One Day International

One Day International Cricket Records

The top four Associate members of the International Cricket Council (ICC), in addition to international cricket teams who are Full Members, participate in One Day International (ODI) games. 

Contrary to Test matches, one inning is contested for every team in ODIs, which have a cap of 50 overs each inning (even though in history, it has sometimes exceeded 55 or 60 overs).

Unbreakable One Day International Cricket Records:

There are several unbreakable ODI records in the history of cricket. Below are a few examples:

One Day International Bowling’s Best Figures

Chaminda Vaas’ return versus Zimbabwe in 2001 is unlikely to be challenging to match, given that an ODI today can only include a total of 60 deliveries. 

Taking eight wickets at 19 runs, the talented left-armer bowled well. Or, to look at it another way: eighty percent of the African team’s wicket, as they were knocked for 38 runs off just 15.4 overs. 

Vaas’ ODI record stats are probably to be surpassed anytime soon, regardless of the fact that the opponent was a relatively weaker team.

Best Performance By A Nightwatchman

Most of their lives are devoted to standing in fields, watching the opponent bat, tired out of their wits as pro cricketers. As a result, it would be fascinating to learn what the Bangladesh fielders were contemplating as Australia’s nightwatchman Jason Gillespie struck an incredible unbroken 201 in their 2006 Test match.

However, this absolutely phenomenal inning in Chittagong would be challenging to beat. “Dizzy” concluded his career with a respectable tail-average ender of 19.59. in light of the fact that a nightwatchman’s primary responsibility is to remain on the wicket for a couple of overs at the closing of the day.

In A Single Inning, Most Balls Delivered

After his heroic actions versus England in 1957 in Edgbaston, Sonny Ramadhin should have wanted an ice bath. The second inning saw the spinner deliver the most shots ever delivered in a single inning, 98 overs, and an astounding figure. 

In recent times, Zimbabwe’s Ray Price’s tricky 79 overs in a Test match with South Africa in 2001 marks the best anyone has come.

Most International Wickets

Considering the typical amount of time an international cricketer stays at the top, Muttiah Muralitharan’s impressive career wicket total almost seems unattainably high. With 1,347 victims, notably 800 in Test games and 547 in white-ball tournaments, the spinner terrified batters for the entire span of two decades.

Given that Murali is still 346 wickets above Shane Warne, who is his nearest contemporary, it will require a special kind of career even to come even close to this total.

Oldest Test Cricketer

Oldest Test Cricketer

Wilfred Rhodes, a famous all-around player from England, might hold three unbreakable records. However, given that players no longer play nearly as much first-class cricket as they used to, only one record will suffice in order to add some variation to this list.

At the grand old age of 52 years & 165 days, the Yorkshireman is the oldest person ever to play Test cricket. He is renowned for starting at the bottom of England’s batting lineup and ending as the opener. This milestone will be different from the present era, as players are usually gone by the end of their thirties.

Most Sixes In One Day International:

Shahid Afridi is known to have the highest number of sixes in one day of international cricket. He has a total of 351 sixes in a total of 369 innings.

This match was between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in Singapore in the 1996 world cup. Kusal Perera, the Sri Lankan batter scored the third-fastest fifty in ODI cricket in 17 balls against Pakistan in 2015.
