Note: In a career context, all numbers are restricted between 0 and 5. However, in a match context, the numbers are not restricted. For simplicity, we are changing the scale here in the report and expressing every Match Impact number as a percentage. The maximum percentage (100) is assigned to the highest impact player of the match. All other players in the match are scaled relative to him. Negative Match Impact indicates that not only did the player not contribute in the match, but he also had an adverse effect on his team’s chances.​​

Scorecard

England avoided a whitewash as they held on to a consolatory five-run win over India in Kolkata on Sunday (22 Jan). The final series scoreline read 2-1, to the hosts.

Hardik Pandya’s all-round effort saw him finish as the highest impact player of the third ODI. He was also the highest impact bowler.

Sharing the new ball, Pandya claimed three top/middle-order wickets (3 for 49 in ten overs) and broke a partnership. Later on in the chase, the right-hander kept India’s chances alive with a 43-ball 56 – absorbing pressure and building a partnership along the way. As it turned out, he had the highest Strike Rate Impact amongst the Indian batsmen and was, by far, the most restrictive bowler of the evening.

Kedar Jadhav was the highest impact batsman of the dead rubber for his 75-ball 90, an innings under pressure, highlighted by a 104-run stand with Pandya for the sixth wicket (in just 13.5 overs).

Ben Stokes, who was adjudged ‘Man of the match’ for his all-round showing (an unbeaten 39-ball 57, and 3 for 63 in ten overs including two top/middle-order wickets), was England’s highest impact player.

Two players from the visiting English team failed in the match, while the home team had four such players. It turned out to be quite a difference considering that Bhuvneshwar Kumar, R Ashwin and Ajinkya Rahane registered a negative impact which adversely affected India’s chances.
