Review of ODIs between India and South Africa-2

Hope you have seen the first part:

Continuing with individual performances:

Fielding:

Most dismissals (8 or more):

Boucher has the most dismissals (42), just ahead of Dhoni (41).

However Dhoni has the most stumpings (11).

The most catches by a keeper are by Boucher (40) followed by Dhoni (30).

The most catches by a fielder is by Kohli (23) followed by GC Smith (19). Also note de Villers who had 8 catches as keeper, 1 stumping and 8 catches as fielder.

Most dismissals in an innings (3 or more):

Boucher is the only one with 5 dismissals. Several others have 4, including GC Smith and T Bavuma as fielders. Bavuma’s 4 catches came in the 3rd match of this series.

Highest dismissal rate (Minimum 20 innings, 0.50):

Headed by Boucher again, followed by DJ Richardson. Kohli has the highest rate as a fielder, ahead of the “hybrid” de Villiers.

All-round performances:

Overall (see criteria in table):

Cronje is the only one with claims to be an allrounder here.

Match performance (Minimum 30 runs and 3 wickets):

Among these, Kallis’s performance at Durban in 2006 is clearly the best, followed by another by him at Jaipur in 2010.
