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
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.
