Virender Sehwag & Chris Gayle are the only two players to score a 200 in ODIs and a 300 in Test Cricket (both managed two 300s in Tests!)

Virender Sehwag is the only batsman to have scored over 7500 runs in both formats - Tests (8207 runs) and ODIs (7418 runs) AS AN OPENER!

123 = Innings taken by Hashim Amla to get to 6000 ODI runs, the fastest ever. He's 13 innings better than Virat Kohli's 136

younus khan has only averaged less than 50 in a calender year once since 2004

he has the second best test match to hundred ratio after bradman with a hundred every 3.3 tests

in asia it is a hundred every 2.7 tests

averages 50+ at home/away and neutral venues

possibly the most underrated batsmen of this generation, his stats are as good if not better than tendulkar and dravid, his average of 54.4 is also on the way up

Australia and New Zealand have never faced each other at the World T20 (they will, this time around).

New Zealand have never lost to India in a T20I.


Can anyone confirm if there are any more combinations amongst the top 8 sides with these stats?
