  • Jimmy Anderson hopes for wickets record

    Posted on March 21, 2013 by Selby

    .

    Jimmy Anderson is looking at the New Zealand v England Test at Eden Park as a further step towards becoming England’s leading wicket taker.

    Anderson needs only 3 wickets to surpass Derek Underwood’s tally of 297 wickets before concentrating on the top 3 bowlers. As he moves in the direction of Ian Botham’s record of 383 wickets taken over a total of 102 matches he is not helped by the New Zealand surfaces which have so far been flat and relatively unresponsive.

    Cricket memorabilia from the New Zealand v England Test and ODI series is very popular especially signed cricket bats and match used cricket balls, so far this winter in the Southern Hemisphere has been excellent for both.

    Having averaged an enviable 30 wickets per year so far it is really about all about how long he can continue playing at Test level. Best of luck to him.

    It is interesting to note the following stats:

    Ian Botham                   383 wickets per 102 matches played (28.4)

    Bob Willis                      325 wickets per 90   matches played (25.2)

    Freddie Trueman         307 wickets per 67 matches played (21.5)

    Derek Underwood      297 wickets per 86 matches played (25.8

    Jimmy Anderson         295 wickets per 79 matches played (30.4)

    As is evident from the bowling averages my number one bowler Freddie Trueman comes in first as expected with an average of 21.5 and note that he only played 67 matches to achieve 307 wickets.

    Without Kevin Peterson tomorrow England have it all to do, anyway let’s hope the rain keeps off and that the wicket for the deciding Test of the series at Eden Park, offers more to the bowlers.

  • India v Australia at Hyderabad

    Posted on March 6, 2013 by Selby

    India v Australia at Hyderabad

    Autograph signings are taking place in Hyderabad, which will be pretty hectic as you can imagine, with the India crowd on a high following a convincing 2nd victory against the Australians.

    Cricket Collectables,  autographs, signed cricket bats, scorecards and tour memorabilia will all be in demand over the coming weeks, the momentum began with the India win at Mohali.

    India on 503 runs have beaten the Aussies (237/9 declared) by Innings and 135 runs

    Incredibly the Australia declaration in the 1st Innings made history when they lost by the same margin

    Having won the toss and decided to bat Australia 1st innings saw Clarke and Wade make the only significant scores of 91 and 62 respectively.

    India in reply put up a convincing 370 run partnership with Vijay scoring 167 and Pujara 204, to put the match beyond the tourists reach

    Ravichandran Ashwin took 5 wickets for 63 runs ensuring an easy win at this critical stage, allowing India to take a 2 -0 lead in the 4 match series

    The3rd Test at Mohali starts on Thursday March 14th and it looks as though Australia will need analyse Hyderabad and work on their strategy

    Cricket Memorabilia will also be available from the 2nd and 3rd Test played in New Zealand on Thursday March 14th at Basin Reserve Wellington and on Friday March 22nd at Eden Park Auckland.
