India-West Indies ODIs, Feb 2022(Pt 2)

Hope you have read the first part:

Continuing with individual performances, in

Bowling:

Most wickets (20 or more):

Walsh leads with 44 wickets, closely followed by Kapil with 43. Among current players there are Jadeja and Shami with 41 apiece.

Shami has 2 instances of 4+wi, and Dillon is the only one with 2 fivers

Best innings bowling (including all 5wi or more):

Kumble has by far the best performance here, followed by Patterson and non-regular bowler Viv Richards who did particularly well against India. From current players there are JO Holder, Jadeja, newcomer MP Krishna and Shami.

Best bowling averages (1000 balls, all instances):

It looks like Viv Richards’s best bowling efforts were against India. Next are Ambrose and Kumble. Among current players there are Jadeja, Roach and JO Holder.

The best averages are by Richards and Ambrose.

The best economy rates are by Marshall and Ambrose.

The best strike rates are by Richards and Kumble.

Now for

Fielding:

Most dismissals (15 and above):

Dhoni has the most dismissals with 47 and most stumpings with 14.

Dujon (34) and Dhoni (33) have the most catches by keepers.

Richards (26) and Hooper (25) have the most catches by fielders.

From current players there are SD Hope, Kohli, Dhawan and RG Sharma.

Best innings fielding (4 or more dismissals):

Ramdin is the only one with 5 dismissals. And Dravid is the only fielder with 4 catches.

Among current players there are keepers SD Hope and Pant.

Best dismissal rate (Minimum 20 innings, 0.500):

Led by Ramdin with 1.333. The best by a fielder is 0.838 by Richards. Among current players there are Dhawan, Kohli and Pollard.

Finally we come to

All-round performance:

Overall (see criteria in table):

Richards has the best performance, with the others far behind. While Hooper and Kapil qualify as all-rounders here, current player JO Holder does not.

Match performance (30 runs and 3 wickets):

While several players have achieved this in the past, the last instance was in 2009. The two best performances appear to be by Viv Richards again: (110*/3-42 in Jan 1988, 44/6-41 in Oct 1989). Next would probably be 61*/3-32 by DJ Bravo in May 2006.

Weird conclusion: Viv Richards was the best all-rounder and among the best bowlers in these matches.
