It's sad to see our pacers regress. In the last decade our pacers took account for 50% of our Test wickets. In fact only 1 wicket seperated pacers (287) from spinners (286). Pacers averaged 55.2 whilst spinners averaged 46.89 in total. This decade our pacers have only taken 49 wickets at an unacceptable 77.5. This is in contrast to spinners who've taken 110 wickets at 45.16. Pacers have accounted for 30.8% of our wickets compared to 50% the previous decade. The only way we can improve this is by setting up a pace academy and investing in our pacers.
