Continuing with individual performances in
Most wickets (25 and above):
Hadlee and Bedi have the highest tally here, with Ashwin having the highest among current players. Southee, Boult and Ishant follow.
Best innings bowling (includes all cases of 7wi and above):
None from the current series, though Ashwin and Southee are there from earlier series.
Venkataraghavan’s only 10-for came in his debut series.
Best match bowling (includes all cases of 9wm and above):
Southee’s 9-wicket haul from this series is there. However the two best performances are by Ashwin in earlier series.
Bowling averages (Min 2000 balls, all instances):
No current player has bowled enough.
Bedi and Gupte have the best averages (though the latter played in only one series).
Nadkarni and Bedi have the best economy rates.
Hadlee and Prasanna have the best strike rates.
Most dismissals (15 and above):
Here we have Watling just ahead of Dhoni. There is also Taylor among non-keepers.
Most innings dismissals (5 and above):
Watling represents the current players. Incidentally Kirmani’s 6 dismissals was a share in the world record at that time.
Most match dismissals (6 and above):
Here we have Watling’s 7 in the current series. But no non-keeper has taken 6 or more in a match.
Best dismissal rate (Min 20 innings, 0.600):
Engineer has the top average here, mainly because he was the only keeper who played long enough. The highest averages among non-keepers here are by Fleming and Taylor.
All-round performance (overall, see criteria below):
Only Vettori appears here.
All-round match performances (50 and 5wi):
BR Taylor’s century and 5wi came on his Test debut. No other player from any country has achieved this double. Some, like Southee, have scored a 50 along with 5wi on debut.
However, Congdon and Bracewell have good figures as well.
