Continuing from Part 1
Fielding: 10 or more dismissals:
The leaders Sangakkara and Gilchrist are predictable. Note that McCullum and Dravid both alternated between keeping and fielding. The most by a “pure” fielder is by M Jayawardene.
Innings fielding (4 or more dismissals):
The overall best is by Buttler, while the unlikely record-holder for stumpings is DO Obuya of Kenya. The “other” McCullum, who never played in Tests, has the record for non-keepers.
Fielding average (0.400 and above from 15 or more innings):
Sangakkara and Boucher lead overall, while Dwayne Bravo leads among non-keepers.
All-round overall performance (see criteria in table):
Kallis is clearly the best here, while Afridi barely meets the qualification of an all-rounder.
All-round match performance (30+ runs and 3+ wickets):
The best all-round performances would be that of Tendulkar and Kallis. See the scorecards below:
But Kallis’s performance was more crucial as it came in the final in 1998:
That was before the “choking” tag came up. And it remains South Africa’s only win in an ICC tournament until now.
Tail piece: It is possible that the 2017 Champions Trophy will be the last such tournament. See the news item below which is the most recent reliable report I could find. Possibly the ICC will decide on this after this tournament is over. If held, the 2021 championship is likely to be held in India.
