Records are meant of be broken, they said. Barring the likes of Muttiah Muralitharan, Sachin Tendulkar, Don Bradman and a few more, the top positions keep changing hands from time to time. The Master Blaster once broke Sunil Gavaskar’s record of most Test runs.
Corey Anderson broke Shahid Afridi’s record of the fastest ODI ton and in the very next year, AB de Villiers went to the helm. Apart from the significant ones, there are plethora of other small records, which get overhauled from time to time.
Going into the future too, a number of new records will be created, which won’t be much of a surprise. However, if delved deep down, a few of the numbers may have the least chance of getting toppled. It will need some superhuman effort thereafter to overhaul them.
In the article, let’s take a look at five futuristic records that may remain unscathed forever
Rashid Khan’s tally of most T20 wickets
Rashid Khan made his T20 debut back in 2015 and in those four years, have played 190 T20s. But it was only from 2017 that he started to peek and became a sought-after player across the globe. In 2018, he was the leading wicket-taker in T20 cricket with 96 scalps.
In his career thus far, the leg-spinner has 269 wickets. In the all-time list, the Young Turk is already 11th and that at an age of 21. If he keeps up with his form, he can even top the list in the next three to four years. Being a spinner, physically, isn’t quite rigorous as that of a pacer.
So, he can play until the age of 40 or even longer. If he keeps up to the fitness standards, he may well end up playing around 1100 to 1200 games. If he continues with his form, then there is a chance for him getting in excess of even 1500 wickets.
