Let’s quickly review some of cricket’s greatest global records
10. Oldest cricketer to play for an international team
The Turkish cricketer Osman Goker holds the record for the oldest international cricket player debut. This is record number 10 on our list of great cricket world records.
Goker set the record on August 29, 2019, when he was 62 years old. When he played his first game for Turkey against Romania Cup at Moara Vlasiei Cricket Ground in Ilfov County, Romania, he was 59 years and 181 days old.
9. The highest catch in cricket:
We have a female cricketer at number 9 on our list of those who have caught the most cricket balls. Alyssa Healy, an Australian cricketer who is 32 years old, holds this great cricket world record.
At the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground, where the record was set, Healy did it. She caught the ball that was thrown from 80 meters up by a drone.
8. Most watched cricket fixture:
On number 8 of our Fantastic Cricket World Record, we have a match between India and Pakistan, two of the best cricket teams in the world. It’s not a secret that the two countries have a lot of trouble with each other outside of sports.
Because of this, when the two countries play each other in an ICC event, a lot of people show up to watch. The most-anticipated match at the 2019 World Cup in Manchester was their match.
7. Cricketer who scored six sixes in an over at a young age:
Next, we’ll talk about the youngest player who has ever hit two sixes in the same over. This was done by the English cricket player Anthony McMahon.
McMahon broke the record on May 24, 2003, when he was 13 years and 261 days old. At the Eppleton Cricket Club in Durham, UK, he played for Chester-le-Street against Eppleton.
6. Fastest delivery of a cricket ball:
Shoaib Akhtar, who is 47 years old, used to play cricket for Pakistan and is now a commentator. He is known as the “Rawalpindi Express,” and he holds the record for throwing a cricket ball as fast as anyone else.
Akhtar was the first bowler on record to throw a ball at 100 miles per hour. He did this not just once, but twice. But at the World Cup in 2003, he set the record for the fastest bowling speed.
5. 264 runs was the greatest ODI score:
Rohit Sharma, an international cricketer from India and the current captain of the Indian team, comes in at number 5. People think that the 35-year-old is one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket.
In 2014, Sharma had the best score in an ODI with 264 runs off 173 balls. At the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, the Indian cricket team played against the Sri Lankan team.
4. 1300 international wickets:
People think that Muttiah Muralitharan is one of the best bowlers who has ever played international cricket. The 50-year-old former Sri Lankan player has taken more wickets than anyone else in the history of Test cricket. When he retired, Muralitharan had taken 1347-800 wickets in Tests, 534 wickets in ODIs, and 13 wickets in T20Is. Because of this, he became the cricket player with the most wickets in international play.
In 2002, Muralitharan was named the best Test match bowler by Wisden’s Cricketer’s Almanack. He was also the first cricket player from Sri Lanka to be put in the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. Many fans and critics agree that it’s unlikely that any other player will beat his record.
3. The highest 400-runs Test innings score:
We’re down to the top 3, and Brian Lara, who used to play cricket for Trinidad and Tobago on the international level, is on the third spot. He is now 53 years old, and most people agree that he was one of the best batsmen ever.
Lara has the record for the most runs scored in a Test innings, with 400. After scoring 400 not out in a Test innings at Antigua during the 4th Test against England in 2004, he came up with the form.
2. Averages of 99.94 in Test cricket:
Sir Don Bradman’s record is on our number 2 spot. He is widely thought to be the best batsman of all time. He was born on August 27, 1908, and his test score of 99.94 is an amazing record.
Bradman played baseball professionally for 20 years. During his career, he took part in 52 Tests and scored a total of 6996 runs. That means that the average is an amazing 99.94.
1. 100 International Centuries:
And the number one spot goes to Sachin Tendulkar, the Master Blaster. The Indian cricketer, who is 49 years old, is known as one of the best batsmen in cricket history. Tendulkar is one of the cricketers who is most loved and even worshipped. He has done a lot of great things and won a lot of awards, but his record of 100 international centuries in cricket is the most impressive thing he has done.
During the 2003 World Cup, he did this. Tendulkar got the Man of the Tournament award for scoring an amazing 673 runs at a rate of 61.18 per game. The Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy was given to Tendulkar at the 2010 ICC Awards. With 34,357 international runs, he is the top run scorer of all time (15,924 runs in ODIs and 18,426 runs in Tests).
