During the Harper era, West Indies bowling average was 33.00.  From 2003 to 2010, the era in which I believe the West Indies still used the kookaburra (please correct me if I am wrong on this), their bowling average was 43.00. From 2011 until now, they averaged 34.42.

From 1980-1989, bowling average : 25.96
From 1990-1999, bowling average: 29.37

I was unable to find strike rates in order to compare them but will keep digging and see if I can come up with anything more.


Sweet work Dilly !!  :)

Despite trawling through the usual websites that provide customised stats, I was unable to find any that offer the ability to find team strike rates for select periods of times. However, I was able to sort by individual bowling strike rates over these periods. It's not quite what I was hoping for, but better than nothing.

The first graphic shows the strike rates for bowlers using the kookaburra between 2003-2010:



The second graphic shows the strike rates for bowlers using the duke ball from 2011 to date:



Minimum criteria is 5 wickets taken. Overall, bowlers with the duke ball have had more success. With the kookaburra, 10 bowlers had a strike rate under 80 in 7 years, whereas 14 bowlers have a strike rate under 80 in just under 4 years with the duke ball.

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

Today they are the biggest manufacturer of cricket balls in the world
In Test matches, their hegemony prevails everywhere but India, where the SG ball is used
England and the West Indies, where the Dukes ball is.

West Indies coaching regime, headed by Stuart Law and Nic Pothas, were keen to use a Kookaburra
in this series on the basis that England have a history of struggling to gain much movement with it.
They were also keen to play on slower, lower surfaces, such as in Guyana
in the hope of negating England's seamers and exploiting a perceived weakness in their batting.
