Cricket Records

First team to be dismissed completely twice on the same day of a Test match

Cricket Records: When India and England played in Manchester back in 1952, the team experienced one of the most embarrassing batting collapses. On the third day of the game, the Vijay Hazare-led squad was bundled out twice and was the first team ever to receive such a drubbing. They only scored 140 runs in total in both innings, and more significantly, they lost 20 wickets in 58 overs.

Maximum 350 plus totals conceded in ODI cricket – 12

The Indian ODI team has made posting big totals on the board in recent times a habit. However, India has also suffered at the hands of other teams, which has resulted in a dismal record for them. Sadly, they have also been the squad against which the most 350+ totals have been scored. There have been 12 times where the opposition batters have heavily penalised the Indian bowlers. Therefore, it would be accurate to state that in ODI cricket, their batting strength has been masking one of their weaknesses.

Maximum number of fours conceded in a T20I inning – 29

The excitement of a T20I match between two strong international teams, though, is unmatched. When Sri Lanka toured India in 2009 for a two-match series, the same scenario occurred.Sadly for the Indian supporters, their team dropped the match. More significantly, they also saw one of their worst T20I records being set by their idols. India’s bowling effort resulted in the greatest number of fours ever allowed in a T20I innings—29—while they were batting. Therefore, it must be acknowledged that Indian bowling unit significantly missed the mark that evening.
