Unique Asian Cup Records: There are only 12 days left until the start of the Asia Cup 2022. In this tournament to be held in the United Arab Emirates, this time too many new records will be set and many new stars will come out and you will also see some records being broken. It has been 9 years since Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket. He is the Indian batsman with the most runs in the Asian Cup with 971 runs. Rohit Sharma has scored 883 runs in the Asian Cup and is only 88 runs behind him. Meaning, this time Hitman can outrun the Master Blaster. Irfan Pathan is the tallest wicket-taker in the Asian Cup. He took 22 career wickets from him and Ravindra Jadeja also has the same number of wickets in the Asian Cup. That is, after taking a wicket, Jadeja will become India’s most successful bowler in the Asian Cup. But there are some records that are not going to be easy to break.

Sehwag went 4 for 6 in 2.5 overs against Bangladesh in the 2010 Asian Cup. That is, he took a wicket after every 4.2 balls. This is the best strike rate by a bowler in an Asian Cup innings.

Virat Kohli

The record for playing the biggest innings in the Asian Cup is held by Virat Kohli, who played a brilliant innings of 183 runs on 148 balls against Pakistan in 2012, which included 1 six with 22 fours. The chances of breaking this record in the next edition to be held in T20 format are slim.

Arshad Ayub

Arshad Ayub is the only Indian bowler to take 5 wickets in one innings in the Asian Cup. This Indian spinner took 5 wickets for 21 runs against Pakistan in the 1988 Asian Cup. The 2022 Asian Cup is organized in T20 format. The chances of a bowler taking a five-wicket haul in the game’s shortest format are extremely slim.
