new Delhi: Records are made and broken every day in the game of cricket. In this game of bat and ball, every day some player keeps on doing big things. But there are many records in the game of cricket which are not only difficult but impossible to break. In this report, we are going to tell you about 10 such cricket records which are very difficult to break.
1. More than 18 thousand runs of Sachin in ODIs
Sachin Tendulkar has been the greatest batsman in the world and he is also called the God of Cricket. Sachin has the highest number of 18426 runs in ODI cricket and breaking this record seems impossible at the moment. He is far behind Sachin in this list. Let us tell you that Sachin has the most runs in Test cricket as well.
2. Bradman’s average of 99 runs
Australia’s legendary batsman and Don Bradman, who is considered to be the most successful batsman in the world, has a record in the name of cricket which may never be broken. Bradman averages 99.94 in Test cricket. Even batsmen like Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar are not even around Bradman. No one can break this record of his in the present time.
3. Most wickets of Muttiah Muralitharan
Just like Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most runs in cricket, similarly Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan holds the record for most wickets in cricket. Muralitharan has taken a total of 1347 wickets in his cricket career. At the same time, Shane Warne’s name comes with 1001 wickets at number two.
4. Night Watchman hits double century
In Test cricket, the night watchman often comes to bat when a team is trying to save the wicket of its main batsman at the end of the day. But if we tell you that a Night Watchman has also hit a double century. Yes, in a Test match played in Chittagong in 2006, Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie scored an unbeaten 201 after landing as a night watchman.
5. Rohit Sharma’s innings of 264 runs
Team India’s hitman opener Rohit Sharma holds the record for scoring the most runs in an innings of an ODI match. Rohit Sharma scored 264 runs against Sri Lanka in 2014. This record is such that even Rohit himself may not be able to break it in the coming time. Not only this, Rohit Sharma has scored a double century three times in ODI cricket.
6. Gayle’s innings of 175 runs
In the IPL of 2013, Chris Gayle played such an innings that everyone was stunned to see, he thrashed the bowlers of Pune Warriors in this way and only fours and sixes were seen all around the field. It was not known when he scored an unbeaten 175 off 66 balls at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. During his innings, the left-handed batsman broke the record for the fastest 100 in T20s and the highest individual score in T20Is. If anyone wants to break this record in future, then he will have to bat like Gayle did that day.
7. 61760 runs in first class cricket
Former England cricketer Sir Jack Hobbs has a total of 61760 runs in first class cricket. Till date no batsman has reached even near so many runs in the first class. Even batsmen like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting are not in the top 10.
8. Most runs by Misbah without a century
Misbah-ul-Haq of Pakistan has been the best middle order batsman for him. In his ODI career, Misbah scored a total of 5122 runs in 162 ODIs at an average of 43.41 but he could never score a century. There is very little chance of this record being made again in the coming time.
9. 19 wickets in a test
England’s legendary bowler Jim Laker took 19 wickets in a Test against Australia in 1956. This is a record that can never be broken. To break this record, a bowler has to take 20 wickets. This is one of those cricket records which are almost impossible to break.
10. 8 wickets in an ODI match
Sri Lanka’s legendary fast bowler Chaminda Vaas has a big record in his name. In 2001, he took 8 wickets for 19 runs in an ODI match. Even after 21 years, no player has been able to break this record till date.
