8. A) Brendon McCullum. A lot of you might have chosen Misbah as the answer for this, but Brendon McCullum broke his record in 2016 against Australia, with a century in just 54 balls!

9. B) Rashid Khan – Shocking right? The Afghan spinner has earned a world-class reputation because of a lot of reasons, and this is certainly one of them. Although he has played just 71 ODIs, he has a bowling average of 18.54. Incredible! Let’s see how good of an average he has by the end of his career.

10. B) Yorkshire – Although they last won in 2015, Yorkshire is the most celebrated County Championship team with a staggering 33 titles to their name.
