World Cup 2023: Records Unlikely to Be Broken in the Upcoming Cricket World Cup

World Cup 2023: The Cricket World Cup has witnessed numerous records over the years, and some of these records continue to stand unbroken. Here are a few records that are unlikely to be broken in the upcoming tournament:

  1. Most Runs in ODIs: The record for the most runs in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) is held by the legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin scored a staggering 18,426 runs in ODIs during his career. Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka is second on the list with 14,234 runs. Given the current active players, none come close to breaking this record, making it unlikely to be surpassed in this World Cup.
  2. Most Double Centuries: Rohit Sharma, the captain of the Indian cricket team, holds the record for the most double centuries in ODIs. Rohit has scored three double centuries in ODIs, a remarkable feat. This record, too, is unlikely to be broken in the upcoming tournament.
  3. Fastest ODI Century: The record for the fastest century in ODIs belongs to AB de Villiers of South Africa. He achieved this feat in just 31 balls against the West Indies in 2015, scoring 149 runs in Johannesburg. His strike rate during that innings was an incredible 338.63. Breaking this record would require an extraordinary performance.
  4. Most Centuries While Chasing: Virat Kohli holds the record for the most centuries while chasing targets in ODIs. Kohli has scored more than 22 centuries while chasing, a remarkable achievement. Rohit Sharma is second on this list with 11 centuries. Kohli’s consistency and chasing ability have made this record a challenging one to break.
  5. Four Consecutive Centuries: During the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka achieved the incredible feat of scoring four consecutive centuries in four matches. In the 2019 World Cup, Indian batsman Rohit Sharma came close with three consecutive centuries but couldn’t surpass this record.

These records showcase the remarkable achievements of cricketing legends and are a testament to their skills and consistency. While new talents emerge, breaking these records in the upcoming World Cup remains highly unlikely, as they require exceptional performances over an extended period. Cricket fans around the world continue to cherish these records as part of the sport’s rich history.
