Summary of all England-India Tests-Sep 2021 (Pt 2)

Hope you have read Part 1.

Continuing with individual performances in Bowling:

Most wickets (40+):

Anderson has by far the most wickets. However, the most five-fors are by Chandrasekhar (8) followed by Ashwin and Botham with 6. Bedser is the only one with two ten-fors (which came in his first two Tests).

After Anderson and Ashwin, other current players include Broad, Ishant, Moeen and Jadeja.

Best innings bowling (including all case of 7wi or better):

The first few entries are from long ago, though Jadeja, Ishant and Broad are here. Ishant has the best figures for India in England (that too at Lord’s)

Best match bowling (including all cases of 10wm or better):

Interestingly, none of the two leading current Indian players (Ashwin and AR Patel) played in this series. Only Jadeja and Anderson represent the current players.

Best bowling averages (Minimum 2000 balls, maximum 35.00):

The best bowling averages are by Illingworth and Lever who played in relatively less matches. Anderson, Broad and Ashwin have the best averages among current players.

The best economy rates are by Illingworth and Nadkarni (who else?)

The best strike rates are by Lever and Willis.

Now for Fielding:

Most dismissals (30 or more):

Dhoni and Knott lead, although Kirmani has the most stumpings. Cook, Gavaskar and Dravid have the most catches by non-keepers.

Innings dismissals (5 or more):

Taylor and JT Murray lead, with current players Bairstow, Pant and Buttler bringing up the rear.

Yajurvindra has the most catches as a non-keeper, which came on his debut. He is still the only non-keeper to achieve this on debut.

Match dismissals (7 or more):

Led by RW Taylor, whose 10 was a Test record at that time.

There are Buttler (8). Bairstow, Pant and Rahul from among current players. Yajurvindra and Rahul have the best among non-keepers. Yajurvindra and Pant were making their debuts. Yajurvindra’s 7 catches are still the record by a fielder on debut.

Best dismissal rate (Minimum 20 innings, 0.75):

Pant tops this list, with Buttler, Bairstow and Rahul among current players here.

Solkar and Rahul have the best dismissal rates among non-keepers.

Finally, all-round performances:

Overall (see criteria from table):

Ashwin has by far the best record here, with MM Ali and Jadeja the next among current players.

Unexpected names here include Borde and Shami.

Match performances (50 and 5wi):

Many outstanding feats here, notably Botham’s century and 13 wickets in 1980. There are also century/5wis by Mankad and Ashwin, and fifty/10wms by Lever and Jadeja. JK Lever remains the only one to achieve this on debut.

Botham, B Kumar and Ashwin appear here twice.

However, there was no such instance from this series.
