November 10, 2020 By Sourav
I Have Read An Top 10 List About Unbeatable Cricket Records, excluding some of the real unbeatable records like Sachin's 100 100s, most runs in international matches. So finally I am up with the list that consists of real unbeatable records; your suggestions are welcome like always.
Most Unbeatable Cricket Records | 2020 Updates
10. Jack Hobbs Runs and Centuries in 1st Class
At 10 of Unbeatable Cricket Records, just mind-boggling batting figures for Jack Hobbs in First-Class cricket. Jack Hobbs scored 61,237 runs in his First-Class career, Including 197 Centuries.
Jack Hobbs played First-Class cricket till he was past 50. His career figures now seem like no one can surpass them. His runs and centuries in First-Class cricket are 10 most unbeatable cricket records in my mind.
9. Don Bradman 974 Runs in a Test Series
The next on unbeatable cricket records, Wally Hammond must have been chuffed when he totaled 905 runs on the Australian tour of 1928-29. In the next Ashes Series played in England, one of the greatest batsmen, Don Bradman, broke that record and made 974 runs in the five-match series.
His scores read 8 & 131 at Trent Bridge, 254 & 1 at Lord’s, 334 at Headingley, 14 in Manchester, and finally 232 at the Oval. The closest anyone has come to breaking Bradman’s record is when Vivian Richards Scored 829 runs out of the same opponent in 1976.
8. Phil Simmons' Economy Rate in an ODI
If you bowl out ten overs in a one day international, the yardstick for a good performance to finish with an economy rate of fewer than four runs per over (that's under 40 runs conceded). Look at Phil Simmons, he gave away just three runs for an economy rate of 0.3 runs per over in a one-day international match against Pakistan in 1992.
Now, these days ODIs have become much more attack-minded so it's hard to see Simmons's mark being surpassed.
7. Graham Gooch's 456 Runs in a Test Match
Former English Captain Smashed 333 Runs in 1st innings against India at the Lords. In the 2nd inning, he also smashed quick 123 runs in 113 balls. He scored 456 runs in this match, as no one achieved that milestone, and looking like an unbeatable record.
Although one of the best left-handed batsmen, Brian Lara, later scored 400* runs against England, someone still needs to beat the Gooch's record.
6. Chaminda Vaas' Bowling Figures in ODIs
Srilankan left-arm pacer Chaminda Vaas Bagged up 8 Zimbabwean Wicket for Just 19 Runs. And, became the only bowler in the history of the game to take 8 wickets in a one-day international match. Someone in the future could take more than eight wickets, but to do so would be miraculous given the batsman-centric nature of ODIs.
Moreover, this spell undoubtedly deserves its place in the best bowling figures in ODI's cricket history. And with this spell, he secured his place among the greatest fast bowlers of all time.
5. Australia's Consecutive Test Wins
Australia managed 16 consecutive Test match wins twice, first between 1999-2001 under Steve Waugh and second between 2005-2008 under Ricky Ponting.
They have done it in their "Golden Years", when they have the Bowling Attack likes of McGrath, Shen Warne, and Jason Gillespie, and have a batting-line which Includes Steve Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Matthew Hayden, and Adam Gilchrist.
4. Jim Laker's Test Match Bowling Figures
English off-spinner Jim Laker missed only one of 20 wickets when he took 19 wickets for 90 runs against Australia at Old Trafford in 1956. He took 10 wickets in the first innings and 9 wickets in the 2nd. Ten wickets in a Test inning have been repeated by Anil Kumble, did it 1999 against Pakistan, but 19 in a match?
We'll almost certainly never see it again. Besides, this spell also earned its place among the best bowling figures in test cricket.
3. Muttiah Muralitharan's International Wickets
One of the greatest spin bowlers of all time, Murali, was only 20 when he first bowled for Sri Lanka. Soon proved effective as he baffled batsmen around the world.
Nearly 20 years later, he has taken 800 Test wickets, 534 one-day international wickets, and 13 Twenty20 International wickets. His 1347 international wickets for sure is the unbeatable record.
2. Tendulkar's International Matches, Runs, and Centuries
Sachin Tendulkar has amassed a mountain of batting records. He has 15,837 test runs with 51 centuries in 198 matches, and 18,426 ODI runs with 49 centuries in 463 matches.
Besides, he scored 34,273 runs in his international career, and each of these numbers is unlikely to be topped. Besides, he also topped the list of the greatest cricketers of all time.
1. Don Bradman's Test Career Batting Average
In 80 Test cricket innings, one of the greatest Australian athletes Don Bradman aka 'The Don' scored his runs at an average of 99.94. The next guy on the Test batting averages list managed a tick over 60. We can do all sorts of mathematical comparisons with these numbers but they would all show one thing: Bradman is one of the best batsmen the game has seen.
That Test average of 99.94 is a number you need to know, a kind of shorthand for Bradman's exceptional talent. Just for good measure, his overall first-class average of 95.14 is unlikely to be beaten either.
The gentlemen's game is all about ups and downs, but still, we have such legends in the game, who went on to make Unbeatable Cricket Records, which doesn't seem to get over any time sooner.
