Posted by Hreet Nigam on July 5th, 2022

Cricket is religious faith in India, and Indian cricket players are loved by their adoring fans wherever they go throughout the world.

Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, and the present crop of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are just a few of the legends. These cricket players have set several global records, and discussed below are a few of India's best.

Let's have a look at some of the India t20 record that the players have set.

1. The Most Sixes to End a Game

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a cricket player who is recognised for his big-hitting skills and, more significantly, his ability to close off games. When he mixes two of these characteristics, he makes his one-of-a-kind album. Dhoni owns the milestone for the most matches finished with sixes, having done it nine times throughout his playing career with India.

2. Global Cricket's Highest Centuries

Sachin Tendulkar's accomplishment is something that Indians are particularly proud of. With 100 hundred throughout all categories, the renowned Indian batsman retains the world record for maximum centuries.

3. First Innings in the First Century

In both Tests and ODIs, KL Rahul holds the distinction of being the 1st batsman to make a century in his debut innings.

4. A hat-trick in the opening over

Irfan Pathan, an Indian pacer, set a new milestone when he became the 1st player to record a hat-trick in the opening over during a test game.

5. Wickets to 200 in the shortest amount of time

Ravichandran Ashwin made history by becoming the quickest bowler to reach 200 wickets, doing it in merely 10291 deliveries.

6. The Highest Number of Runs 

Virender Sehwag, India's explosive batter, became the first player to achieve 7,500 runs as an openers in one-day internationals.

7. Double-double

Virender Sehwag is perhaps the only cricketer to hit a triple hundred in Tests and a double hundred in One-Day Internationals.

8. Captain with the Most Caps

Mahender Singh Dhoni is perhaps the most capped skipper in cricket annals, with 331 matches under his belt in 2016.

9. The Number of Balls Faced

India's Warrior, Rahul Dravid, is the first batter in Test annals to face 30,000 deliveries, with a record of 31258 balls faced over his career.

10. The Fastest Ton on Debut

Shikhar Dhawan remains the world record for the quickest hundred on Test debut, completing the feat in just 85 deliveries.

11. The Greatest Number of Stumpings

With 190 stumpings, Mahender Singh Dhoni owns the benchmark for most stumpings. At 139, he surpassed Sri Lankan cricket player Kumar Sangakkara's milestone.

12. Initial Three Innings: 3 Hundreds

Mohammed. Azharuddin holds the distinction of being the initial batsman in Test history to make three hundred in his 1st three innings.

13. Centuries on the Same Day

Vijay Hazare became the first and sole batsman in history to make hundreds on successive days on 3rd Day 3 as well as the 4th Day.

14. Tests with the Most Innings

Sachin Tendulkar seems to be the only batter in cricket history to have played over 300 innings.

15. The Highest Number of Catches in Tests

Rahul Dravid is also noted for possessing the most catches in Test cricket history, with 210 catches in total.
