Siddons is taking matches against Ireland into account to claim of achieving 50% mark, so you cannot take matches against Zimbabwe or Kenya out of the equation.
In Siddon's short era, on 38% occasions we managed to get past 200, during Whatmores last 2 years it was 39%, hardly any change in scenario, but the ways we are achieving those 200 marks are hugely different.
Now we are losing matches even before it is started and concentrating on getting 200+ score.
