England escaped from the remnants of their ascensions to Vest-India in Barbados and Antigua to achieve a victory to save the face in St. Lucia, which, if not entirely hollow, was certainly not overloaded.
They were greatly helped by the delayed realization among their batmen that when the ball with your name lies against you from the bomb, there is no absolute obligation to try to rub your name out of this ball with the edge of your hopelessly sticking bat. ,
Mark Wood's pyrotechnic heel provided the only true, verifiable positive result of the England series – he took as many wickets as possible in eight intakes, as was the four previous tests he played since 2016 – and at least avoids scarring. 0 smear.
However, this series was a big break for England against a team from West India who played the best of its millennium cricket.
The Rise of the Bomb
The battles of the English batsmen in the respective phase of the series added even more to the tendency to dominate the balls in the cricket test.
In the series, the boys of both teams had a combined average of 26.1.
Since the beginning of 2018, nine test series of three or more meetings have been held, and collectors on average have an average of less than 30 in all. Prior to this millennium, the shooters were on average under 30 in just 23% of those series.
The collective series of two collective first inning of 19.9 is the eighth worst in test history (500 series of three or more matches).
England contributed with impressive consistency to these statistics – their average value for the first indians of 16.4 was their second worst in 225 series of at least three tests, and the highest rate of Western Indian attacks of 38.6 was the best a figure from each team. against England (factionally in front of the dreadful West Indian attack of 1985-86).
Overall, in a cricket test from the beginning of 2018, the collective average for booters is 19% lower than 2001-2017 (27.6, less than 34.0). % (31.1, from 35.5).
The improvement was particularly marked in the first 20 inning streams, when the pace boosters were 29 percent more effective in terms of average values (24.7, less than 34.9), highlighting how the highest levels since the beginning of last year You're trying to watch the news without throwing a brick on your TV – it's not impossible, but harder than before.
How does this ranking affect?
The world's bowling charts provide further proof of the difficulties faced today by test baits (exactly how these rankings are calculated is one of the most strictly kept secrets in the familiar universe, it is said to include a shadowy sub-committee of the Bilderberg group of 100 fighters, fugitive scholars, and an infinite number of walruses based in a fake volcano somewhere near Antarctica, but provide a reliable indicator of shape and contextualized performance.
There is currently 17 booters with a rating above 700, compared to just seven on that date in 2009.
This depth of bowling has fueled the modern tendency to collapse and collapse, and often.
As a general rule, the enticements now seem more dominant and destructive when conditions and situations are in their favor, and more fragile when misery reflects one of the many and embarrassing heads.
England collapses more than any other time in history
England has contributed to the evolution of collapsing arts – since 2000, England has lost all 10 doors under 100, 40 times in 246 tests, and has done 35 times in 406 tests from the sixties to the nineties.
The appearance of Twenty20 cricket and the widespread awareness of what is possible with a bat attack may have eroded the mental and technical skills needed to prolong the defense of test matches.
The success of the Australian team with a quick jump at the top of the millennium – helped by the presence of a frankly unjust number of the largest cricketers – has influenced the overall approach to testing watts worldwide.
Recently, the influx of high-quality fast boilers, along with some spicy terrains and overactive balls, has made the watt more challenging than at any point for at least 20 years.
Perhaps a trophy of consolation for England is that their striking, seemingly implacable struggles are shared by most teams in most places in the test world.
