Economy Rate 0.3 in ODI by Phil Simmon’s
Now the cricket is becoming very fast, every batsman is a good hitter of ball. If a bowler is bowling ten overs in a match and he just gave 4 runs per over, total runs given by him will be 40 and the economy rate will be 0.4. But in 1992 against Pakistan, West Indies bowler Phil Simmon’s gave just 3 runs per over and the economy rate was 0.3 runs per over. ODI is becoming much more attack minded, every batsman is trying to attack on the every ball of the over. Phill Simmon was a batsman, he was not a bowler and he showed a good bowling figure is this match which gave him more confident.
T-20 Hundred off 30 balls by Chris Gayle’s
In the early days of Twenty20 cricket, in 2004 the Australian player Andrew Symonds scored hundred runs on just 34 balls for an English county team. That was also not broken before the IPL of 2013, in this tournament. Chris Gayle was playing for Royle Challenger Banglore (RCB), he scored 175 runs off just 65 balls. He scored hundred off 30 balls, it was the fastest hundred in the cricket history. He also beat the record of Brendon McCullum’s T20 high score 158 and not out. 200 runs by a single player in t20 matches looks achieveable but hundred on 30 balls? It was purely astonishing.
