110 = number of innings taken by Kane Williamson to reach 5000 runs, the fewest by a New Zealander.
17 = number of centuries scored by Kane Williamson, the joint most by a New Zealander (with Martin Crowe).

Both records occurred in the same innings in Hamilton 2017.

120 = wickets to fall in the India-South Africa series, the only time all 120 have fallen in a three test series.

Presumably not, but in every other instance there must have been either a declaration or an innings victory.

Most successful domestic teams in cricket history:

Wins - Team name - Tournament

46 - New South Wales - Sheffield Shield / Pura Cup
41 - Mumbai - Ranji Trophy
33 - Yorkshire - County Championships
31 - Victoria - Sheffield Shield
29 - Transvaal / Gauteng / Lions / - Sunfoil Series / Currie Cup


Percentage wise think Mumbai are topping because more number of Sheffield Seasons and County Championships tournaments were probably played than Ranji Trophy. :?:
2018 - 2019 Ranji Trophy is the 85th edition.

yep, SS has been going around 130 years.

On top of the though, Adi, there is the number of teams in the comp (the more there is, logically the harder winning it multiple times is). Only 6 in the Shield. I see the Ranji (currently) has 37....

Yes, the more the teams the tougher it should be to win. Mumbai won it back to back 15 times at one point of time. Not winning this year though.
