29 fivefers for Jimmy in test cricket, takes him level with McGrath. Sir Richard Hadlee is the only bowler to have taken more five wicket hauls (36) in tests, while four spinners have also taken 30+ fivefers.

I’ve previously been of the “yeah but he’s played so many tests” but he’s still whizzing it down north of 85mph at 38, fair play

I wonder if a batsman has ever been a series top scorer after only batting in a third of the possible innings?

Was looking at some of the Man of the Match awards.

A fish (football and cricket), 12 pack of beer (football), pizza (football), rice cooker (Morgan), snack hamper full of peanuts and crisps, mountain bike (football), cow (Federer), AK47 (Russian ice hockey), electric shavers, pair of slippers (football), live chicken (football), blender (Luke Wright), lawnmower (Ntini), grill (football), cars (cricket), shoelaces and bat grip (Jhye Richardson), tv (Tendulkar), jewellery box (Donald), mini truck (Bumrah), single return flight ticket (SA football), bread and buns (football), Hoggard, Yuvraj - motorbike

Must be the worst MOM of all - Scotland’s Hamish Watson receiving a can of alcohol free Tennants for his MOTM performance against Georgia. (came in a see through plastic box).

I'm sure I remember Matthew Hoggard getting a motorbike as MotM in Nagpur in 2006 when he took a 7fer on a flat deck.

10 bowlers in first-class cricket around the world for the 2010s (northern summers 2010 to southern summers 2019-20).

So, who bowled the most no balls?
Charles Davis

Identifying the bowler who bowled the most no balls in Tests is not quite straightforward. Information from the major websites is very patchy. There is also the issue of how to count no balls; the protocol has varied over the years.

Nowadays, the number of no balls counted against the bowler is the same as the number of actual no ball calls by the umpires. This was not the case before 1998; before then no balls with runs off the bat were not counted as such, while multiple no balls (with added byes/leg byes) counted as more than one. For comparison of bowlers, I much prefer the modern counting, and this is possible with ball-by-ball records.

As it happens, no balls have become less common for various reasons (mainly umpires who don’t bother to check for them anymore). The greatest numbers come from previous generations of bowlers, after the front-foot rule was introduced around 1964. There are two contenders who are well ahead of anyone else – Bob Willis and Wasim Akram.

I have Willis’ career (17,357 balls) complete in ball-by-ball form. In this database, Willis was called for 932 no balls. In ‘classic’ counting it would be only 763 (no balls with runs off the bat excluded). The 932 is an extraordinary number and sets the bar quite high.

The case of Wasim Akram is more complicated. He bowled 22,627 balls, but I have only about 81% of his career ball-by-ball. There were 768 no balls calls in that data. I also have another 10% of his career with published no ball counts, but no ball-by-ball data. This adds 72 no balls, but these would be classically counted: the figure translates to 81 no ball calls, based on his typical pattern.

There is an additional 9% or so of Wasim’s career with no available data, so some estimating is required. Based on the patterns for the other 91%, the estimate comes to 936 no ball calls for his whole Test career. I am not sure how wide the put error bars should be, but Willis’s 932 would certainly be within the margin of error.

So for now, I cannot distinguish between the two bowlers. Wasim may ease clear if you include his wides – more than 40 to Willis’s 19.

The next bowler on the list appears to be Malcolm Marshall. Once again there is no exact number and some estimating is required; this produces an overall figure of 810 no ball calls.
