Well if he gets no more no balls in the match it will be - Tests played 18, no balls 145.
Broad 23 Tests - 11 no balls.

Trott and de Wet haven't played enough Tests to show their true figures. Probably Duminy and Plunkett as well. Interesting to note the difference in lbws for Swann and Harris.

Bowl Onions and Swann when Amla and Smith are new at the crease for lbws.

Ouch Anderson really has had a lot of work to do in comparison to the other seamers. How many has Swann bowled?

How did Sidebottom bowl 516 overs without anyone noticing? Is he some sort of stealth bowler or something?

Very few fast bowlers have bowled over 500 Test overs in a year. Mitchell Johnson is the only fast bowler to do it in two consecutive years. McGrath did it 3 times in his career but spaced out. Walsh did it twice, also spaced out. Also Kapil Dev. Looking at bowlers who have taken 100+ wickets the following have bowled over 500 overs once

Pollock, Ntini, Marshall, Lillee, Donald, Garner, Gillespie, Hoggard, Flintoff, Harmison, Hughes, Arnold and Ghavri.

Two of those bowlers have reached 600 in a year, Lillee 618.2 and Garner 604.2.

Hoggard made the 500 mark in 2006 but the next year was injured after an injury free career. It is worrying the number of overs Johnson is bowling especially at his speed. Watson has come into the side recently but he doesn't do that much bowling because he has been injury prone and has been spending quite a lot of time batting (30 hours at the crease this year in 7 Tests). It will be interesting to see if Johnson will be able do it for 3 years in a row. I think he will pick up some injuries or his speed will go down. He also bowls in the ODIs.

08/09

Johnson 585/502.5
Clark 361/47
Lee 580/injured
Siddle 133.5/432
Bollinger DNB/162.2
Hilfenhaus DNB/328.5

One of the commentators was saying that the Kookaburra ball has not been swinging this year because the manufacturers have made a change. Less laquer and thinner leather so that the ball does not discolour. It seems the MCC are aware of this.

'The Committee also understands that a new white ball has just been produced that will last the full 50 overs, although this requires a trial as soon as practicable'.

Well the ball has looked in good condition at the change in England but I can't see that happening in India. We are more likely to use the pink ball in the end and get rid of the ball change rule.

Kirsten is worried about seam options. These are the usual suspects in the last few years. Khan and Sreesanth are injured at the moment.

72 Tests 242 wickets at 32.98 econ 3.3259.5 - Khan (31)
29 Tests 100 wickets at 32.26 econ 3.28 s/r 58.8 - Pathan (25)
23 Tests 66 wickets at 34.93 econ 3.27 s/r 64.0 - Sharma (21)
17 Tests 60 wickets at 32.01 econ 3.40 s/r 56.4 - Sreesanth (27)
13 Tests 40 wickets at 39.10 econ 4.02 s/r 58.2 - RP Singh (24)
12 Tests 34 wickets at 36.17 econ 3.08 s/r 70.4 - Patel (27)
8 Tests 27 wickets at 37.18 econ 3.43 s/r 65.0 - Balaji (28)


What about Umesh Yadav (22). 11 f/c matches at 21.95 econ 2.94 s/r 44.7. Pace in the high eighties.

Surprisingly rubbish set of stats but then Indian wickets don't tend to suit seam all that much. Course, Khan has been pretty good more recently, with his stats dragged down a little by a weak earlier career.

Yadav's pace is more in the mid 80s, once you escape from the realm of T20 cricket. He can crank up the odd spell, but his pace is really nothing to write home about. He has also played a lot in the Ranji Trophy Plate competition, which is like Division Two county cricket, but a much lower level - so do not read too much into the stats.

2010 attack v 2005 attack

With Mohammed Asif reaching 100 wickets today I thought it might be interesting to see how the 2010 attack compare to the vintage 2005 attack int terms of the time it took them to reach milestones.

Hoggard - 248 wickets at 30.50 7x5WI 1x10WM SR 56.08
Played 67 tests so averages wickets 3.70 per test.

Milestones
50 wickets - 12 games
100 wickets - 29 games
150 wickets - 40 games
200 wickets - 52 games

Harmison - 222 wickets (for England) at 31.94 8x5WI 1x10WM SR 59.4
Played 62 tests for England so averages 3.58 per test.

Milestones
50 wickets - 13 games (the 7/12 game)
100 wickets - 23 games
150 wickets - 38 games
200 wickets - 53 games

Flintoff - 219 wickets (for England) at 33.34 3x5WI SR 67.3
Played 78 tests for England so averages 2.81 per test.

Milestones
50 wickets - 28 games
100 wickets - 43 games
150 wickets - 53 games
200 wickets - 70 games

Jones - 59 wickets at 28.24 3x5WI SR 47.81 Averages 3.28 wickets per test.
50 wickets - 17 games

Giles - 143 wickets at 40.60 5x5WI SR 85.1
Played 54 tests so averages 2.65 per test.

Milestones
50 wickets - 19 games
100 wickets - 37 games



Anderson - 170 wickets from 49 tests (includes this one) at 33.55 9x5WI SR 59.14

Currently averages 3.47 wickets per test

Milestones
50 wickets - 17 games
100 wickets - 29 games
150 wickets - 45 games

Broad - 84 wickets from 29 games (including this one) at 36.43 3x5WI SR 67.77
Averages 2.90 wickets per test.

Milestones
50 wickets - 19 games

Should reach 100 wickets in this series.

Finn - 22 wickets from 5 games at 21.14 2x5WI SR 35.18

Averages 4.4 wickets per game

Swann - 91 wickets from 21 games at 30.15 7x5WI 1x10WM SR 60.30

Milestones
50 wickets - 13 tests

Should reach 100 wickets this series.


It's not really too surprising that Anderson is ahead of Flintoff but behind Hoggard and Harmison in reaching major milestones. However it is a surprise that Broad has reached 29 tests and is yet to reach 100 wickets. He does appear to blow hot and cold in tests. He can bowl a blinding spell to win you a game but doesn't pick up as many wickets as he should do in the other games.

Finn has started very quickly and is bound to find life tough later and Swann is streets ahead of Giles in terms of milestones!

The England boys will be practising with the Kookaburra ball once the Pakistan series is finished.

Spin Bowlers wickets by batting order

Top order 1-3 ~ Middle Order 4-7 ~ Tail 8-11

32.7% - 40.7% - 26.5% - Swann
27.2% - 47.8% - 25.0% - Harris
27.1% - 33.9% - 39.0% - Hauritz
26.2% - 39.7% - 34.2% - Vettori
25.3% - 42.3% - 32.5% - Murali
25.3% - 49.3% - 25.3% - Al Hasan
25.0% - 38.6% - 36.4% - Harbhajan
23.0% - 44.4% - 32.5% - Panesar
23.0% - 46.0% - 31.0% - Kaneria

Watching Hauritz wicketless for most of the innings and then pick up tail end wickets made me look at what other bowlers do. The bulk of their wickets are usually the middle order.

You don't even need to look at what is there in the article but if you haven't seen it look out for the youtube video of Akram bowling to Croft!
