Match-best without batting-bowling!

Rangana Herath has been the best-scoring series in the Colombo Test against Zimbabwe with 11 wickets. Before the selection of the best player in a Test series, the match-best will have to be selected. The joke is that, both the matches and the series were best-made. As already mentioned, the series-best Herath And in the fourth innings highest innings holder, Asla Gunaratne scored an unbeaten 80.

There are no such new events in cricket. In August 2012, Irfan Pathan took 3 wickets for 27 runs in the one-off Twenty20 match against Sri Lanka in Pallekele. Virat Kohli, who scored 68 runs in 48 balls, was the most successful batsman. India won the match by 39 runs. Kohli got the series as a prize for the bike. That is, a total of 68 runs were found in a motor bike.
The ideal example of the miserable bowling in limited-overs cricket is typical of the ‘miserable’ person in the match, while Cameron Kaffi of the West Indies. Zimbabwe were given the target of 267 in the first one-day of the tri-series in Harare in June 2001. Caribbean pacer Kafi bowled when he was bowling badly. Zimbabwe took only 52 runs in 19 overs with two wickets! No, Kafi did not get a single wicket. 20 runs in a spell bowled 10 overs. Zimbabwe, who lagged behind, could not win the match. All-rounders have a match-best ‘no run’, ‘no wicket’, Kafi!
In November 1986, in the 43.4 overs, Courtney Walsh bowled Pakistan to 143 runs in Sharjah. West Indies easily topped the goal with 9 wickets But the match-winning prize was in the hands of a batsman who did nothing – Gass! Why? Lucky got three catches on that day, two run-outs – one of Javed Miandad outof them. Judges are not able to find any other than Lagy and match-best rewards.
