If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

I appreciate the effort by harsh.
I wouldn't be getting my little fella rising so much at the sight of all that blue without thinking about the opposition lineups, bowlers role in team and teammates.

I sometimes think that Clive Lloyd had some sort of non-cricketing grudge against Sylvester Clarke and even more so Wayne Daniel who was as good a bowler as any. His ludicrous preference for Colin Croft who was an inferior bowler and also assaulted umpires (not saying the idiot Goddall didn't deserve it, but that's not the point) can only have been personal.
Yeah it's a good effort. What do you think the graph teaches us?
I think getting out the middle order is pretty much as useful as getting out the top order and there are situations where the lower order stats could be misleading. England for instance play a night watchman quite regularly which makes Prior as valuable a wicket as Chris Martin and then James Anderson or Steve Finn as important as Don Bradman to exaggerate my point.
There are also situations where teams declare/reach victory targets not many down which boosts the top order stats.
Like most comparisons the best ones are of the players who played most regularly together so Warne&McGrath, Donald&Pollock, The Windies quicks from the 80s were the graphs I liked the most.

I thought about making comparisons across eras, but then thought country-wise would be more useful in the long run. Plus, there would be a pile in the 70s-80s post, but too few in the othere

Great job Harsh.
Top and middle just important, don't want to high a percentage of the lower order though.

reckon it would be interesting (and i guess impossible) to show the strike rate for bowlers against the three categories
