In cricket, many records are made, many are broken, but records are made to be broken. But today we are going to tell you about some of the cricket records that may never be broken.
19 wickets in a One Test match
English off-spinner Jim Laker took 19 wickets in a Test match against Australia in 1956, the most by any bowler in a Test match to date.
Jim Laker made 9 for 37 in the first innings of the Test match against Australia and 10 for 53 in the second innings and took a total of 19 wickets in the match.
Average 99.94 in the Test
Australian cricketer Don Bradman scored 6996 runs in 52 Test matches, including 13 half-centuries and 29 centuries, while his batting average of 99.94 is a record to date.
199 First Class Centuries
You know about Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 international centuries in India, but did you know that there was a better batsman in cricket who set a world record by scoring 199 first-class centuries.
Yes, England’s Jack Hobbs scored 199 centuries in 834 first-class matches.
The record for most first-class wickets
The record for most wickets in first-class cricket is held by England left-arm off-spinner Wolfred Rhodes, who took a record 4,204 wickets in 1,110 first-class matches.
Wolfred Rhodes’ first-class career spanned 30 years. He took five wickets in 287 first-class innings and lost 10 or more wickets in 68 matches.
Maiden Super Over in T20 Match
Bowlers are seen maiden in Tests and ODIs. Even in fast-paced cricket T20s, bowlers do not allow batsmen to score full overs. Over Maiden?
Yes, this feat has been done by West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine.
In 2014, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana Warriors competed in a Caribbean Premier League match.
Trinidad and Tobago scored 118 while playing first. In response, Guyana scored the same number of runs and the story reached the super over.

Playing 200 Test matches
Today’s young players are showing more interest in the shortest format of the game (ODI and T20) while the series of Test matches is also being played very little.
India’s Sachin Tendulkar stunned the world by playing 200 Test matches in his 24-year career, which is still the record for most Test matches played by any player.
1347 International wickets
This is the incredible feat of Sri Lankan bowler Murali Dharan who took 800 wickets in 133 Test matches, 534 wickets in 350 ODIs and 13 wickets in 12 T20s.
He is the highest international wicket-taker in the history of cricket, taking a total of 1347 international wickets.
Making 3 double centuries in ODIs
Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma made a record of three double centuries in ODI cricket. This record has not been repeated or broken so far and it is thought that this record is very difficult to break.
Knight Watchman’s double century in Test Cricket
In Test cricket, a night watchman is sent when there are only a few overs or a few balls left at the end of the day’s play and the teams have to save the wicket of their key batsman.
In the 2006 Test match between Australia and Bangladesh, Australian fast bowler Jason Gillespie entered the field as a night watchman and scored an unbeaten 201 runs which is a record till date.
