Die-hard cricket fans will be proficient with a significant record of most of the games. Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar There is an abundance of batting records – the most runs, centuries and both Test and ODI matches. Australian great sir among the players with at least ten innings Donald Bradman The highest Test batting average is 99.94. Two of the three individual scores in the Test match were S Brian Larar of the West Indies.
Sri Lankan spin wizard Muttiah Muralitharan is the only player to have taken 500 wickets in both Tests and ODIs. Not surprisingly, a player has the most off-spinner wickets in any format. Jim Laker, the first bowler to take 10 wickets in a Test innings, has taken 19 wickets in a single Test match.
However, there are some interesting records with the names of famous cricketers that most fans do not know. The game takes a look at five such lesser-known records.
# 1. Shane Warne: Runs the most Test runs without a hundred in his career
Australian spin sensation Shane Warne In 145 Tests for his country, he has taken 808 wickets at an average of 25.4, has taken 3 for 10 in an innings and has taken 10 wickets. Impressive, isn’t it?
But Warne was not a bad batsman at all. He scored more than 3,000 runs (specifically 3,154) in the 1999 Test innings, averaging 12 fifties at an average of 17.32. Warne’s highest Test score was 99 against New Zealand in Perth in 2001.
Warne went down to bat at number eight in reply to New Zealand’s 534 in the first innings, scoring 99 runs. The leg-spinner tried to hit the left-spinner to the left in the first Test. Arm spinner Daniel Vettori on the leg side, just needs to be caught.
The restorations proved that it was not a no-ball that was said, which snatched Warne from a Test century. Warne’s record of 3154 runs in Tests is the record for no player to score a century.
# 2. Misbah-ul-Haq: Most ODI runs without a century in his career
Warne’s record in ODIs is held by a batsman named Misbah-ul-Haq.
The former Pakistan captain is perhaps best known for sealing India’s title win in the final of the 200 Pakistan Twenty20 World Cup.
Misbah-ul-Haq also played in 162 ODIs, scoring 5122 runs at a great average of 43.4. The right-hander has 42 half-centuries in the format, but no hundreds to his name. Not surprisingly, the Pakistan captain, the top opener with an unbeaten 969 in ODIs, has recorded the most half-centuries and has scored in ODIs without a century.
Misbah-ul-Haq’s highest ODI score was 969 in the 2013 Champions Trophy match against the West Indies at the Oval in London. It was in that match when the Pakistan batsman had not yet opened his book that the controversial Danish Ramdin was dropped. Despite Hawke’s heroism, Pakistan scored an underhelming 1,170 runs and lost by two wickets.
The next player on the list of most ODI runs without a ton is another Pakistani, Wasim Akram, Who has scored 3717 runs in 356 games. After Misbah-ul-Haq, New Zealand’s Andrew Jones (25) has scored the most half-centuries in ODIs without scoring a century.
# 3. Brian Lara: Most runs in a Test match due to a loss
This step may seem straight out of any episode found in Ripley’s Believe It or Not.
In the third Test of the 2001 series between the West Indies and Sri Lanka in Colombo, Brian Lara He played two tough dramas of 221 and 130 runs. However, the Windies lost by ten wickets.
How? Okay, it was a sparkling one-man show from Lara, with the other players running around. Southpawl stunned the way to a double ton in the first inning, but the team went just 390. Ramnaresh Sarwan (69) and Carl Hooper (56) failed to convert their half-centuries into more important scores.
Later Hasan TillakaratneIn response to its unbeaten 204, Lanka were bowled out for a huge margin of 6,227, with the Windies scoring just 222 in their second innings and Lara scoring more than 50% of his team’s runs. So, the West Indies lost the game and the series despite a great match of 351 runs from their best player.
# 4. Don Bradman: Batting at Test number, most runs in a Test innings
Have you ever heard of a player who came to bat at number seven in a Test match and scored 2,270 runs? Only a batsman of the same generation as Sir Don Bradman could have achieved this.
The story behind Bradman’s incredible milestones is as unique as the fame. Australia were bowled out for 200 in the first innings of the third Test, less than 0-2 in the 19337 Ashes series against England. Melbourne. England declared a pitch in reply to 76 for 9 which is virtually non-extensible for batsmen due to wet conditions.
Realizing the same thing, captain Bradman decided to reverse the batting order so that his top batsmen would not face music in situations where they could not play. The move proved to be a masterstroke. The pitch became easier enough when Bradman went down to bat at number seven. Australia won their second innings by 5,364 runs to 3,365 runs and won by 3,375 runs.
This was the second Test match in which a double-century player went down to bat. 7, a feat that later imitated four other players. No. 270 of Bradman. 7, however, is the highest run scored by a player batting in the position.
# 5. Sanath Jayasuriya: Most ducks in ODIs
You would normally expect to hold the record for most ducks in ODIs as well as non-batsmen like Telander. But that is not the case.
Former Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya, The explosive batsman in his playing days, has the most ducks among any player in ODIs.
In 445 ODIs, Jayasuriya has scored 133030 runs at an average of 32.36 with 28 centuries and fif fifties. However, the left-hander was out 34 times without playing his score, which indicates that Jayasuriya was a nervous starter.
However, after proving his record, once Jayasuriya catches the eye, it is very difficult for him to stop the batsman, especially in Asian situations where the ball has not done much.
Shahid Afridi (30 ducks) and Wasim Akram (26) have followed Sri Lanka in the list of most ducks in ODI cricket.
