Worked out that of the last 10 championship matches we have :-

Won 8 - Taking the full 20 wickets
Drawn 1 - Taking the full 10 wickets available
Drawn 1 - Taking 19 of the 20 wickets available

That really is an extraordinary bowling performance! :thumbsup:

I don't wish bad luck on anyone but with Roland-Jones injured, Porter must be in the running for a ashes place. No English bowler is near him with wickets taken this season.[/QUOTE

For his sake I'd rather he debuted in an English home season as the ashes could be a chastening experience. He clearly deserves the chance though as he has been phenomenal this year and his record is well clear of any other English bowler.

I know people are worried about his lack of height and pace but Philander for South Africa has shown what can be achieved with cricket skills rather than physical gifts. (Actually, I wonder what his stats are like in Australia)
