World Cup 2019: Most dismissals by a wicketkeeper after the league stage
Australia's wicket-keeper Alex Carey tops the list of most dismissals by a wicket-keeper in the league stage of World Cup 2019. In the nine innings where he has kept wickets, he has carried out 19 dismissals, comprising of 17 catches and two stumpings.
The record of most dismissals in an innings by a wicket-keeper in the league stage is a tie, with both Carey and Tom Latham (New Zealand) splitting the top honor. Both of them effected five dismissals each in an innings, incidentally, against the same opposition -Afghanistan. While Carey took four catches and a stumping, Latham's all five dismissals comprised of catches.
In the match against Afghanistan in Bristol, Carey was involved in the dismissals of Hazratullah Zazai, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Gulbadin Naib, Najibullah Zadran, and Dawlat Zadran. Hashmatullah was stumped off the bowling of Adam Zampa.
Carey, with an average of 2.111 dismissals per inning, is the only wicket-keeper with an average greater than 2. The next best is West Indies keeper Shai Hope (1.777), who lags behind Carey by quite some distance.
So here's a look at the dismissal statistics of all the wicket-keepers in the tournament.
