At least 6 innings batted and bowled, one 50 and one 4wi:

AR overall

Only one such instance. Let us modify the criteria to

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

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

All-round match performance (minimum 30 runs and 3 wickets):

Only 2 cases, including one from the team which finished last.

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).

Records for all West Indies-India ODI matches-2

Continuing from https://abn397.wordpress.com/2017/07/07/records-for-all-west-indies-india-odi-matches-1/ where we looked at the records after the ODI series which concluded on July 6, 2017.

Bowling figures: 20 or more wickets:

WI-Ind wkts

Walsh heads the list, closely followed by Kapil and Kumble. Jadeja (29) and U.Yadav (25) have the most wickets among current players.

Best innings bowling (including all 5-fors):

Bowling averages (minimum 1000 balls bowled):

WI-Ind bowling Avg

Surprisingly the non-regular bowler Viv Richards has the best average. He seems to have done particularly well as a bowler against India.

The best economy rate is 3.17 by Marshall and the best strike rate 28.4, again by Richards. Jadeja has the best average among current players.

Fielding (12 or more dismissals):

WI-Ind dismissals

Dhoni (40) is followed by Dujon (38) at the top. Dhoni has the most stumpings (12) followed by More with 10. Dujon has the most catches by a keeper (34) while Richards (26) and Hooper (25) the most catches by non-keepers.

WI-Ind innings fielding

Ramdin is the only one with 5 dismissals and 5 catches as keeper. Dravid has the most catches (4) by a non-keeper.

Best dismissal rate (minimum 20 innings and 0.400):

Records for all West Indies-India ODI matches-1

With the present series concluding on July 6, 2017, India’s 3-1 victory meant that the West Indies had not won a bilateral series against India since 2006. West Indies had won that series 4-1 at home. The last time they won a bilateral series against India in India was a generation ago in 1987-88, with a 7-1 margin. That seems to be the only 8-match bilateral ODI series ever played.

The results of all ODIs between these teams are summarized here (cancelled and abandoned matches are not counted):

Overall table

West Indies still lead 61-56 overall and 20-14 at home, besides 26-24 in India. Only on neutral grounds does India lead at 18-15.

Starting with batting records:

Most runs (750 and above):

WI-Ind runs

While Tendulkar leads, Kohli is now in second place. His century in the final match enabled him to leapfrog over the totals of some older prominent players. Yuvraj, Dhoni and none of the current WI players can also be seen here.

Kohli, Tendulkar and Gayle have scored 4 centuries each. For 50+ scores, Tendulkar leads with 15 followed by Kohli with 13 with Chanderpaul and Sarwan level on 12.

Highest innings (110 and above):

WI-Ind innings

While Sehwag has by far the highest score of 219, only Kohli with 111* is here from the current series.

Batting averages (minimum 20 innings, all instances):

WI-Ind Bat avg

Kohli and Dhoni lead this table, with Yuvraj further down. Greenidge leads for the West Indies, closely followed by Sarwan.

Strike rate (minimum 20 innings, all instances):

WI-Ind Bat SR

Sehwag leads here, closely followed by Richards. Kohli and Dhoni are close behind, while M Amarnath and Shastri are unsurprisingly at the bottom for all those who batted for at least 20 innings.

To be continued.

 

Four wickets for none

The bowling record of four wickets for no run in any international cricket match occurred recently:

http://www.espncricinfo.com/icc-womens-world-cup-2017/engine/match/1085956.html

where SA’s captain Dane van Niekerk was instrumental in dismissing the West Indies team of 48 in an ODI in the Women’s World Cup.

There have been many cheap 4-wicket hauls in women’s ODIs:

Women ODI-4

Most of the names would be quite unfamiliar to male cricket followers. The previous record of 4 wickets for 1 run was held by an Indian bowler in an ODI against South Africa in the 2005 World Cup.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/match/67380.html

And few of us would have heard of the record holder Deepa Marathe .

We now look at the corresponding records for 4-wicket hauls in men’s ODIs:

Mens ODI 4

The record was 4 for 3 by PV Simmons. It is interesting to note that the first few names (Simmons, Dilshan, Yuvraj and Sehwag) were all primarily batsmen whose bowling was secondary.

However, 4 for 0 has been recorded several times in first-class cricket. Bowlers who have achieved this include Lala Amarnath and, more recently, Axar Patel in 2015. More about this here:

https://abn397.wordpress.com/2015/08/28/axar-patels-feat-4-wickets-for-none-3/

This also gives details of the best 4-wicket analyses in Tests, headed by the unlikely AG Cremer of Zimbabwe.

This is a continuation of https://abn397.wordpress.com/2017/06/21/staistics-of-the-champions-trophy-1998-2017-pt-1/

Fielding:

Most dismissals (10 or more):

Most dismissals-10

Led by four wicketkeepers, of whom only Dhoni played in 2017. Sangakkara has the most dismissals (33), stumpings (5) and catches by keepers (28). M. Jayawardene has the most catches (15) by a non-keeper. BB McCullum and Dravid played several matches as keepers and non-keepers.

Best innings fielding (4 or more dismissals):

Innings fielding-4

Buttler is the only one with 6 dismissals, though the lesser-known DO Obuya of Kenya has the most stumpings (3). NL McCullum and GJ Maxwell have each taken 4 catches as fielders, while Sarfraz Ahmed had the best innings performance for keepers in 2017.

Dismissal rate: Minimum 15 innings, rate 0.400 and above:

Fielding avg 0.4

Sangakkara has the highest dismissal rate followed by Dhoni, while DJ Bravo has the highest for non-keepers. Shoaib Malik has the highest rate among current non-keepers

All-round performance (note the criteria):

AR overall

JH Kallis is the only consistent all-rounder, with a much better performance than the other contender Shahid Afridi.

All-round match performance (30 runs and 3 wickets in a match):

AR match

The best performances were by Tendulkar and Kallis (in a match-winning role in the 1998 final). Gayle and R McLaren probably had the next best performances.

No one achieved this in 2017. The last to do this was RS Bopara in 2013, who ended up on the losing side in the final.

Thus concludes our study of the statistical highlights of the Champions Trophy up to 2017. With luck, it will be revised in 2021.
