    Which Records are least likely to be broken?

    I think the most difficult record to break will Afridi's 37 ball hundred, the second fastest is a joint record for Lara and Afridi in 45 balls, which is 8 balls or 21% more balls than the original record.

    what other records will be the hardest to break?

    Easy - Jim Laker's record of 19 wickets in a Test. That will never be equalled, never mind broken.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...

    Well, obviously I'm talking about someone with a reasonable amount of Test cricket (say 30 matches).

    Also: 2.75 (ratio of innings/centuries).

    This might sound a bit naive, but I don't see anybody overtaking Wasim Akram's record of most wickets in ODIs. I thought Lee might have had a chance, but not sure about that anymore.

    One that will never be broken is Jack Hobb's record of 199 FC centuries

    One that could be broken but it will be difficult and I would love to watch the player that is capable of doing it is

    Bothams record of taking 21 tests to be the fastest to 1000 runs and take 100 wickets in tests.

    EDITED- to avoid confusion

    First Test Match.
    First Test Century.
    First Test Wicket.

    etc.
    Or something.

    Murali already has 432. I think he can take another 70-80?

    Despite the never-ending flat tracks and Australia's 20+ tests next year, I don't think anybody will be able to overtake Yousuf's record of most runs in a calendar year anytime soon.

    I thought of him but wasn't he talking about retiring from ODIs after the WC or soon after it?

    Does it have to be in the beginning of a career? Otherwise, I could see someone doing it.
