Some Cricket Records That May Never Be
broken No.5 Sir Jack Hobbs It’s not every day that someone scores a century even today reaching the 3 figure mark is considered a landmark achievement . So imagine how tough it must be to score 199 centuries! A player has actually scored those many, It’s the legendary English cricketer Sir John Berry “Jack” Hobbs While a bulk of Hobbs’ centuries came
in first class cricket he also scored
18 Test centuries for England and his most notable Test innings
was his knock of 211 against South Africa in 1924 Another thing that he’s famous
for is his opening partnership with Herbert Sutcliffe together, they formed one of the
most successful opening pairs of all time By the time of his retirement,
Hobbs and Sutcliffe. had opened the batting 38 times in Tests, shared 15 century opening partnerships and added 3,249 runs together
at an average of 87.81 which is the highest ever in
Tests for a pair of opening batsmen. #4 Wilfred Rhodes’
retirement at the age of 52 In this age, where fielding matters a
great deal and people who are above the age of
40 generally aren’t picked picked (there are exceptions such as
Brad Hogg and Misbah-ul-Haq) playing at 52 seems completely impossible. But Wilfred Rhodes did just that and till date he is the oldest player
to have played Test cricket He played his last Test at the ripe
age of 52 If you call Sachin Tendulkar’s career long well, you’ll have to find
new adjectives for Rhodes’ His career lasted for 30 years! This is a very difficult record to surpass as a lot of importance is given to
fitness levels today and it will be very tough for
anyone to maintain his fitness at 52. #3 Sachin Tendulkar’s
100 international centuries and 33k runs in intl cricket The third on this list is Sachin Tendulkar Many might argue that
he should be higher on this list but I think that the top two records
are more difficult to break in the current situation as
batsmen literally dominate bowlers bowlers and maybe someone someday
might break Tendulkar’s record 100 centuries This is by no mean an easy record to break To play for such a long time and
score so many centuries is something that most can only dream of But Sachin made it a reality He mercilessly demolished oppositions for a long period of time which is certainly phenomenal. It will certainly take a
supernatural effort from a very special player to
break this record. #2 Jim Laker’s match figures of 19/90 The year was 1956 England had finally gotten the edge
over arch-rivals Australia One fine morning the Australians faced the disgrace of being the first side to be bowled
out by a single bowler. Jim Laker demolished the
batsmen with his off-spin. The Aussies are traditionally
weak against spin and off-spin was particularly
not their forte as the ball came into them and
took away their favourite shot – the cut Laker made sure that no stone was
left unturned unturned as he stupefied the batsmen
on his way to taking all 10 wickets in
the first innings He didn’t stop there though he continued his magic in the
second innings by taking another 9 wickets only for his partner Tony Lock to
take the remaining scalp. 19 wickets in a Test is a near
impossible task in this era. It’ll take a Herculean effort to go
past this feat as such a domination domination by a single bowler will require really below par efforts
from the rest of his bowling partners. #1 Sir Don Bradman’s average of 99.94 At the top of the tree is
Sir Donald Bradman Who doesn’t know this name? ? He is and will always be known
for his amazing average which stands at 99.94 from 52 Tests. That’s a staggering number that no one has ever come close to A solitary boundary would have taken
his average to a century but Eric Hollies had other plans
that fateful day A perfectly bowled delivery left the great Don rooted to his spot
as he was bowled for a duck in his last innings. Although Bradman played most of his
matches against England you can’t blame the guy he was simply terrific Averaging almost a hundred runs per
innings is remarkable His team was one of the greatest ever
and he led from the front. Thanks for watching plz like share & subscribe to this
