The Bill Frindall Match and Series records thread

There have been a few posts on the ICC rankings thread about records being achieved by our batsmen and bowlers in this series. They are off-topic on that thread and might be missed so I thought I'd start a dedicated thread and have brought one of Minor Maggie's posts here to refer to.

James Anderson needs another 6 wickets to overtake Daffy on the all-time lists. If he manages to take another 7 wickets he will equal the most wickets taken in a series which is 18 by Goughie but he did it in 12 matches. The most in 7 matches is 13 by Graham Dilley. The most wickets he has taken in a calender year is 41 and he needs another 10 to better that with up to 8 games still to play.
Anderson has now taken 12 wickets in 5 matches. Only Gough with 13 surpasses this. (We're only talking about England bowlers obviously)

And another surprising fact: Ian Bell's 337 runs is the highest tally by an English player in 5 matches, overtaking Allan Lamb's 326 in 10 matches in 1982/3. The previous highest total from 5 matches was Nick Knight's 302 v. Zimbabwe 2001/2.

However, Bell will be hard pushed to beat Kevin Pietersen's total of 454 from 7 matches in South Africa in 2004/5. And he did it in only 6 innings. Bell would have to make 118 in the next two matches, which is unlikely, though not impossible.

(Table)

Bond, Flintoff and Anderson are currently the 2nd highest ODI wicket takers this year with 33. McGrath leads with 39.

Flintoff has taken the most Indian wickets by an England bowler with 30 wickets (24 matches) and Gough and Anderson are second with 24 (17 and 13 matches respectively).

To be honest, it's no mean feat to break some of the England one day records and that's no reflection on players performances in the past, but rather the chop 'n' change policy of the selectors.

If as looks likely, Moores and his posse stick by the current one day squad through a bit of thick n thin, then we might finally see some decent legacies.

Excellent idea MF. Thanks for setting up this thread!

In the 6th match, the partnership of 106 between Shah and Wright is the highest 6th wicket partnership at the Oval by any team. Well, the record was set on 104. A few minutes later with the score on 106 Botham mumbled something about the highest partnership against India, but what he said was very unclear and no graphic came up.

It's nice to be part of a record partnership on debut.

Didn't Colly score a century at 6 once?

Nope, all his tons came from 5.

I'll just throw this in. Luke Wright is the first man to represent England in international cricket with the forename Luke. Someone on TMS came up with that, presumably Malcolm Ashton.

Currently Dimitri has hit 10 6's against only 1 4. I'm sure there must be a record there.

I suppose I'd better reveal that Anderson has risen to 7th in the all-time list of most runs conceded in an innings, for his 79 runs off 8 overs. It's a bit unfair that Broad is still ahead of him in the list (at 2nd) for his 84 off ten. Unfair because if these lists were ordered by economy rate it would be Anderson in second place for a rate of 9.87. In such a table the top place would be Mahmood's for 80 off 7 at 11.42 v. Sri Lanka at the Oval in 2006.

In these days of high scoring games I wonder how long before someone goes for 100 off 10 overs. PLEASE let it not be Saturday.

Personal bests in this series so far -
9 players

Cook 102
Bell 126*
Anderson 4/23
Mascarenhas 52
Mascarenhas 2/55
Mascarenhas 5 sixes in an over
Flintoff 5/56
Broad 4/51
Broad 45*
Pietersen 1/6
Shah 107*
Shah 1/19
Wright 50

* Shah and Wright hold the record for the 6th wicket partnership at The Oval with 106 runs

* Cook and Bell hold the record for the 2nd wicket partnership at The Rosebowl with 178 runs

* Bopara and Broad hold the record for the 8th wicket partnership at Old Trafford with 99 runs

Bell needs 26 runs to reach 1000 ODI runs in 2007 which would place him in 3rd position after Hayden 1265 and Ganguly 1009. He is England's leading ODI run scorer and Flintoff and Anderson are England's leading wicket takers with 33.

Even if it's Agakar or Zaheer Khan?

It's amusing to see that Anderson has achieved his personal best and personal worst in the same series, as has Broad. Not so amusing for the men themselves, obviously.

And I think Dimitri Mascarenhas is the first man to represent England in international cricket with the forename Dimitri.

Flintoff has now equalled the number of wickets taken by Sir Ian Botham in ODIs. Although Sir Ian did it in 116 games to Freddie's 124.

Jimmy needs two more to equal Daffy who is 4th on the all time list of ODI wicket takers for England.

Both Anderson and Flintoff have taken 35 wickets this year. They need 4 more to equal the 39 taken by Glenda this year.

Also just realised that Anderson has now taken the most wickets he has ever taken in a single series beating the 13 he took in his very first series in 2003 against Sri Lanka and Australia. However those 13 came from 10 games @ 28.69. This series he has taken 14 @ 21.92.
