    He moved to
    the second place in the list of batsmen with most half centuries in ODIs. Sachin
    Tendulkar occupies the first place with 95. Kallis overtook R Dravid and
    Inzamam-ul-Haq.

  • Captain’s hundred in a losing cause

    Zimbabwe
    captain - BRM Taylor scored a hundred - 107 not out against New Zealand in the
    second One-day game at Harare on 22.10.11 - only to see that it did not fetch a
    win for his team. His hundred provides the 44th hundred in One-day
    games of a captain's hundred in a losing cause.

     

    BRM Taylor has witnessed three
    hundreds in vain as a captain in One-day games. He is the second captain after
    CH Gayle of West Indies to witness three
    hundreds in a losing cause. Thus BRM Taylor and CH Gayle share this dubious
    distinction of most hundreds by captains going in vain in One day games.

     

    The
    following is the list of captains who have witnessed hundreds in a losing cause
    on two or more occasions:

  • Sangakkara Scores Record Double Hundred

     

    Kumar Sangakkara's innings of 211 in Abu Dhabi is his eighth
    Test double hundred, moving him past England great Wally Hammond, who had
    seven.

     

    Sangakkara trails only Don Bradman, who made 12 scores
    of 200 or more - in just 52 Tests - and Brian Lara, who had nine. Both those
    batsmen had two triple hundreds, while Sangakkara's highest is 287.

  • 300s in ODIs: India Break Australia’s Record

     

    It took India nearly 22 years of playing ODI
    cricket to cross 300 for the
    first time in a match
    and they were the last major cricket team to reach
    that score. Even Zimbabwe had achieved the feat many years
    earlier.

     

    But once there, India have now made scores of 300
    or more, more times than any other team.

     

    The Mohali ODI provided the 65th such instance,
    and India have now overtaken Australia at 64.

     

    Here's a list of ODI teams
    that have crossed 300 in an ODI at least once.
