Uneven Wicket Taking

Having just read about Hoggard, I agree with Ed's comments but I wish he had not done it against my adopted county.

Looking at the scorecard has reminded me of how often it seems that a bowler takes shed-loads of wickets in the first innings and none, or nearly none, in the second. I appreciate that pitches can change during the game and bowlers can get tired but the trend seems greater than I would have expected.

I am sure that our resident sage can either prove me right or wrong...
