Most memorable facts in cricket history: You must have seen records being broken or made in some match on the cricket field. There are some records which you never forget and some records are made which players cannot forget even if they want to. So let us tell you about such stories, which not only made a place in the history book, but also thrilled the fans. The first name in this list comes from Shahid Afridi, who scored the fastest century at that time with the bat of Sachin.

  1. Actually Afridi did not have the right bat, then Waqar Yunus gave a bat to Afridi. This was the same bat that Sachin Tendulkar presented to Waqar Yunus. With that bat, Afridi scored the fastest century of ODIs in 37 balls with the help of 11 sixes and six fours.
  2. Hardly you would know that Sachin Tendulkar has played a match for Pakistan against India. In fact, during the 1987 World Cup, Sachin fielded for Pakistan in a practice match. Then he did not even play a Test match for India.
  3. In 1877, the first Test match in history was played between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, when Australia won that match by 45 runs. 100 years later, in 1977, when both the teams came face to face on the same ground, Australia still won, that too by 45 runs.
  4. Australia’s Allan Border created history by playing 153 consecutive Test matches. Allan Border was neither injured nor was he dropped from the team during that time. This Australian legend played 153 matches without any interruption, which is a record in itself.
  5. Indian team is the only team in cricket history to have won the World Cup title in all three formats of limited overs. In 1983, India won the 60-over World Cup under the leadership of Kapil Dev. Under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India won the T20 title in 2007 and 50 overs in 2011.
