11. Donald Bradman’s Test average

Bradman has the highest-ever Test average (99.94) in history. It is an average which has never been achieved by even the greatest of all time batters.

10. Brian Lara’s 400*

The ‘Prince of Trinidad’ went on to score an unbeaten 400 against England in Antigua in April 2004. It can be rightly said that Lara’s highest individual Test score of 400 might never be broken.

9. Muttiah Muralitharan’s 800 wickets

He is also one of the most successful bowlers to have registered over 1000 international scalps. However, it is his overall Test tally of 800 wickets that might never be broken.

8. Oldest Test Player to have graced the game

One such player was English all-rounder Wilfred Rhodes who became the oldest player to play Test cricket. He made this record on April 03, 1930, against the West Indies, at the age of 52 years and 165 days.

7. Hanif Mohammad’s longest stay at the crease

Pakistan’s ‘Little Master’ made a unique Test record against West Indies at Bridgetown in January 1958 as he spent more than sixteen hours at the crease and successfully saved a Test match for Pakistan which seemed to be slipping away.

6. Shortest Test match between Australia and South Africa in 1932

The Melbourne Test match between Australia and South Africa in 1932 was the shortest Test match ever played with a result in just five hours and 53 minutes.

5. Rahul Dravid’s 210 catches

A unique feat held by Dravid in the longest format is having taken 210 catches as a fielder, which is the most by any player. 

4. Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene’s 624-run partnership

Both have been the pioneers of Sri Lankan triumphs throughout the 2000s and till the mid-2010s including the 2014 T20 World Cup. Meanwhile, the duo registered a world-record partnership of 624 runs for the third wicket against South Africa at Colombo in 2006.

3. Ricky Ponting’s 108 Test wins as a player

Nonetheless, as far as his individual excellence in Test cricket is concerned, the former Aussie skipper has won as many as 108 matches as a player, which is impossible to be broken that easily as winning over 100 Test matches as an individual demands the next level of greatness.

2. Mark Boucher’s 555 dismissals

The current South Africa head coach has a record 555 dismissals in the longest format of the game, which is a far-fetched dream for any active or future stumpers.

1. Virat Kohli’s seven double centuries as Test skipper

His Test double-centuries came against the West Indies 200 (2016), New Zealand 211 (2016), England 235 (2016), Bangladesh 204 (2017), Sri Lanka 213 and 243 (2017), and South Africa (254*).
