    Graphs of Wickets by Batting Order for Good Bowlers

    Just making, for posterity's sake, a compilation of Graphs of Wickets by Batting Order for Good Bowlers.

    Doing it by countries. So, first we have the Windies pace battery:















    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.

    It can be seen why Sylvestre Clarke and Wes Hall are highly rated based on this metric. Croft great too. Garner loses out the most.

    Sylvers has to be the single most under-rated man in the history of the game

    wanted to post that Fred's Sylvester Clarke love to pop out but have been beaten already
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I often wonder how many Tests Clarke would have played if that brick missed;

    Sylvester's high speed delivery of ball, brick, and brandy

    ...In the Caribbean in 1981 he was chosen ahead of Michael Holding to play against England but then lost his place after being banned for lobbing a brick into the crowd in Multan, Pakistan. Fielding in the outfield, he had been pelted with pebbles and oranges. The brick hit a student leader, who with blood pouring from his head was carried from the ground for emergency surgery. Had an England fast bowler thrown that brick it would probably have passed harmlessly down the leg side.

    Look and at all that blue for Larwood. Fabulous.

    Also, I would have thought that Warne would have picked up a higher percentage of top-order batsman. But I guess that's because McGrath was so good they weren't around by the time Warne got to roll his arm over.
