Hope that you have seen part 1 ( https://abn397.wordpress.com/2020/07/30/review-of-england-west-indies-tests-2020-i/ )
We now look at Bowling figures.
Most wickets (60 or more):
The top two were contemporaries at a time when WI were declining from their peak. Broad is the only current player.
The most 5-fors were by Ambrose (8) and Gibbs (7), while several (including Broad) had two 10-fors.
Most wickets in an innings (8wi and above):
The only one from recent years was Chase’s 8-60 in 2019.
Most wickets in a Test (11wm and above):
Broad’s 10-67 is the best in recent years.
Best bowling averages (Minimum 2000 balls, maximum 30.00):
While Garner and Ambrose lead the averages, Valentine and Ramadhin have the best economy rates and Marshall and Holding the best strike rates. An equitable distribution of work.
Now for Fielding statistics:
Most dismissals (25 or more):
Buttler is the only current player here.
The most stumpings were by Ames (11), the most catches by a keeper by DL Murray (90) and the most by a non-keeper by Lara (45) and Sobers (40).
Most dismissals in an innings (5 or more):
Most dismissals in a match (7 or more):
Best dismissal ratio (Minimum 20 innings and 0.750)
Only Root from recent times. The best by a non-keeper is 0.916 by Hammond and 0.863 by Constantine. Also see the figures for the “hybrids” Stewart and Walcott.
All-round performances (see criteria below):
Minimum 20 innings batted, 2000 balls, 3+ fifties, 3+ 4wi:
Sobers is far ahead of the others. Oddly enough Holding is in second place. Botham did not perform well against WI.
Match performances (Minimum one fifty and one 5wi):
Most of the famous names are here, with Stokes, Chase (2) and Broad in recent years.
The double of 100/5wi was reached by Sobers and Greig, while the double of 50/10 wm was reached by Boyce and Broad.
