79 The control percentage for Indian batsmen against O'Keefe, which means 21% of the time he drew false strokes from the Indian batsmen. Despite taking 12 wickets in the game, O'Keefe wasn't the bowler who forced the highest percentage of false shots from batsmen; against Nathan Lyon, the control percentage for India's batsmen was only 70, which suggests he was unlucky to not take more than five wickets in the match. In fact, India's two spinners main drew more false shots than O'Keefe: Australia's control percentage was only 76 against R Ashwin and 73 against Ravindra Jadeja. However, O'Keefe's fuller length, and the fact that he got less turn, ensured that he got the edges and the wickets, while the other spinners beat the bat more often.
