CricViz analyst Freddie Wilde examines how India’s selection cost them in Perth.
Freddie Wilde’s analytical notes from day four at the Perth Stadium. STALEMATE The morning session was an attritional, but strangely compelling, two hours of cricket. Across 30 overs Australia added just 58 runs at a run rate of 1.93 runs per over and with just two boundaries. Neither Australia or—more curiously perhaps—India, showed much intent […]
Freddie Wilde’s analytical report from day three at the Perth Stadium. NATURAL VARIATION DOES FOR RAHANE Day three got off to the perfect start for Australia who removed Ajinkya Rahane with the fourth ball of the day.

Freddie Wilde’s analytical notes from day three at the Adelaide Oval. INDIA’S PLANNING EXPOSED India managed to seal a small first innings lead of 15 but it could have been more were it not for Nathan Lyon’s cameo of 24 off 28 balls. Lyon’s brief innings suggested a lack of planning from India who bowled […]
