STATISTICS IN ICC WORLD CUP 2015 IN BOWLING

By on Wednesday, March 25, 2015
 INDIA AND OTHER TEAMS STATISTICS IN ICC WORLD CUP 2015 IN BOWLING SPELL.   
In bowling, India doesn’t have the top wicket-taker or the bowler with the best economy rate, best average or most maidens, and so on. India’s most prolific bowler at this World Cup is Mohammad Shami, with 14 wickets. That puts him third behind Australia’s Mitchell Starc (16) and New Zealand’s Trent Boult (15).


              A telling record, though, is that India is the only team to have bowled out the opposition in every match. That is encouraging for the defending champion, particularly given there have long been concerns about India’s attack, and that modern cricket favors batsmen over bowlers.

            Stats don’t tell the whole story. For example, India knocked the United Arab Emirates over for just 102 runs and then reached that total in 18.5 overs. If India had batted first, it would have no doubt scored a huge total, pushing more of its players up the individual batting charts. Australia batted first against Afghanistan in Perth and achieved a World Cup record score of 417. Then again, Australia’s match against Bangladesh in Brisbane was rained-off (or, more accurately, cycloned-off), so the players missed out on more runs and wickets there. That makes Starc’s total even more impressive.New Zealand’s crushing victories over teams like England caught the eye, while India has been more quietly cruising along.

           Nonetheless, all of its wins have looked comfortable. When batting second, India has won by six wickets, eight wickets, four wickets and nine wickets. A close game would generally be a win by one or two wickets. When batting first, as it did in its opening two matches, India won by 130 runs and 76 runs, which is again comfortable.India may not have players at the top of the individual charts, but that in no way means the reigning champion isn’t looking mighty strong heading into the knockout phase
