WORLD RECORDS UNEARTHED BY H R GOPALA KRISHNA 

Unearthed the following world records in tests as well as one day games the details of which are furnished below

In Australia-India test series of 2007, in Australia’s innings there were two three figure partnerships for the seventh and eight wickets in the same test innings. A Symonds-B Hogg added 173 runs for the seventh wicket and A Symonds-B Lee added 114 runs for the eighth wicket at Sydney. This is the first occasion in the annals of test cricket that a team has posted three figure stands for the seventh and eighth wickets in the same innings.

Five batsmen registering fifties in a team’s innings and eight batsmen registering fifties in a match. This feat is credited to Pakistan as five batsmen scored fifties against Zimbabwe at Karachi and with three Zimbabwe batsmen registering fifties this match had eight fifties – a world record for most fifties in a team’s innings and also in a match

In India’s innings against South Africa at Chennai in Mar 08, for the first wicket there was a 213 runs partnership between Wasim Jaffer and V Sehwag. For the second wicket there was another 200 plus run partnership – 268 runs stand between V Sehwag and R Dravid. For the first time in the annals of test cricket 200 plus runs for the first two wickets were registered in the same test innings

This feat was repeated again by Indian batsmen at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai against Sri Lanka in the third test of 2009-10 test series. M Vijay and V Sehwag added 221 runs for the first wicket which was followed by 237 runs stand for the second wicket between V Sehwag and R Dravid for the second wicket at the end of second day’s play

Mathew Hayden of Australia became the first opening batsman in the world to score 1000 plus boundary fours.

Mahela Jayewardene set up a new record for most runs on a single ground, during the course of his three knock of 167 not out against England in the second test of the ongoing series at Colombo-SSC.  He took his run aggregate at Col-SSC to 2062 at the end of the third day of the test.  With this he not only became the second batsman in the world to aggregate 2000 runs at a single ground, but also earned the distinction of becoming the batsman with most aggregate runs at a single ground. The previous record was with GA Gooch who had an aggregate of 2015 runs at Lord’s. Gooch’s 2015 runs had come in 21 tests, while Mahela’s 2062 runs came in 19 tests. Gooch took 39 innings for his 2015, while Mahela’s 2034 runs came in 28 innings – 11 innings fewer than Gooch.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the only wicket keeper captain in the world to register twin fifties coupled with six catches in an innings of the same test. He scored 52 and 56 not out and pouched six catches in the first innings. He earned this distinction against New Zealand at Wellington in Apr 2009

SR Tendulkar became the first batsman in the world to aggregate 5000 runs on home soil while batting at number. Prior to the start of the Ahmedabad test against Sri Lanka, he had an aggregate of 4999 runs. With a boundary four, he reached the land mark and at the end of his first innings, his aggregate stood at 5003.

Mahela Jayawardene’s 79 at Col-SSC against Pakistan in 2009 series gave him another world record for most fifties at a specific venue. It was his 14th fifty at Col-SSC {09 centuries and 05 half centuries}. While creating this world record he went past three batsmen – AR Border, GS Chappell and JH Kallis who had registered 13 fifties at specific venues. AR Border of Australia had registered four centuries and nine half centuries at Adelaide Oval, GS Chappell of Australia  had registered  four centuries and nine half centuries at Melbourne and JH Kallis of South Afirca had registered five centuries and eight half centuries at Cape Town.

During the third one day game between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at Dambulla on 03.08.09, Muthaiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka with his two wickets created a world record for most wickets against a specific opposition. At the end of this game he has an aggregate of 94 wickets against Pakistan.  Prior to this game – in this category of statistics – he was on par with Wasim Arkram who had captured 92 wickets against Sri Lanka. M Muralitharan and Wasim Akram are the only two bowlers in the history of one day internationals to capture 90 plus wickets against a specific opposition.

Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya has a world record to his credit – he now has most runs against a specific opposition in the history of one day games. He had an aggregate of 2714 runs prior to the start of the third game between Sri Lanka and India in the ongoing Compaq series. At the end of this game his run aggregate against India stood at an impregnable 2812

MS Dhoni became the first wicket keeper-cum-captain in the world to pouch 100 catches and also 100 dismissals in tests

R Dravid and ST Tendulkar own the record for the most partnership runs added by a pair in tests. At the end of the series against England they have added 6520 runs. They went past the previous record of 6482 runs held by CG Greenidge and DL Haynes of West Indies

RG Sharma became the first batsman in the annals of one day game to be dismissed retired hurt not out after facing just one delivery. He was retired hurt not out after facing one delivery against England at Chester-le-Street on 03.09.11

V Kohli became the first batsman in the annals of one day gamed to be dismissed hit wicket after scoring a hundred. He was dismissed for 107 against England at Cardiff on 16.09.11

R Ashwin’s feat of 6 for 47 in the Delhi test against West Indies in the ongoing test gave him the distinction of bagging the best figures when a debutant spin bowler shared the new ball. He became the fifth bowler to perform the feat.

What is more important here is that R Ashwin feat has come after 102 years, the previous feat coming in Aug 1909 when DW Carr captured five for 146 at The Oval.

R Ashwin became the first bowler to capture six wickets under this category of statistics and has the best figures. The previous best was by R Peel who had captured five for 51 for England against Australia at Adelaide in Dec 1884. The following table lists out the performances of the five bowlers

SR Tendulkar became the only batsman in one day games to aggregate 3000 plus runs against two specific oppositions – Australia and Sri Lanka. He achieved the feat when he completed 3000 runs against Sri Lanka in Commonwealth Bank Tri Series 2012 involving Australia, India and Sri Lanka

When JEC Franklyn of New Zealand was dismissed stumped of the bowling of R Ashwin in the New Zealand second innings at Bangalore, MS Dhoni effected his 16th stumping dismissal in the dual role of captain cum wicket keeper

MS Dhoni equaled the world record for most stumping dismissals in the role of captain wicket keeper batsman held by PA Sherwell of South Africa who has also effected 16 stumping dismissals as captain cum wicket keeper.

It is interesting to note that MS Dhoni equaled a 101 year old record established by PA Sherwell. PA Sherwell’s 16th stumping was at Sydney against Australia in March 1911 and 101 years later MS Dhoni equaled it by effecting his 16th stumping dismissal against New Zealand at Bangalore in Aug 2012

At the  end of his test career – MS Dhoni has effected 24 stumping dismissals as captain wicket keeper and is the only captain wicket keeper to effect 20 plus stumping dismissals in the annals of test cricket

AJ Strauss career’s 100th test – at Lord’s against South Africa in August 2012 – coincided with his 50th test as captain of England. His first captaincy assignment was also at Lord’s against Pakistan in Jul 2006, He is the only captain in the annals of test cricket to have his first and last assignment as captain at Lord’s

Another world record – Rival captains scoring hundreds in a one day game was unearthed by me in the Ireland and England one day game at Dublin on 03.09.13. WTS Porterfield of Ireland scored 112 and EJG Morgan of England scored 124 not out. Interestingly enough, EJG Morgan had made his one day representing Ireland and England was his second one day team

SR Tendulkar is the only batsman in the annals of one day games to score 150 plus runs on five occasions. He went past ST Jayasuriya who has to his credit four 150 plus scores with his 200 not out against South Africa at Gwalior on 24.02.10
