SL has the best and the worst bowling record in T20's? Best = 4-0-8-6 (Mendis) Worst = 4-0-64-0 (Sanath)?

Don't you find it's unique to see one team owns both best and the worst bowling record in T20's?

Best bowling figures in T20's = Mendis 4-0-8-6 (with 20 dot balls which also is a record?)

Wost bowling figures in T20's= Jayasuriya 4-0-64-0 against Pakistan!

Just looking at those figures don;t you think, Ajantha Mendis's effort was 8 times better than Jayasuriya's?

    It is a bit wierd.

    Personally I think that Mendis's effort was more than 8 times better.

    If you calculate it as 1 wicket equates to 25 runs (runs that you would judge the performance of a batsman by), that would be like an individual scoring 150 in a T20 (has barely been done even in domestic tournaments). 16 runs an over and no wickets is like a batsman getting a duck but taking up 4 overs worth of deliveries. 150 individual runs off a maximum 20 overs is 7.5 an over. So 7.5x4 overs of wasted run scoring makes Mendis's performance about 30 times better than Jayasuriya's.

    That is the only way I can figure that would be a relatively good measurement between the two as you can't say 8 times better because that is just comparing the runs per over, that is not taking in to account the effect taking multiple wickets has on the batting team. What I have worked out is like the duckworth lewis version of determing differences in individual player perforances. Not sure that my method will stick too long though.

    They're interesting stats Dinith, but it's all on the day in each and every game.

    64 runs off 4 overs does represent a serious tonking though and 8-6 is going to take some beating.

    I rather admire Ajantha's previous record, 6/16 against the Australians. .it's a remarkable achievment rather than breaking his own record against minnow team like Zimbabwe, hope he'll continue this form
