    Icon12 Test match Records that will never be broken !!

    We all know that Cricket is one of that beautifull games where there's more records than any other games. Want to start a thread of all Test match records that you think will never be broken.

    Will start with these 5:

    1. Don Bradman's career average of 99.94
    2. Don Bradman's Most runs in a 5 Match series: 974 runs in 7 inn. @ 139.14
    3. Most runs in a Test match: G Gooch: 456 (333+123)
    4. Most wickets in a match: JC Laker: 19 (68-27-90-19)
    5. Best strike-rate for bowlers with more than 200 wickets: Dale Steyn: 39.98***

    ***Know Steyn is still currently playing, but is infront 2nd. place Waqar Younis with 3 balls per wicket lesser bowled. For Steyn to go to 2nd. place, his form must take a very big dip, something like bowling 840 balls without taken a wicket ... Steyn will also be the 1st. player taking 500 wicket with less than 20000 balls bowled

    I find the need to mention that Waqar's SR was better when he was at the stage of his career that Steyn is atm. There's no real guaranty that it won't dip by 3 points by the time he retires.

    I think Gooch's record could be broken one day. The others seem impossible though.

    Waqar's record isn't as well-balanced as Steyn's, for mine.

    Oh and Murali's count of 5-wicket and 10-wicket hauls are there to stay. So his 11 year long 'peak' where he took more than 7 wickets per match.

    1. Don Bradman's career average of 99.94 - There are higher Career averages than this. Hence it is already broken, unless you qualify the number of innings

    2. Don Bradman's Most runs in a 5 Match series: 974 runs in 7 inn. @ 139.14 - Might not be broken. However Lara hammered 688 runs in 3 matches.

    3. Most runs in a Test match: G Gooch: 456 (333+123) - Might not be boken

    4. Most wickets in a match: JC Laker: 19 (68-27-90-19) - Might never be bettered



    Here are the ones that will be hardly broken.

    1. Most test / ODI wickets - Muralitharan 800 / 500
    2. Most test runs / ODI runs - Tendulkar who'll go past 15k runs in both formats. Cook has a chance, but I'll not entertain the fact that je cpuld maintain that form for another decade.
    3. Test / ODI batsman with highest run aggregate facing the one with highest career wickets. In test's that happened in Galle, 2010 when Tendulkar faced Murali. It will happen for possibly the last time in ODIs if Murali bowls to Tendulkar in WC quarter / semi or final.
    4. Best bowling performance in tests - Laker 10/51
    5. Best bowling performance in ODIs - Vaas 8/19
    6. Most number of WC wins (Ponting / S. Waugh 3)
    7. Most number of WC appearances - Miandad and Tendulkar - 6
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran

    Most test wickets won't be broken perhaps ever.. 800 wickets is way beyond the reach of many bowlers.

    I can see Lara's record of 400 going down, with aggressive openers who can get 200+ in a day on flat tracks becoming more common. Sehwag and Gayle have had oppertunities recently.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Charles Bannerman's record for highest percentage of runs scored by one player in a completed innings (67.34%; 165 runs out of 245ao) has stood since the very first test, so I think that one's a keeper.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Lara's and Gooch's record could conceivably fall, others won't however.
    5-0

    Bettering George Lohman's record is equally improbable.

    Probably, but Tamim might get close. Or maybe even Chris Gayle.

    The only two records for mine that are here to stay forever are Bradman's average and Laker's 19 wickets. Anything else is possible. The most runs/wickets especially just needs a very good player to debut early and play for a long time, and with the increase in fitness and support staff, that really should be possible. Not saying that Murali and Sachin are anything but top shelf players, but they're not totally out of sight like Bradman and Laker.
