Here’s a List Of Cricket Records That May Never Be Broken:

1) 721 RUNS PARTNERSHIP 

Thirteen-year-olds from Hyderabad B Manoj Kumar (320, 127 balls, with 46 fours) and Mohamed Shaibaaz Tumbi (327, 116 balls, with 67 fours) of St. Peter’s High School destroyed St. Phillip’s High School in this school game in Hyderabad. These two added 721 runs—in just 40 overs. Now, this one record that is very unlikely to get broken in the near future.

2) 10-10 FOR 19.4 overs

England’s left-arm spinner Hedley Verity, who took 1956 wickets in 378 First Class matches, took all 10 wickets in an innings twice and holds the record for the best figures in an innings. Whenever we talk about best bowling figures in Test cricket, we think of India’s ace spinner Anil Kumble. But, Hedley Verity’s figures of 10 for 10 in 19.4 overs stand out in this history of cricket.

3) 800 TEST WICKETS

Sri Lanka’s legendary spinner and arguably the best spinner to have ever played the game, Muttiah Muralitharan’s record of 800 Test wickets is a record that may not be touched again.

4) SACHIN TENDULKAR’S HUNDRED INTERNATIONAL CENTURIES 

India’s legendary batsman and arguably the greatest cricketer to have ever played the game, Sachin Tendulkar’s record of hundred intentional centuries is never going to broken. Batsmen will come, batsmen will go, but this record will stay FOREVER!

5) MOST CENTURIES AND RUNS IN INTERNATIONAL CRICKET 

In a First Class career that spanned 834 matches over 29 years, England’s Jack Hobbs made 61,760 runs with 199 hundreds. Well, we don’t need to say that it will never get broken.

6) SIR DON BRADMAN’S TEST AVERAGE

Sir Don Bradman averaged 99.94 for his 6,996 Test runs, and 95.14 for his 28,067 First Class runs. Sir Don Bradman’s numbers are out of the reach of mortals.

7) OLDEST TEST PLAYER

The legendary English all-rounder Wilfred Rhodes is the oldest man to ever play Test cricket. On 3 Apr 1930 he played against West Indies, at the age of 52 years and 165 days.
