    Bumping this.

    Ended the series with 15 wickets at 39.8. Thoughts?

    The Aussies' second innings scores were higher than their first innings scores in every Test, with the sole exception of the Gabba, where their second innings was left uncompleted at 107-1.

    Is this the first time ever that an Australian top 4 has gone through a 5 match series without a century?

    Hard to say. I'm sure he would have liked some more wickets but with the seamers on fire, he had a different role which he performed quite well.

    Economical partnership bowling, took a five-for on the only helpful deck. Done his job. I bet his economy would be stunning without Hussey.

    Probably one very good game, two good and two ordinary. A decent tour by anyone's standards.

    Of the 33 England bowlers with 30+ wickets over the last 25 years, the two with the best averages are Tremlett and Finn.

    Slightly disappointing overall figures, but he can be largely satisfied with his work. Took 5 and bowled us to victory on the one deck which gave him assistance, and while I'd have liked him to take more wickets, you can't really argue with his economy. He was never going to be a crucial bowler if we were to win the series, he's supported the quicks superbly in the 3 Tests we did win.

    Figures don't tell the full story IMO. As I said when you asked the question originally, for him to have had a successful tour all that was needed was England to have won the series.

    For the record I expected him to get around 18 wickets and probably make 2 match-winning or turning spells.

    He only got the one in the end but doubt he'll be complaining about it.

    During Australia's dominant home period of 1993-2008, touring teams only scored an overall batting average of 26.92, with India the only team to get above 30 runs per wicket. Australia's own home batting average during this period was 44.50.
    Final standings here:
    England 51.14
    Australia 29.23 (worst since 1998/9)
