10 records that are impossible to break in Cricket
10 Records in World Cricket those are nearly impossible to break
Australian legend Sir Don Bradman played 52 test matches, scored 6996 runs with 29 centuries and 13 half centuries. He recorded a whopping 99.94 batting average in Test Cricket. Second is A C Vogues of Australia with an average of 61.88. So, it’s pretty understandable that this is one record that’s almost impossible to beat. He also holds a record of scoring six consecutive hundreds against England from the year 1937-38.
Sri Lankan Legendary Spinner Muttiah Murlitharan holds an incredible achievement of picking up most wickets in Cricket history. He has picked up 1347 international wickets in total.
He has also picked up 10 or more wickets in 4 consecutive test matches not only once but twice in the years 2001 and 2006.
The God of Cricket and our pride Sachin Tendulkar achieved this legendary feat of adding 100 centuries in International Cricket to his name. He also has scored the most number of 90 i.e. 10 in Tests and 18 in ODIs adding up to ‘28’ Ninety Plus scores along with ‘100’ Hundreds.
Former Australian Skipper Ricky Ponting scored a twin century on his 100th Test Match. This amazing feat came up against South Africa in Sydney in 2006. He scored 120 in the first innings and then an unbeaten knock of 143 in the second innings. He also played a significant role in chasing down a target of 287 runs on the final day of the test match.
Getting to three World Series finals is itself an achievement but scoring three deliberating performances in all of them is icing on the cake. Former Australian wicket-keeper batter Adam Gilchrist scored two fifties and one hundred in three World Series finals in 1999, 2003 and 2007 respectively.
Indian Captain Rohit Sharma holds this amazing feat of scoring three double centuries in ODIs. It will take a lot of time and effort to meet or cross this record as only four other batters have scored a single double century in ODIs.
Jim Laker from England achieved this record as he took 19 wickets in two innings of a test match against Australia in Manchester in the year 1956. No other bowler has crossed this record except another Englishman Sydney Barnes who came close to it with 17 wickets to his pocket in a Test Match against South Africa.
While the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar holds the record of most centuries (100) in International Cricket. English Cricketer Jack Hobbs holds the record of scoring the most number of centuries (199) in First Class Cricket.
Indian Batting Sensation Virat Kohli holds a very unique record of getting a wicket without even bowling. He took the wicket of England batsman Kevin Pietersen in a T20I by getting him stumped off a wide ball.
Getting to the World Series Final is itself not an easy task. But the Aussies not only went to the finals but also won it consecutively three times in the years 1999, 2003, 2007 respectively. The first win came under the captaincy of Steve Waugh and the other two came under Ricky Ponting.
