Third Test One reason could be the lack of swing he has generated. This summer has also been Anderson's least productive at home for swing since CricViz records began in 2007, although it is not for lack of effort - his average pace this summer is his highest since 2014. Average swing 2007 Average speed (mph) For all his struggles, Anderson is also suffering from a lack of luck. No England bowler induced more played and misses, or false shots, than he did at Old Trafford last week. J Anderson C Woakes D Bess B Stokes J Root
