Apart from a little cameo towards the end of the innings, nothing much is expected from bowlers when it comes to batting. However, the game has witnessed quite a few bowlers who kept a price on their wicket and some of them  even went on to make a few world records with their willow.

Here we are having a look at some bowlers who hold startling batting records:

5. Ashton Agar (Australia):

Playing his debut Test match, a 19-year old Ashton Agar surprised everyone by playing one of the finest innings by a bowler. What makes the innings even more special is the fact that it came against their arch rivals England, during the 2013 Ashes series. Coming in to bat at number eleven, the left-handed batsman went into record books by scoring 98 runs- the highest score by a number 11 batsman. When he came to bat, Australia were reeling at 117 for 9 but a 163 runs partnership with Phillip Hughes saw them scoring 280.The incredible knock came off just 101 deliveries and was studded with 12 fours and 2 maximums.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
