15 Incredible Test cricket records that are almost impossible to break

Here are the incredible Test cricket records that are almost unbreakable…

I like to play Test cricket. It is really challenging because you need to really score runs, stay in the wicket and continue for 5 days.”

– Kumar Sangakara, ex-Sri Lankan team captain

To perform well in Test Cricket is the ultimate dream of any budding cricketer. After all, as the name suggests, it really ‘tests’ your skills and endurance. On the flip side, however, there are tremendous opportunities for the players to heap records on to their name in the longest format of the game. Especially when you have two chances in a single match, there is always something in the basket.

Before taking a step ahead, we must be acquainted with the definition of Test cricket in layman language.

It is the longest format of the game, played for five days and consisting of two innings per side. (Each side may not necessarily play both the innings)

Whenever we gaze upon a particular sport, we look for the records. That is why people know Messi and Ronaldo more than any other footballers. Here is a look at the individual as well as team records that have set the bars in Test cricket that are very hard, if not impossible, to beat.

A cricket enthusiast- is best what describes me! While Dhoni is the monument of interest for me in this sport, it is Harsha Bhogle who inspires me to just write or speak. You can discuss with me about PUBG as well!
