    Icon12 Various Records in Cricket History

    Hi, I have some questions.

    In Test Cricket, Batsmen have chance of achieving century twice. How many Batsmen achieved this? And what is the record runs in a game?
    What is the record runs in an over (both FCC and Limited-Over)? Is there record of 36 runs in an over (or 48 runs in an over, in the case of 8-ball over)?
    What is the record number of Wickets in an over (both FCC and Limited-Over)?
    What is the largest number of balls without a run?
    What is the largest number of balls without a run / Wicket?

    TBH whoever does answer this for you is either going to look it up on Cricinfo or Google it, so you're better off just going ahead and doing that yourself.

    I remember hearing that Hales hit 51 off an over, don't know if it was first class though

    I can't recall, like the man said I would have to google it, but by memory it is like 70 odd runs as the record for runs off an over, but don't quote me.

    The only thing I do recall is that Andrew Jones was the bowler I think (is this right...) and he bowled deliberate no balls to create a declaration. Anyway everyone knows all of this already. Just use Google Loko and then post the answers here for us and we all read them and go - oh yeah that is correct.
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    A few answers off the top of my head, I'm sure cricinfo/google etc can provide the others...

    A lot of batsmen - well over 50 now IIRC - have scored two centuries in a match. Gavaskar and Ponting both did it three times, and a bunch of guys have done it twice. Graham Gooch scored 456 (333 & 123) runs in a Test against India at Lord's in 1990, which is the record for a single Test.

    36-run overs have been achieved in FC (by Sobers and Shastri), ODI (by Herchelle Gibbs) and T20 internationals (by Yuvraj) but never in Tests. I've heard of 70-odd run overs in minor cricket, but don't know the details.

    Pat Pocock took 5 wickets in a FC over in a county match in the 1970s (would need to look up the full details), which is I think the only time this has happened in FC cricket. Several bowlers have taken four wickets in an over in Tests, Wasim Akram was one and Andy Caddick did it too, but not sure of the others off the top of my head. Malinga has taken four wickets in an over in ODIs, which I believe remains the record.

    And NFI about the balls questions!

    There were 5 wickets in the last over of a Pakistan v Australia T20I but iirc Amir took only 3 and the remaining two were run outs.

    Bert Vance went for 77 in an over, 70 coming off the bat of lee germon

    Rewind: Bert Vance's 77-run over | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo


    Edit: a search tells me that the record for most poles in an over is shared by five bowlers

    Otago fast bowler Neil Wagner equals world record for taking five wickets in an over against Wellington - Telegraph


    And...

    Players who have two tons in a test match


    For the last two queries, you want overall career or individual innings?

    In Test Cricket I think probably 1152 or so.

    No runs in almost 200 overs? - when did that happen?

    Edit: Talking about wickets probably? Ya that Jayasuriya-Mahanama partnership was massive..

    Both. Longest run of "no run, not out" balls.
