    Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam Ul Haq took a wicket off the very first ball he bowled in international cricket.

    The England cricket team is the only team in ODI history to lose a 60 over ODI final (1979 world cup), 50 over’s ICC tournament final (1992 WC and 2004 Champions Trophy) and a 20 over final (2013 Champions Trophy) in ICC tournaments.

    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    Lance Klusener, Abdur Razzak, Shoaib Malik and Hasan Tilakratne are the only players to have batted in 10 different batting positions in ODIs.

    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    MS Dhoni has never scored an ODI ton outside the sub-continent.

    Sachin Tendulkar got out for a duck only once in his Ranji Career. Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar got him out.

    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    Hitesh Modi and Mubhash Ranchhoddas Modi are the only father son duo to play/officiate in an international cricket match as batsman and an umpire respectively. The father adjudged his son out leg before wicket!
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    Courtney Walsh holds a mind boggling batting record:
    Courtney Walsh holds a very unlikely record as a batsman. He has the most number of ducks in test cricket i.e. 43. And also has the most number of not outs 61. This is simply amazing.

    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.
