Mark Wood has played 34 One Day Internationals for England and he has scalped 34 wickets in his young ODI career. Thus, it means that the Durham fast bowler has taken one wicket on an average in his every match. Consequently, Wood asked for more help from England bowling coach Chris Silverwood. Wood has a short run-up to the crease. However, he can generate good speed.

Mark Wood has a strike rate of 51.2. Thus, he is picking one wicket after every 8.3 overs which is not something, Wood is proud of. Subsequently, Wood wants to improve his record as he knows that he can do better than what he is doing.

Mark Wood has added a few yards to his run-up.

Therefore, Wood is working hard with England bowling coach Chris Silverwood.

“I said to him that although I’d played a few games for England I hadn’t taken loads of wickets. I’d taken one in a game, two in a game but I hadn’t had that five-wicket haul,” said Wood as per the quotes of Daily Mail.

Wood is part of the England One-Day side for the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. In fact, the fast bowler is not going to get favourable conditions in Sri Lanka. The first One-Dayer will take place at Dambulla on 10th October.
