Some records are made with efforts and ambitions in life. Such history-making records are not easy for everyone. It needs great luck and hard work. But sometimes, we are held responsible for such records which we don’t want to own at any cost. In cricket, we find such moments with international players.
Despite the growing number of records in Cricket in recent years due to changes in rules and Bat sizes, there are some records that don’t make the players proud.
1. Highest Number Of Ducks In Test Cricket:
The Record which Jayasuriya holds in One Day Internationals is owned by none other than Courtney Walsh of the West Indies who got out for Zero 43 times in his Test Career. Walsh was one of the most devastating fast bowlers of his time and it is not a surprise that a tailender holds this record. The pacer who has got more than 500 Test wickets is followed by Chris Martin of New Zealand with 36 ducks.
2. Highest Number Of Ducks In ODIs:
The unfortunate holder of this record is the Sri-Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya. The left-arm aggressive batsmen who set the world alight with his ferocious batting as an opener in the 1990s has this record of getting out 34 times on a Zero score which is the most in the history of One Day Internationals.

The Sri-Lankan Legend is followed by a Pakistani legend Shahid “Boom Boom” Afridi who got out for Zero 30 times during his ODI career which recently finished.
3. Highest Number Of Bowled Outs In Tests:
Getting bowled out is one of the worst dismissals for a batsman. Hearing the sound of your wickets falling over as you stand there and hold your pose is a gut-wrenching feeling for any batsman in the world.
But who holds the record for getting out the most number of times in test cricket by getting bowled? Hold your breath! Because it is none other than “The Wall”! YES! The legendary Rahul Dravid of India.
Arguably the third greatest player in the history of Test cricket is the unlikely owner of this record since he had one of the most sold techniques and temperament. Dravid got out 54 times getting bowled out.
4. Most Expensive Over Bowled In Test Cricket:
Getting hammered by the T20 International Captain of Australia, George Bailey for 28 runs in an over and that too in the famous Ashes Series has to be one of the worst experience for any bowler. This distinctive record is bagged by the James Anderson of England who recently became the Highest wicket-taker for England in tests.
5. The Longest Over Conceded In Tests With Most No-balls:
Another unfortunate record that is held by another fearsome bowler in the history of tests. Curtley Ambrose is the holder of these records in a match where he was surprisingly also the Man of The match for a 5-wicket haul. The West-Indian fast bowler bowled a 15-ball over with a record 9 No-Balls in this test match held in Perth in 1993.
6. Longest Over in an ODI match:
Mohammad Sami of Pakistan is the holder of this record that is still fresh in the memory of avid Cricket viewers. Sami bowled a 17-ball over against Bangladesh conceding seven wides and four no-balls in Asia Cup 2004.
7. Most Runs Conceded In A Test Without Taking A Wicket:
The Pakistani-born South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir conceded 267 runs without picking up a single wicket. He bowled 37 overs to rack up these figures against Australia in Adelaide in 2012.
8. Slowest Century In Test Cricket:
The Slowest ever Century in test cricket was made by Mudassar Nazar of Pakistan. In 1977-78, he completed a century against England in Lahore in 557 minutes which remains the slowest century to this day. And no one is able to break Mudassar’s record till 22 May 2019
