4200 wickets in a career, 628 runs in an innings, and some other well-known ones.

40,000 RUNS AND 4000 WICKETS: If you thought Kapil Dev’s 5000-odd runs and 400-odd wickets were impressive you need to
see Wilfred Rhodes’ numbers. In a career that spanned over three decades, the English right-hand bat and left-arm spinner scored 39,969 runs and took 4204 wickets. He is the record-holder for wickets in First Class cricket, well clear of Kent leg-spinner Tich Freeman who is in second position with 3776.
