new Delhi: You must have seen many records being made and broken in cricket many times. But today we will tell you about those 5 records which very few people know and no one has been able to break these records for so many years. There are also some such facts in it that you have never read before.
Most wickets in an ODI match
The record for the best bowling performance in a match in International One Day Cricket is recorded in the name of Chaminda Vaas. He is the only bowler in the world to take 8 wickets in an International ODI. He did this feat against Zimbabwe in Colombo on 8 December 2001. Chaminda Vaas also took a hat-trick in the 11th over of Zimbabwe’s innings in this match. In this match, bowling 8 overs, he spent only 19 runs while throwing 3 maiden overs and played an important role in packing Zimbabwe’s innings for 38 runs. Sri Lanka won this match in 4.2 overs.
shortest match of test cricket
Usually a Test match lasts for five days. Sometimes the match is drawn even after 5 days of play. In the year 1932, when the South African team went to Australia to play a five-match Test series. The fifth match was played in Melbourne which was over in about 5 hours 53 minutes. South African team was reduced to 36 runs in the first innings and could only score 45 runs in the second innings. In this way, Australia, who scored 153 runs in the first innings, won this match by an innings and 72 runs.
Most economical bowler in ODI cricket
Phil Simmons of West Indies holds the record for bowling with the lowest economy in a match. He did not perform much in Test career but made a record in ODI cricket which no one has been able to break till date. In the ODI match played against Pakistan in 1992, he took 4 wickets for just 3 runs while throwing 8 over maidens in the bowling of ten overs. This is the lowest economy in ODI history, which stood at 0.30. Till date no one has reached near this record.
Oldest player in Test Cricket
Cricketer is a sport where the fitness of the player is most important, but there is also a player who played cricket till the age of 52 years. England’s great all-rounder Wilfred Rhodes played his last Test at the age of 52 years and 165 days. It is almost impossible to break this record. In this case, Australia’s Bert Ironmonger is at number two, who played the last Test at the age of 50 years 327 days. Apart from this, there are two more records in the name of Wilfred. He has played 1110 first class cricket matches. And his name is 4204 wickets in first class cricket.
highest batting average
Australian cricketer Sir Don Bradman has been the greatest batsman in the history of Test cricket. His batting average of 99.94 in Tests is a dream for today’s cricketers. No player has reached near the batting average of Don Bradman till date. At number two is the name of Australia’s Adam Voges, who batted at an average of 61.87. In this case, only by looking at the average of the second-ranked batsman, you can guess that there is little hope of breaking Bradman’s record.
