Player Averages - WC Cricket 2007

This WC, with India's early exit, I wanted to check on the averages of our players. It shows why statistics might be a deceptive thing. If you look below, technically only Uthappa and Dhoni are failures, while Sachin is slightly below par (his regular average of 44.xx). May be we should quote less of stats when discussing players. But a lot of intangibles creep in which cannot be documented - like ability to withstand pressure, rotate strike when boundaries dry up and so on. Some aspects which India can learn from teams like Aus and SA.
