Cricket World Record is a Road to Success

By Ella Wilson

Cricket, cricket and more cricket! This is what we all are hearing and seeing in the present scenario. Cricket has become an obsession for children and teenagers. It is the effect of cricket that we get to see a Sachin, a Brian Lara, a Harbhajan, a Steve Waugh or a Shoaib Akhtar in every house. Every cricket fan has complete knowledge of the cricketing records of their favorite players. Some collect this information as a hobby, while others collect them for enhancing their knowledge of cricket.

Cricket world records enable a player to establish his stand in the world of cricket. In fact, this is also a ticket for the players to enter the "hall of fame". Cricket world records are the road to success for a player. For example, Shahid Afridi holds the cricket world record for scoring the fastest 100. On the other hand, Sanath Jayasuriya holds the cricket world record for scoring the fastest 50. Their cricket world record has made them a household name. The records have also helped the players to gain good rankings on the popularity chart.

Many a times, cricket world records put great pressure on the players. The pressure can affect their form of playing. After making a record, they have to live-up to the expectations of the viewers. If they fail, the entire empire established by them will collapse. It is because making a position is very easy, but maintaining it is a tough task. Every player has to be careful about his cricket world record, as they can be broken by another player. This can be a great setback in their popularity.

Cricket world record can be made in the field of batting, bowling, wicketkeeping, and so on. Apart from this, cricket world records can be classified into test records and ODI records. The test matches are played for 5 days and the average is judged on the basis of their overall performance. Sachin Tendulkar is famous for holding the cricket world record of scoring maximum number of centuries in ODIs and test matches.

As compared to the test matches, ODIs are viewed with much greater interest. It is because many viewers like quick decisions and hate to wait for 5 long days to see the final results. Such viewers like to see the "making and breaking" of the cricket world record in just one go. Cricket world records in these tournaments are remembered more. But this does not mean that test match records do not carry importance. The basic difference is that, it is the matter of choice and liking for a particular way of playing.

Cricket world records are a sheet of the achievements of various players. It is according to their record that they are valued. Be it bowling or batting, cricket world records are cherished forever. If we look at the bowling side, Wasim Akram holds the record for taking highest wickets in the test matches. On the other hand, Shane Warne holds the record for taking highest wickets in ODIs. Cricket world records are not just restricted to individuals, but are also made by teams. Such records are a collective effort of the team, which puts them on the world ranking chart.
