9 Dec / 2021(683)…The Ashes- Spin has less effect, but new ball has been influential!.

A brief analysis on which type of bowlers had more success in last three Ashes (2015 onwards )both home and away. Interestingly spinners had very less effect on any both teams!.




However the new ball had more effect against batsmen from both teams.


I have given  20-overs range for new ball, irrespective when it is taken.  In Australia kookaburra ball is used, dukes is used in England.

This analysis includes first, second and also third new ball taken by bowling teams.

Interestingly for England Mark Wood has only picked one wicket against Australia with a new ball!.



Here is list of bowlers who picked wickets with new ball. The list includes those are involved in the ongoing Ashes.
