India is currently the best sporting team when it comes to cricket. The men in blue have shown time and again why they rule the cricketing world. While it’s true that record are meant to be broken, there are players who have proven otherwise. Yesterday, during the second ODI against Australia at the iconic Eden Gardens, Kuldeep Yadav added one more to the list. Listing his name in the cricketing history, he became the third Indian to take a hat-trick in a One day International.
While it is a milestone for the young cricketer from Uttar Pradesh, it is also another record added to the list of records by the Indian team. Let’s look at some of the records by Team India that are not meant to be broken.
There may be a long list of batsman with more than 20 International centuries. To be honest, there are even few who have more than thirty centuries including Skipper Kohli. But how often do you see a player scoring a century of international centuries? Sachin Tendulkar hailed as the god of cricket is the only cricketer to achieve the milestone.
Christ Gayle might be one of the most devastating batsmen in the history of cricket along with others like Virender Sehwag, but it’s not every day a player hits six sixes in an over. It may be a rare event but India has done it twice. Ravi Shastri and Yuvraj Singh are the only cricketers to do.
Stumping is a wicket keeping art. Mostly, it depends on how fast and agile you are behind the stumps. The list of contenders are big players like Kumar Sangakkara and Adam Gilchrist, MS Dhoni leads the pack. Currently, Dhoni has 103 Stumps.
When you play a series, the basic concept is to try and win as many matches as possible. It very rarely happens that you whitewash somebody. Well, the men in blue are not behind on this list too. India whitewashed Sri-Lanka to become the only International team to do so.They say captaincy matters and skippers around the globe have proved it numerous times. But when it comes to breaking ‘Virat’ records, Kohli is the man for India. He currently holds the record of the fastest batsman to reach 10000 runs in international cricket.
