After India won this series 3-0, the T20I results between these teams stood as follows:
India lead 10-4. It is interesting that SL have never won a T20I against India at home, though they have won in India and in neutral venues.
Looking at individual performances, starting with batting:
Most runs (100 and above):
Dhoni is the only one to have played in all 14 matches between these teams. He captained in the first 10. Next is RG Sharma (13) and T Perera (11)
Kohli has scored the most runs despite missing this series and playing in only 4 matches. He is closely followed by RG Sharma. Sharma is the only one to score a century, while Kohli has the most (4) scores of 50+.
Highest innings scores (50 and above):
RG Sharma and Rahul both broke the record of 82 made by Kohli in the previous match in Sri Lanka in September. Kusal Perera came close to surpassing Sangakkara’s SL v Ind record of 78.
Highest averages (minimum 5 innings, avg 20.00)
Dhoni has the highest average, though Kohli and Rahul will likely overtake him once they have played 5 innings. RG Sharma’s average is surprisingly low. Oddly Gambhir has the highest strike rate of 151.11 followed by Sharma.
Now for bowling:
Most wickets (5 and above):
Ashwin leads though he did not play in the last two series. Chahal will soon catch up. He is the only one to take two four-fors.
Best innings bowling (3wi and above):
India has the first 5 places here, with Shanaka’s 3-16 being the best for SL.
Best bowling averages (minimum 5 innings, all instances):
Ashwin has by far the best average, followed by newcomer Pandya. Ashwin also has the best economy and strike rate.
Now for fielding:
Most dismissals (3 and above):
Dhoni has the most dismissals as well as stumpings. However non-keeper Pandya has the same number of catches as Dhoni.
Most innings dismissals (2 and above):
Dhoni is the only one to make 3 or more dismissals in an innings. Some non-keepers have taken 2 catches.
Best dismissal rate (Minimum 5 innings, 0.500 and above):
Dhoni again at the top, though non-keeper Pandya has the same rate. Chameera has the best for SL, ahead of keeper Dickwella.
Now for all-round performances:
Overall all-round performances (see criteria):
Only Raina (!) and Yuvraj have a respectable performance here.
All-round match performance (20 and 2 wickets):
Shanaka achieved this during this series, though Yuvraj’s performance is clearly the best.
Thus ended India’s international cricket engagements for 2017.
