Most wickets by a bowler in a Test match: Jim Laker

Laker who was the first bowler to take all 10 wickets in an innings in international cricket in the second innings of the same Test had sent nine Australian batsmen back to the pavilion in the first essay too in that encounter at Old Trafford. Laker’s heroics made sure that the Englishmen completed an innings and 170-run triumph, and hence retained the Ashes
Batsman dismissed in nineties on maximum occasions in ODIs: Sachin Tendulkar

His highest score in an innings was a poor 30* and his batting average was a miserable 7.54

Most catches taken by a fielder in a Test match: Ajinkya Rahane

Youngest player to play an ODI: Hasan Raza
Can you believe, Raza played his first one day international at the age of 14 years and 233 days when he made his debut for Pakistan against Zimbabwe in 1996. Surprisingly, Sachin Tendulkar doesn’t feature in the top-5 as Gurdeep Singh of Kenya, Nitish Kumar of Canada and Raza’s teammates Aaqib Javed and Shahid Afridi are the other men on the list.
No ducks made by a batsman in ODI career: Kepler Wessels

Most sixes struck by a batsman in a Test innings: Imran Khan
The former Pakistan skipper has the distinction of hitting the most number of sixes in a Test innings. Imran’s knock brought the curtains down on Wally Hammond’s long standing record of 12 sixes that he had managed to strike during his classic innings of 257 (336)not out in 1992–93. The southpaw was extremely severe against the spinners, Paul Strang and Andrew Whittall as he hoicked the ball straight out of the ground whenever they pitched the ball up or gave a bit more air.
