मालिकेदरम्यान मला आश्चर्यचकित करणारी एक गोष्ट म्हणजे पंडितांनी संबंधित विकेट कीपरची तुलना कशी केली - ब्रॅड हॅडिनला चांगली प्रेस मिळाली, जेव्हा मॅट प्रायरला थोडेसे नकारात्मक एकूण रेटिंग मिळाली. मी पाहिलेल्या गोष्टींमधून मला वाटले नाही की त्यांच्यात बरेच काही आहे, म्हणून मी विचार केला की हे कसे दिसते ते मी पाहू शकेन. मला वाटले की मी उर्वरित बाजूंसाठी देखील असेच करावे आणि मालिकेतून एखादी टीम उदयास आली की ती व्यक्ती किती चांगल्या प्रकारे खेळली हे प्रतिबिंबित करते.
त्यामुळे, त्या करार करू देते 2 men behind the wicket first

Overall Haddin has the fractionally better batting average, and undeniably took a lot more catches behind the wicket. However, आपण फक्त आपल्या मार्ग येतो काय पकडू शकता, so a more telling number would be the number of missed opportunities. Missed opportunities are hard to quantify of course. The batting numbers aren’t different enough to justify picking 1 player over the other, and had Prior played 1 किंवा 2 अधिक डाव, एक आणि केले 50, the averages would be near enough equal.
Regardless of the views of the pundits, on balance I’d pick Prior. Firstly I have a sense that Haddin made more mistakes behind the wicket with a few missed chances. Secondly, I have a greater faith that Prior would be the man in a pressure situation — despite a good effort Haddin failed to see Australia through to victory in the first test.
I’ve only included players who bowled at least 50 overs

The numbers match up fairly well with who I’d pick for my team. Anyone who watched any of the series would be able to pick Graeme Swann, Ryan Harris & James Anderson without a hesitation, leaving the only question who the 4व्या bowler would be. As the 3व्या highest wicket taker, फलंदाजीतही तेही सुलभ जात, Stuart Broad is the easy choice. He was also more economical than either Siddle or Starc. The final confirmation of these 4 ते आहे 4 या 5 who had an average under 30 — Tim Bresnan being the only other bowler to achieve this.
प्रत्येक बाजूला आहे 1 very good bowler who is unlucky to miss out — Tim Bresnan for England and Peter Siddle for Australia. Both players are hard working, फलंदाजी सभ्य, and contribute well in the field. Bresnan took his wickets slightly cheaper, whilst Siddle was a bit more economical per over bowled and both picked up key wickets at key times. The choice between them would probably come down to the flip of a coin if a 5व्या bowler was going to be picked.
The balance of the bowlers for varying conditions also works out very well. Swann is the best spinner in the world at the moment and Anderson is one of the top 2 bowlers outright with wonderful control and an ability to find swing in any conditions. Broad has the ability to both move the ball and bowl genuinely fast to pressure any batsman who struggles with short pitched deliveries. Harris is consistently accurate and has a skiddy speed which will unsettle even quality batsmen on good surfaces. Neither side has a really top class genuinely fast bowler which is the only chink in the quality of the attack.
I’ve only included genuine batsmen, and have excluded a couple of the Aussie batsmen who only played in the first or second test (and didn’t do well)

Picking a batting line up is far less straight-forward then a bowling attack. Ian Bell is the only batsman who can be picked without having to think. Michael Clarke also has a good average but is helped by 2 नाही-आऊट (as a result of declarations). That said, Clarke is a world-class batsman and it would be pretty hard to justify leaving him out of the side.
The remaining 4 are trickier to select. Shane Watson is useful with the ball and made the 3व्या highest average, but he has a tendency to make runs when they don’t matter, and get out when a score is needed. I also haven’t yet picked any openers, and Watson didn’t play well as an opener (and isn’t consistent enough) आणि खरं तो फक्त घेतला 2 wickets means he’s not going to make the team. Chris Rogers surprised me and had a much better series than I expected him to. He improved as the series went on and he was a very calm and consistent player — ideal as an opener. As a result he makes the team.
Pieterson एक किंचित खाली भाषेचा मालिका होती, however he had to find form early on having just returned from an injury he was clearly still carrying throughout the last test. His ability to make game changing runs, आणि धावा सर्वात आवश्यकता असते तेव्हा धावा (and his sheer entertainment value) definitely gets him a place.
I still need another opener and the remaining choice is between the “bar fight 2”. The numbers make this easy, and Root’s reasonable average is particularly impressive given the pressure he was under making his opening debut in such a key series. He is also a much more careful player than Warner which is better suited to test cricket, and he showed he is a quick learner by improving his technique as the series went on.
This leaves just a final batsman to pick. The numbers say Steve Smith but I wasn’t at all convinced that he was a test batsman. Without his 1 high score and his “not out” innings enhancing it, his average would be under 21 which is a more accurate reflection of the series he had. Khawaja had a very poor series and is out of the picture so that leaves the choice of Trott, Bairstow and Cook. Despite his disappointing series with the bat it’s easy to pick the Ashes winning captain as the captain for the whole team, especially if he were a touch down the order to relieve the pressure that opening and being captain brings.
The numbers and my line up aren’t quite a match, पण मी उचलले 5 वरच्या 7 by numbers and added in Alastair Cook, who despite his disappointing series would be hard to leave out. The 2 who miss out — Shane Watson and Steve Smith have both managed to produce numbers that very much flatter the reality of how well they played. This is doubly so when you consider that the 2 players I have picked instead (कूक & मूळ) both had to face tougher conditions as opening batsmen.

This is a very strong but somewhat unbalanced side, फक्त 3 Australians compared to 8 Englishmen. However, England have just won 3–0 and were good money for that scoreline. No-one would have blinked if a similar “best of” team from the 90’s was largely Australian, त्यामुळे सपाट दगडी पाट्या चालू आहेत की आता ते आनंद द्या.
