Imagine being so unpopular you have to beg and chase like that when you could, if you were good enough, just sit at home and have them come to you.

Imagine that, Anon. If you can.

And yet, checking their records, Southee and Anderson have both bowled 58% of their overs at home.

Southee > Anderson.

Anderson > Southee

He has played more than twice as many tests as Southee but has only played Bangladesh and Zimbabwee 4 times Southee has played the figure padders 8 times. That is 10.5% of Southees career. As opposed to 2.5% of Jimmys career

This anon bloke is not having a very good run on this thread is he. He’s tried hitting it out of the park a couple of times and been cleaned bowled twice. And surely nobody really thinks Anderson is the best quick ever, come on man.

Exactly.

Delving deeper Anderson’s bowling average at home is 3 runs better than his career average vs. Southee’s average being only 1.9 runs better at home - clearly a man for all conditions. Taking Sri Lanka as a randomly selected example, Anderson averages 46.08 per wicket compared to Southee’s 15.47.

Anderson has played 85 matches against The big three. Southee only 25.

Is that why the top Aussies and Indian batters have such good averages? Get to play against Anderson so often.

I can certainly see why your next test series is at home against Bangladesh.

Anderson’s greatest attribute is his longevity. You can’t deny that he has made the most of what he has :thumbup:. He is an honest toiler.

It's lack of sleep I reckon. Check out his posting history and you'll see he's pulled another 2 hour shift

Wisden’s test XI of 2020: Dom Sibley (England), Shan Masood (Pakistan), Kane Williamson (New Zealand), Babar Azam (Pakistan), Marnus Labuschagne (Australia), Ben Stokes (England via NZ), Quinton de Kock (South Africa), Kyle Jamieson (New Zealand), Stuart Broad (England), Tim Southee (New Zealand), Nathan Lyon (Australia).

4 Kiwis - very good indeed

I thought the same initially but he has fewer wickets and at a higher average in 2020 than Broad, Southee and Jamieson.

Apart from that, the Indian government has just banned the import of Wisden's 2020 yearbook and labeled it "dangerous racist propaganda"

Day 5 of the test, Pakistan need to dig in Kiwis need wickets in the first session, chance of rain.

Tea time and Pakistan have only lost 1 wicket today. Really dug in. Yes it's a kiwi road but when you have so many top order players getting out for very low scores with pathetic shots it becomes a very difficult game.

I think Kane needs to have a bowl himself.

My bro was trying to convince me that the people "in the know" knew that Santner was a much better spinner than his mediocre record suggests and has been bowling within himself under orders from the coaches.


I told him that sounded like a crock of shit and it turns out I was right

You know if Pak score at 3 an over for the next 20 overs that's 60 runs which would need 85 to win off the final 12 overs. If they still have 6 wickets in hand.....

Another BC win, with the despised spinner taking the final wicket with approx 4 overs remaining. :thumbup:

I think that one was dropped a few times before it was actually put in.
