27 of the 45 group matches (i.e. 60%) were over on June 21. An review of the teams and individual peformances.
First, the points table:
And the ICC rankings on June 21 (for what they are worth):
Note that England is ahead of India by less than one point.
Similarly, South Africa is ahead of Australia by less than one point.
Sri Lanka is punching above its weight, and is thus comparable to Bangladesh.
We now take a quick look at the best individual performances:
Most runs (175 and above):
Warner, Shakib, Root and Sharma have 2 centuries apiece.
Root has the most (5) scores of 50+
Shakub and Root have almost the same total runs.
Highest innings (90 and above):
Warner leads here as well. A potential Man of the Series? As long as his team reaches at least the semis (as in the case of Martin Crowe in 1992 and Klusener in 1999).
Nottingham seems to be better for batting.
Most wickets (6 and above):
Close competition at the top.
Best innings bowling (including all instances of 4wi or more):
Cardiff seems to be better for bowlers.
Most dismissals (6 and above):
AT Carey was relatively little known a few months ago. And Shai Hope was not a first-choice keeper for his team either.
Root and Bairstow have the most catches by non-keepers.
All-round performances (30 runs and 3 wickets):
Only one such performance, and from one who is not considered among the better all-rounders in this tournament (Think of Shakib and Stokes).
