Cricket’s debatable statistics: The home town geniuses

  Cricket’s debatable statistics: The home town geniuses In my previous article I examined the overall trends for home versus away performances for cricketing nations across history. This time I will delve a little deeper to try and solve the David Warner mystery. Remember from my last article that the historical difference between home and away performances for top seven position batsmen is 10.6 per cent. Since 2000 this difference has grown to 15.1 per cent. So how bad is David Warner away from home? Well he isn’t great. Warner has an extremely impressive home average of 63.2.

Rory Burns top-scored as England battled out an evenly-poised first day of the second Test against New Zealand, but was more impressed by a sparky knock from Dan Lawrence late in the day.

Burns put in a solid shift for his side at Edgbaston, batting out more than two full sessions and facing 187 balls for his 81 – a crucial component in the hosts’ 258 for seven.

But when he and James Bracey edged successive Trent Boult deliveries, things were looking dicey on 175 for five.

Enter Lawrence, who came through a streaky start to put together an increasingly authoritative 67 not out that helped rebalance the scales before stumps.

  Tim Southee and Rory Burns take headlines while Ollie Robinson impresses again Robinson has impacted his debut Test with bat and ball but there was no such good news for James Bracey or Dan Lawrence.Burns, who was dropped midway through the tour of India last winter following five single-figure scores in eight international innings, made a tenacious 132 out of England’s 275 all out.

Rory Burns batted all day to make a fine maiden Test century and put England on top in a fascinating first Test at Edgbaston . England trail by 17 runs with six first- innings wickets remaining. That was an old-fashioned opener’ s Test hundred from Burns , who showed a lot of mental clarity, never mind strength. Australia’ s bowlers didn’t do much wrong, but there was little assistance apart from a short period after the old ball was changed.

Trent Boult took two wickets in two balls on his return to New Zealand duty before England fought back to be 258-7 at stumps on the first day of the second and final Test at Edgbaston on Thursday. The hosts were 85-3 and 175-6 but opener Rory Burns ' 81 and Dan Lawrence ' s 67 not out ensured the Blackcaps did not dominate entirely. England's last two wickets had so far added 83 runs, with Olly Stone (20) and tailender Mark Wood, 16 not out off 58 balls at the close, delighting a crowd of some 17,000 following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. Left-arm quick Boult, who had missed last week's

In all he hit 11 boundaries, including a couple of sweetly-struck fours through the off side and a trademark flick of the wrists that fuelled the festivities of the 18,000 in attendance. That was the largest home crowd for an England match since the pandemic started and Burns shared their audible approval of Lawrence’s efforts.

“It was good to watch wasn’t it? Loz played beautifully,” he said.

“It was slightly two-paced and lent itself to a good old-fashioned day of Test cricket really. He enjoys his flair and some of his shot-making was brilliant today. I was watching inside with Sibs (Dominic Sibley) and he hit a punchy cover drive…it was a dot in the end but I was like ‘what a shot that is’.

“How he played there and how he managed to be so fluent on that kind of surface was really impressive. We’ve got three wickets left to add as many runs as possible and hopefully Dan can keep going.”

Test cricket’s progressive bowling average records

  Test cricket’s progressive bowling average records Most cricket followers around the world will instantly know what I’m talking about when I write 99. 94. Significantly fewer will recognise 10.75. These two numbers signify the highest Test batting and bowling averages using a cut-off of 20 innings for batsmen and 100 wickets for bowlers. The batsman is of course Sir Donald Bradman. The bower is the less celebrated 19th century Englishman, George Lohmann. However if there were no innings or wickets cut-off points, neither Bradman nor Lohmann actually possess the best averages. Last time I looked at the progressive batting averages.

Dan Lawrence had the best day of all the England batsmen but it was his captain, Tom Westley, who led the fight for Essex on a tough day of grind for the batsmen in Chelmsford. Lawrence made 43 off 86 balls and thanks to his runs in the final Test against India can probably feel a little more secure about his place than Zak Crawley, Dom Sibley, Ollie Pope and Rory Burns .

While Burns was less explosive, he has tapped into a rich vein of form for both Surrey and England this summer and was beginning to entertain ideas of back-to-back centuries after a productive outing at Lord’s last week.

“It would have been nice wouldn’t it, but I fell slightly short today,” he said.

“To back up the runs at Lord’s with another good score is something I’m pretty happy with, but I’m disappointed not to get it home and hear my name sung a little bit louder.”

Warming to the theme of the stadium’s raucous atmosphere, which was a stark difference after a year of bio-secure bubbles and social distancing, Burns added: “It was brilliant. The Hollies Stand is impressive, as good as it gets definitely in this country and possibly in world cricket. The atmosphere was brilliant.”

Black Caps seamer Matt Henry, who dismissed Dom Sibley and captain Joe Root, was equally happy to hear some noise in the ground.

Dom Sibley and Rory Burns give England solid start to second Test

  Dom Sibley and Rory Burns give England solid start to second Test The two openers put on 67 in the morning session against New Zealand at at EdgbastonAs a nominated government pilot event there were 17,000 fans in attendance as the stadium operated at 70 per cent capacity. Having been denied an early chance to see James Anderson in action on the day he overtook Sir Alastair Cook as England’s most capped Test cricketer, they settled in to watch a disciplined opening stand and offered the kind of loud support that has been much-missed throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Rory Burns hit his maiden Test hundred to put England in a strong position on the second day of the first Ashes Test against Australia at Edgbaston . But Burns battled on to reach three figures for the first time in a Test match. He and Ben Stokes (38 not out) rallied in the closing hour with a series of boundaries. Particularly with James Anderson unlikely to bowl in Australia' s second innings due to concern over a calf injury, England will look to bat on deep into the third day to try and build a big first innings lead.

PAUL NEWMAN AT EDGBASTON : Just a week ago Rory Burns looked more like a jumble of moving parts rather than an opener with technique and temperament to make an Ashes century. Rory Burns hits maiden Test ton on day two of first Ashes Test to bring England within just 17 runs of Australia' s first innings total with six wickets intact. Rory Burns replied to Steve Smith' s century on day one with one of his own on Friday, reaching stumps on 125. England did a good job of whittling down Australia' s first innings lead, with Joe Root reaching 57 at No 3.

“Special mention to the crowd, they were fantastic. The Hollies Stand was just electric all day,” he said.

“They were phenomenal, you can see the excitement of everyone getting back into cricket and into stadiums. It was some impressive energy.”
