Ashes Top Wicket Takers – 2009 Series

Ashes Top Wicket Takers

Ben Hilfenhaus capped an excellent series in which he was the only Aussie bowler to be consistant throughout the 5 tests by being the Ashes top wicket taker with 22 English victims. Hilfenhaus always looked dangerous with his outswinger and seemed to adapt best to bowling in English conditions. After a sticky first 3 tests Stuart Broad emerged as the top English bowler after there were calls for him to be dropped at Headingley and The Oval.
