In cricket, records tumble and milestones get accomplished with every passing series. Yet, there are few achievements in the game which withstand the test of time. Some get the spotlight and some do not. Here are 20 rare feats which may not be as famous but ones any cricket fan would love to know.
In T20Is –
92 - No one has ended with a score of 95 either and these are the only two numbers under 100 not recorded yet.
In ODIs –
155 - There have been three scores of 154, and five scores of 156 but never a 155.
In Test matches –
229 – The next number after this is 238, which are the only scores under 250 which have not yet happened.
Andy and Grant Flower, Gavin and John Rennie, and Bryan and Paul Strang.
Interestingly, the twelfth man was Andy Whittall, who was a cousin of Guy Whittall.
