Only one such instance. Let us modify the criteria to

At least 6 innings batted and bowled, 100 runs and 5 wickets:

AR-overall (Rev)

This gives a better idea of all-round performances throughout the tournament-though van Niekerk misses out here. EA Perry (Aus) leads here.

NR Sciver (Eng) is the only one with two centuries. But EA Perry (Aus) made 5 scores of 50+, though her top score was only 71. M Raj (Ind) and L Wolvaardt (SA) made 4 scores of 50+, while the latter also failed to score a century.

It is ironic that the highest score was made by a batter from a team which finished second from the bottom.

The first name may be a surprise, as she was among the lesser-known players from her side until the later stages of this championship.

Bowling:

Most wickets (8 and above):

D van Niekerk (SA) is the only one to take more than one 4wi, including 4 for 0 which has never been achieved in men’s or women’s ODIs before.

The top two wicket-takers are engaged to be married. Once this takes place, they will be the first married couple to play in the same national cricket team. Not sure if this has happened in other sports.

van Niekerk has the best bowling average (as well as the best economy and strike rate).

Tests between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe has still not won a Test against Sri Lanka.

This is the record of all Tests between these teams:

SL-Zim Tests

Sri Lanka has won 13 and drawn 5 Tests against Zimbabwe. This includes winning the last 8 in a row.

Zimbabwe’s Test wins have been few and far between:

Zimbabwe wins

Only 2 of the 11 wins were away from home. Their one victory in Pakistan in 1998 may be the most significant, as it remains part of their only series victory against a major team.

Here are a few records which were set during this Test:

List of centuries in Sri Lanka-Zimbabwe Tests:

SL v Zim innings

CR Ervine’s 160 is now the highest for Zimbabwe in Sri Lanka, surpassing the old record of 105* by Andy Flower in 1998. Sikandar Raza’s 127 also surpassed this record. The overall record for Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka remains 266 by Dave Houghton in 1994 in Bulawayo.

Best match bowling figures in Sri Lanka-Zimbabwe Tests:

SL v Zim innings bowling

AG Cremer’s 9-275 is the best match bowling for Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka, surpassing his own record of 7-227 at Harare in 2016. The previous best for Zimbabwe in Sri Lanka was 6-112 by Heath Streak in 1998.

No significant records were set in fielding or all-round performance.

 

 

 

The other Test all-rounders-1

We start with the scorecard of the  England-South Africa Test at Lord’s:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/england-v-south-africa-2017/engine/match/1031437.html

Moeen Ali achieved the double of a fifty and 10 wickets in the match.

Now, the standard definition of a good all-round performance in a Test is a century and a fiver. Cricinfo provides this as a direct link: http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/records/282793.html

There are 32 such instances at the time of writing.

The achievement of a fifty and 10wm is somewhat less common though the instances can be easily be got from Statsguru:

Fifty and 10 wickets in a Test (as on Jul 11, 2017)

10wm and fifty

27 entries here, the most recent entrants here being Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja and Dilruwan Perera. Sir Richard Hadlee is the only one to do this 3 times. No one else has done it more than once.

Also note that Alan Davidson was the first to score a hundred runs and take 10 wickets in a match (though without a century). This was in the Brisbane tied Test of 1960. He held this record for over 19 years. It was not until 1980 that Botham became the first to score a century and take 10 wickets in a match. Imran repeated this a few years later and Shakib followed much later.

While the list of those who scored a century and 5wi is mostly populated by the better-known all-rounders ranging from Sobers to Botham to Ashwin, the second list has a few unexpected names. These include bowlers who were not considered recognized batsmen but somehow managed a fifty: e.g. JK Lever (on debut), Abdul Qadir, DW Steyn and PS de Villiers. Then there are non-regular bowlers (notably AR Border and MG Bevan) who were not regular bowlers but somehow managed a ten-wicket haul.

In several cases these were the only fifties or ten-fors the player achieved in their Test careers. The strangest case may be that of JK Lever, who is the only one to score a fifty and take ten wickets on his debut. He did not achieve either of these again in his 21-Test career.

Review of West Indies-India T20I matches (July 2017)

Only 8 T20I matches have been played between these countries:

This performance during the 2009 World T20 Championship is one of the finest T20I match performances of all time, as we see here:

T20I best AR

Probably it would be second only to that of Watson, while the other three instances were against weak opponents.
