Some dodgy maths there.

Who dropped the 4th test catches and how many did they make in the 5th?

I had taken it from the first dropped catch when Nair was on 34.

I was reading no fielding coach and Bayliss has taken over that job.

Chris Taylor is the fielding coach isn't he? Sure I've seen him sat with the other coaches.

Meanwhile, since he took over and dispensed with fielding coaches to take on the responsibility himself, England have dropped a series of vital chances. And with an attack that creates so few, that is costing them dearly. His recent comment that the team "haven't got a lot of natural athletes" sounds dangerously like a workman blaming his tools.

The ECB never seem to mention changes in backroom staff. I see new faces every now and then and wonder what they do. Latest sighting is a young Indian in ECB kit.

I can't find anything on the ECB which says Taylor has gone. Usually they put up a message thanking them for their service.

We dropped a lot before he took over as well.

It's a statement of the obvious.

Cook, Hameed, Ali, Rashid aren't athletic. Broad and Anderson are fairly athletic (when not broken) but are fast bowlers and you don't want them doing all the running. Bairstow's fairly athletic but stuck behind the stumps.

Other than Stokes and, if he's retained which most seem to doubt, Buttler - who would you consider a natural fielder? If Root's England's second best fielder that's a worry. I think Bayliss will look to fill out the side with more athletic players (so the likes of Roy, Buttler but hopefully not Jordan come into the selectoral conversation). This is where James Taylor's shock retirement really hurts England.

I don't know about athlete but Hameed looks pretty good under the lid, Ali doesn't seem the most athletic but looks very reliable in the field and woakes looks both athletic and reliable. Bairstow is very athletic and one of the best fielders in England when not using the gloves.

Ironically enough our LOI squads are full of top class fielders and yesterday we probably had England best ever fielding team on the pitch (I'm sure it would have been if Ball had got injured and replaced by Jordan instead of Willley) but even the starting XI normally includes 4 average or poor fielders with the bench having the likes of Bairstow,Billings,Dawson and Jordan on it.

I asked Dobell on Twitter and he said Taylor is still with the limited overs team but Bayliss has taken on the Tests.

Hopefully he's found plenty of time to have some 1-2-1's with Rashid over the last week!

Wonder if cricket will get like American football and they send a bunch of specialist fielders when the other side is batting.

No, even if sides like England push it with their subs.

India dropped 22 catches in their six Tests against England and Bangladesh.

much the same as our 18 drops from 5 Tests in India - 3.6 a Test

From the ECB site I got these figures (all the Test and ODI players in May 2017)

40m sprint
1 Willey 5.00
2 Billings 5.07
3 Hameed 5.08

Run 2
1 Willey 5.73
2 Bairstow 5.83
3 Billings 5.85

Standing jump
1 Willey 59.6 cm
2 Bairstow 53.1 cm
3 Billings 50.7 cm

Yo Yo test
1 Cook 3120m
2 Bairstow 3000m
3 Root 2760m

In one day in the field last year Finn and Woakes ran 33 and 34 miles. Bairstow says he runs 14/15 miles a day in the field. You wouldn't think so because he's a keeper. 17,000 squats in Tests last year.
