10 Most unusual records held by teams and players.

3. Sanath Jayasuriya – More ODI wickets than Shane Warne

Shane Warne has another bitter surprise for his fans. Sri Lankan opener Sanath Jayasuriya mostly filled in for the fifth bowler and was more of a batsman who could bowl.

Jayasuriya developed himself into an effective left-arm spinner and produced many match winning spells. He had the knack of picking wickets and breaking key partnerships. And was termed a man with the golden arm.

But, it is out of imagination that the most successful leg spinner of this game has lesser number of ODI wickets than him. Warne has only 293 wickets to his name in the 50 overs format whereas Jayasuriya scalped 323 wickets.

4. Muttiah Muralitharan – Most not outs in international cricket – (Tests+ODIs+T20Is)

Muthiah Muralitharan was a giant of this game. He has an Everest of wickets to his name. This record is unexpected in every sense as you don’t expect to see Muttiah Muralitharan’s name at the top of a batting record list.

But, with 118 not out innings in international cricket (Tets + ODIs + T20Is), Murali is at the top of the list of the batsmen with most not outs in international cricket.

Murali was a tail ender who batted at number 10 and 11. Usually, he would be the last man standing after the innings folded which may be the only reason why he holds this record.

5. Sachin Tendulkar – More 5 wicket hauls in ODIs than Shane Warne

Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne enjoyed a very sporty rivalry between them on the field. One was at the top of the game with a bat in hand while the other ruled the spin-bowling department.

It’s hard to believe that Sachin has more number of five-wicket hauls than Warne in ODIs. Tendulkar has two five-wicket hauls; one against Australia and the other against Pakistan.

Shane Warne, on the other hand, has only one fifer in 50 overs cricket which he took against West Indies in the year 1996. Turns out Sachin not just edged him in their contest but with the ball as well.
