I think catching is generally getting worse across the world. Maybe it's how the ball is coming off the modern bat's edge. maybe it's the prominence of white ball games where catchers are rarely kept in position. Maybe in this series its that the scoring has been low, so there have been a lot of edges, therefore more missed chances.

Looks like this could end in a clatter.

Dowrich gets such a lot of criticism, that he'll probably score a series winning ton today

52/6. Toby gets Shane Dowrich caught.


Middle of the bat and that pull would have been 4.

Great achievement. Could be the last of England's test legends that truly mastered his craft


Congrats for reading Anderson right , Sussex. But I must point out that I wrote an article on the old BBC 606 in early 2008 suggesting he had got his act together and was on his way to stardom ; so I want "in" to the believers club :)

Actually recall I got a few dissenting comments at the time ; though I do remember Greyblazer was supportive.

Given your excellent judgement re Jimmy ; what set you against Stokes ? (I am sensing you are starting to warm to him at last , despite continuing to shake your head at his disproportionate ration of good fortune)

The main reason why his record in terms of average has improved so much recently is because he is so economical. He's become a throwback in that respect in the present era of fast strike rates and high runs per over. But if he isn't taking the wickets someone has to play that role. I thought he was over valued in UAE last time. He had a nice average because he gave so few runs away, but the SR was poor. In the context of the team, in spite of the average, he actually wasn't offering much. Maybe England just failed a bit slower.


Some truth in that . The big difference in Anderson at home (where he is deadly) and less helpful conditions overseas is that he won't take 6/35 in , say , Adelaide . But what he will do is get a vital early break (Rogers was a big factor in generally keeping him out on the last tour) and maintain tight control to the advantage of those bowling with him. in 2010/11 Tremlett and Bresnan were excellent foils (not to forget Swann !) and the combination worked Australia over nicely. On the last tour , apart from Broad , there was no one else applying any pressure.

Key for England this year will be to get the combination right.
