So what does it say? What I can glean is that we are mildly bad although not as bad as England and West Indies when it comes to the tail at home but we are pretty good abroad while bowling. While batting, our tail is fine too overall and abroad.

Other interpretations? Findings from the data?

So the Ashes is over. Australia seemed to be the slightly better team because it has two greats. Smith and Cummins. And, this is England's home ground.

Smith was out of the world in this series. Labu played superbly too. Wade was barely okay. Two centuries and eight nothings. I say under par. The rest did not turn up with the bat. Marsh was excellent with the ball. Cummins was superb throughout. Hazlewood was very good too. Beyond that Starc, Lyon, and Pattinson were okay. Siddle was crap. They should have played Hazlewood in T1 and Starc or Pattinson instead of Siddle.

For England, Stokes was great, Burns was decent to good. Denly and Root were Wade-ish barely okay. The others did not turn up again. Archer was superb. Curran was good in his only test. Leach and Broad were pretty good too. Woakes was just about passable and Stokes, Ali, and Overton totally crappy with the ball.

The find was possibly Archer. West Indies' loss, England's gain.
