Records of the T20I World Cup (2007-2022): Part 2

Hope you have seen the first part:

Continuing with Bowling statistics:

Most wickets (20 or more):

Shakib leads by a large margin over Shahid Afridi (the original one). From India, the best is 32 by Ashwin.

Best innings bowling (including all 5wi and over):

BAW Mendis and Herath have much better innings analyses than others including Umar Gul and Sam Curran. Curran’s 5-10 was the best in 2022. For India, the best is 4-11 by Ashwin in 2014

Best bowling averages (Minimum 500 balls bowled, all instances):

Only 7 bowlers have bowled enough to qualify. S Ajmal is closely followed by Ashwin, who is the only Indian player here. Next is Shakib.

Summing up this table:

Best averages: Ajmal, Ashwin

Best economy rates: Ashwin, S Afridi

Best strike rates: Ajmal, Ashwin.

Next we come to Fielding statistics:

Most dismissals (12 and above):

The most dismissals are 32 by ABD and Dhoni. AB de Villiers has 9 dismissals as a keeper and 23 as a fielder, while all of Dhoni’s 32 dismissals are as a keeper.

Kamran Akmal is next with 30 dismissals as a keeper, including the most stumpings at 18.

de Villers has the most catches as a fielder (23) followed by DA Warner with 20.

Most dismissals in an innings (4):

Nobody reached this level in 2022. Dhoni is the only one from India, and the only one to appear here twice. Also note the 4 stumpings by Kamran Akmal and Ramdin. DJG Sammy is the only fielder here.

Best dismissal rate (Minimum 20 innings and 0.600):

The best here is by the “hybrid” AB de Villiers with 1.066. Next are Dhoni and Kamran Akmal with 1.000.

The best by a “pure” fielder is 0.678 by MJ Guptill followed by current player GJ Maxwell (0.666)

Finally, we come to all-round performances:

Overall: Minimum 20 innings batted and 500 balls bowled:

Only 3 qualify here, with only Shakib having a creditable performance.

However, we get another viewpoint here:

Best match performance (Minimum 30 runs and 3 wickets):

The best performances here would be by DJ Bravo (66* and 4-38), followed by SR Watson’s 72 and 3-34 and Shakib’s 46 and 4-9. The best for India is by HH Pandya in 2022. Also note CR Brathwaite’s 34* which included 4 successive 6s in the 2016 final.

Records of the T20I World Cup (2007-2022): Part 1

Team performance, (ranked by W/L ratio):

This includes all teams who have participated in one or more tournaments until 2022, and also includes the preliminary rounds which are held just before the main tournament.

Here we see that Nepal has the highest W/L ratio, though they played in only 3 matches in the preliminary rounds in 2014. Of the “regular” teams, India leads with 1.80 followed by Australia (1.67), Sri Lanka (1.63) and South Africa (1.60). The current champion (England, 1.26) and runner-up (Pakistan, 1.56) are further down.

Next we come to

Batting:

Most runs (500 and above):

V Kohli has leapfrogged over MJ and Gayle to head this list by a large margin. Next among current players are RG Sharma and DA Warner.

The only player with 2 centuries is Gayle. Several others have one.

The most 50+ scores is 14 by V Kohli (no centuries). Next are 9 by CH Gayle (including 2 centuries) and RG Sharma (no centuries).

Most 4s ; 111 by M Jayawardene, 103 by V Kohli

Most 6s: 63 by CH Gayle, 35 by RG Sharma

Next we look at Highest Innings Scores (85 and above):

There are 11 centuries, including two from 2022. SK Raina’s 101* from 2010 remains the highest for India. AD Hales (116*) has the highest score among current players. There is a single 99 (unbeaten) by LJ Wright.

Now we look at Batting Averages (Minimum 20 innings, all instances):

Headed by V Kohli with 81.50, almost twice that of second-placed JC Buttler with 42.05. Kohli was aided by a large proportion of unbeaten innings.

Finally for today, the Highest Batting Strike Rates (Minimum 250 balls faced and minimum 125.00):

Headed by Shahid Afridi (154) and KP Pietersen (148). The most by a current player is 147 by GJ Maxwell. The best for India is, unsurprisingly, V Kohli with 131.

Records of “Ashes” T20I matches

The Australia-England match is due to take place on Oct 28. The prospects for play seem to be poor, considering that the match at this venue earlier in the day was washed out. Anyway, here are the records of T20I matches between Australia and England.

Note that the ground at Southampton figures in many places in the above tables. The city is also the birthplace of the UK’s new Prime Minister.

Review of Australia-India T20Is-Sep 2022

India won the series 2-1, just as they had won in Australia in 2020-21.

A summary of all T20Is between these teams:

India leads 15-10 overall, as well as 7-4 in Australia and 6-4 in India. They are level at 2-2 on neutral venues.

We now look at individual performances, starting with

Batting:

Most runs (200 and above):

Kohli leads by a large margin over Finch at # 2.

The first 5 batsmen in this list all played in the series just concluded

Watson and Maxwell are the only ones to have scored centuries. Kohli made 8 scores of 50+, while no one else made more than 3.

Highest innings (60 and above):

Note that the highest score in this series was 71* by Pandya. For Australia it was 61 by Green.

There is not enough data to get meaningful batting averages. However, we have some strike rates:

Highest strike rates (Minimum 250 balls faced, all instances):

Kohli and the next three are closely bunched together.

Now for Bowling:

Most wickets (6 and above):

Bumrah and Zampa lead here. Both of them played in the current series.

Best innings bowling (Includes all 3wi and above):

No one has a 5-for. Those with 4-fors did not play in this series.

The best in this series was 3-16 by Zampa and 3-17 by AR Patel.

Note that the best performance here (Ashwin’s 4-11) came in a World Championship match at a neutral venue.

We do not have enough data for proper estimation of bowling averages, economy rates and strike rates.

Now for Fielding:

Most dismissals (5 and above):

Dhoni is the only keeper here, with 10 catches and 5 stumpings. Kohli has the most catches by a fielder (10).

Most dismissals in an innings (3 and above):

Dhoni and Paine have the most dismissals by keepers, while Behrendorff took 3 catches as a fielder. No one took more than 2 dismissals in this series.

All-round match performance (Minimum 20 runs and 2 wickets):

Watson’s performance in 2012 is clearly the best. DR Sams achieved a modest 28* and 2-33 in this series.

Best innings bowling (includes all 5wi and above):

None of the top performance were from this edition, the best being A Zampa’s 5-19 and Mujeeb’s 5-20. Adil Rashid’s 4 wickets for 2 runs against the West Indies is almost as startling as Rangana Herath’s 5-3 against New Zealand in 2014. Also note 4-9 both by Shakib and Rashid Khan

Best bowling averages (minimum 500 balls bowled, all instances):

Shakib and Bravo are the only current players here.

S Ajmal and Shakib have the best averages.

Shakib and Afridi have the best economy rates.

S Ajmal and Shakib have the best strike rates.

As you can see, Indian players do not figure in the last two lists.

Now for Fielding.

Most dismissals (12 and above):

de Villiers and Dhoni share the top position here, while Mushfiqur, Guptill and Warner have the most dismissals among current players.

Some points of interest: de Villiers’s dismissals came both as keeper and non-keeper (7 catches as keeper, 2 stumpings and 23 catches as non-keeper).

Dhoni’s 32 dismissals is the most for a keeper (including 21 catches and 11 stumpings). However, Kamran Akmal (18) and Sangakkara (14) have more stumpings).

AR match

The best performance here would be by Tendulkar, followed by Kapil and Watson (5 Nov 2009).

Review of India-Australia ODI series-1

As you know, India won the series of January 2020 by a 2-1 margin.

Here are the results of ODIs between these teams since January 2019:

Results since Jan 2019

India won 2-1 in Australia in Jan 2019

Aus won 3-2 in Ind in Mar 2019

Ind won 1-0 in the World Cup in Jun 2019

On the whole India has done better in the past year.

We also look at the results of all ODIs between these teams:

Aus v Ind ODI 2020

Australia still leads 78-51 overall but only 30-29 in India.

We now look at the individual performances in batting:

Most runs (750 and above):

Batting-750

RG Sharma and Kohli continue to move up though they have some distance to go to reach Tendulkar’s record. Finch and Dhawan are among the other current players here.

Tendulkar has the most centuries (9) followed by Kohli and Sharma with 8.

Tendulkar also has the most scores of 50-plus (24) and is predictably followed by Kohli and Sharma with 16.

Highest innings (125 or more):

HS-125

Note that RG Sharma has the highest overall score in this series (209) as well as India’s highest in Australia (171*).

However, Smith (131) and Warner (128*) made the highest scores in this series.

Highest batting average (Min 20 innings, 35.00):

Bat Avg 35

Sharma and Kohli are the top two. Dhawan and Finch are among the other current players here. Smith and Warner have not played enough to qualify.

Highest strike rate (Minimum 500 balls faced, 80.00):

Now you can see why Australian fans want Maxwell back in the team.

Dhawan and SPD Smith have the best strike rates among those who played in 2020.

To be continued:

T20Is of 2018

The Test cricket caravan for 2018 finally comes to an end on December 30.

Meanwhile we look at the T20Is of 2018, which had concluded earlier in the month.

Here are the ICC rankings at the end of the year:

Team rankings

And the teams arranged by win/loss ratio:

Team performance

Here Afghanistan has a clean sweep, including minnows as well as regulars such as Bangladesh. Pakistan has a more valid claim to the top position, as they do in the ICC rankings.

Some statistics for individual performances are given below. As in the above table, the one match involving the ICC XI is not counted.

Most runs: 250 and above:

T20I batting-250

GJ Maxwell and Shakib Al Hasan have the best performances here.

From 2019 onwards, all T20I matches will be considered official and there will be no select list of T20I countries as there is for ODIs. So matches including presently unranked teams will figure in these statistics, as it already does with women’s T20I matches.
