There are many more..
A lot of records that we once thought were impossible to break have been broken or are at least likely to be broken in the near future. But there are some records that, just for their prodigious numbers, are unlikely to be broken. Below I enumerate some of them which you may not be aware of (Test Records only):
Rahul Dravid facing 31,258 deliveries in his Test career. The next closest active player is Cheteshwar Pujara at 12,664.
Rahul Dravid’s 44,152 minutes spent at the crease in Tests.
Hanif Mohammad’s 970 minutes at the batting crease in a single inning (Longest individual innings in terms of minutes). He scored 337 vs WI in 1958.
Mark Boucher’s 555 dismissals in Test Cricket. It’s the most by a fielder in Test Cricket.
Jacques Kallis’s record of 13000+ runs and 250+ wickets in Test Cricket. He was the perfect all-rounder.
The records/numbers are backed by espncricinfo stats.
In no particular order
- Sachin's number of hundreds in test cricket . Highest number of test matches (mainly because of decrease in number of test played these days )
- Murali's 800 wickets in test
- Bradman's 99.94 average in test
- Dravid is the only international cricketer to have scored more than 10,000 runs batting at no. 3 position - 10,524 runs from 219 innings at an avg. of 52.88 with 28 hundreds and 50 fifties and a highest score of 270.
- Kallis is 1st & only player in cricket history to achieve the mark of 10,000 runs in Tests & ODI each and more than 200 wickets in the Tests and ODIs each
On a lighter note the love for cricket in India will also never be broken in years to come :)
