The two titans of modern drama were both cricket obsessives. What if they had faced the fast bowlers together? Playwright Shomit Dutta explains why he made it happen – with darkly comic drama StumpedSamuel Beckett and Harold Pinter had a lot in common. Both changed the way plays are written and perceived, both were Nobel prize winners and both had a passion for cricket.

Fastest ever centuries in Tests, ODIs and T20's

Chris Gayle hit the fastest century in World Twenty20 history as West Indies crushed England by six wickets in Mumbai in 2016. Where does Gayle sit on the list of all time fastest centuries?

South African left hander David Miller blasted a 35 ball century against Bangladesh in 2017 to record the fastest ever T20 international century.

In Test cricket, Brendon McCullum broke the joint record of Viv Richards and Misbah with a 54 ball century against Australia in the 2nd Test in 2016.

AB de Villiers took 31 balls to smash the fastest century in one-day internationals.


Greatest World Cup matches of all time

Since its very inception in 1975, the World Cup has served up many remarkable matches. We have shortlisted the thrillers and upsets to compile a list of the most memorable matches.


Triple century club: Highlights of legendary Test knocks

Ever since England opener Andy Sandham stroked his way to 325 (640 balls, 28 fours) against the West Indies in the 4th Test of 1930 at Sabina Park, it has been a dream for batsman to crown their career by achieving a triple century in test cricket.

Amongst the many greats of the game that did not record a triple are Sachin Tendulkar (Highest score 248 not out), Ricky Ponting (Highest score of 257), Rahul Dravid (Highest score 270) and Allan Border (Highest score 205) – this list comprises 4 of the top 5 run scorers in test cricket, with only Lara making a triple century.

The magical feat of a hat-trick in World Cup cricket

A hat-trick occurs when a bowler dismisses three batsmen with consecutive deliveries. Since the inception of the World Cup in 1975, there have only been 11 hat tricks taken by 10 bowlers.
