    Safest Records

    Cricketing records are broken every day. There are some, though, which may last millennia (unless Bradman's DNA is injected into some kid, Gattaca-style).
    Which records are unlikely to be broken in the next 50 years?

    Some are:

    RE Foster's 287* on debut
    Bradman's average of 99.94
    Jim Laker's match figures of 19-90


    Any others?

    Gavaskar's 36 off an over

    While I definetely can't see any of the one's you listed being broken, except perhaps Foster's, there's a pretty good chance, given the pace of today's cricket, that GI Allott's 101 ball duck won't be broken.

    Edit: Yes, it should be Sobers

    Nice idea for a thread by the way.

    Probably the safest for mine would be Hobbs 60,000 + firstclass runs and the 8th wicket firstclass partnership record of 433 between Sims and Trumper.

    Lara's Test and FC innings records might stand for a long time.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    Australias 21(?) consecutive ODI wins, unless of course, the ICC give away ODI status to new teams like they were peanuts.

    Not so sure his test record is set in concrete. With the rate in test cricket these days, Its not inconceivable that some could do a Hayden (380) on one of the minnow teams on a good track and go past 400 in an innings if the captain decided the record is on.
