One of the good things about having all of our results stored on the web site database is that it is relatively easy to pull out all sorts of weird and wonderful statistics. Much has been said in the past about both our relative propensity to give our team mates out LBW compared to the opposition, so I thought I’d see if was actually true or not.

Of the 587 wickets we’ve lost since 2005, 57 have been to LBW (9.71%). Of the 536 wickets we’ve taken, 51 have been to LBW (9.51%).

That indicates to me that, whatever the rights and wrongs of any individual calls (and I’m sure we can all bring several absolute shockers to mind without any effort at all), overall we give pretty much as we get. And we need to take more wickets.
