 11 wickets at 20.72 Hazelwood
3 Test 13 wickets at 26.92 Anderson
3 Tests 11 wickets at 36.00 Starc
1 Test 4 wickets at 30.50 Broad
6 Tests 18 wickets at 51.05 Lyon

Melbourne
2 Tests 9 wickets at 23.11 Anderson
6 Tests 23 wickets at 30.00 Lyon
1 Tests 5 wickets at 32.20 Starc
1 Tests 3 wickets at 34.33 Broad
3 Tests 7 wickets at 41.85 Hazelwood
1 Test 2 wickets at 48.00 Stokes

See that bowlers like different grounds. Of the 5 fast bowlers all of them lead the averages at a particular ground.

Cummins has not played any of his 5 Tests in Australia. He has only played 2 f/c matches at Sydney, one in 2011, the last one in Mar 2017. 104/8 and Crane 116/5

Bowled

Wood 26%
Porter 22
Ball/Anderson 21
Stokes 18
Broad 17
Finn/Ali 16
Overton 15
Roland-Jones/Woakes 14

LBWs

Ball 24%
Roland-Jones 22
Porter 21
Overton 20
Ali 19
Woakes 18
Anderson/Broad/Stokes 15
Wood 13
Finn 12

The difference between bowled and lbw for some of those bowlers is interesting. Statistical anomaly or is there some other factor behind this?

Wood's bowled seems ridiculously high.

Well Wood is the fastest of the lot. A lot of played ons? Don't know why a low percentage of lbws.

Yes, the extra pace leading to a few more play-ons is the reason that occurred to me, but my impression is that play-ons aren't common enough to account for that much of a difference.

I think a bowler's reputation plays a part. Finn is tall and will be expected to generate bounce, so I suspect he gets fewer lbw decisions from umpires. Wood has a reputation of being skiddy though which should him get lbws.

Any other theories out there?

Some interesting stats there TYS both ground level and bowlers.

Perth looks like a bowlers graveyard since they changed the wickets and despite the SCG having a reputation for a spinners wicket Lyon has awful stats there.

With regards to LBW Ball is a pretty tall bowler who gets plenty of bounce, probably not as much as Finn but he has a very high LBW percentage.
