In Test cricket, batsmen have plenty of time to score runs, as there is no restriction of overs. So batsmen make very big scores in Test cricket. If we talk about the biggest innings in Test cricket history, then this record is in the name of former West Indies captain Brian Lara.
Lara scored an unbeaten 400 off 582 balls against England on 10 April 2004. He hit 43 fours and 4 sixes during his innings. Since then, no batsman has been able to score 400 runs in an innings. However, currently, there are some batsmen who can do this feat. Let’s know which batsmen he is.
Rohit Sharma is now opening in Test cricket. He was also very successful against South Africa while opening. He is an explosive opener batsman of the Indian team and it can worsen the bowling attack of any team if it is his day.
Rohit Sharma is the only player in the world who has scored 3 double centuries in ODI cricket. He likes to play big innings. He has also scored big centuries in Test cricket. He is capable enough to break Brian Lara’s record of 400 runs if he plays 4-5 seasons in a single Test inning.
He has also played an innings of 264 runs in 50-over cricket. When he can score so many runs in 50-over cricket, he certainly has the ability to score 400 runs in Test cricket as well.
Australian opener David Warner may not have done anything special in the 2019 Ashes series, but his batting is well known to the whole world.
He is an aggressive opener batsman who likes to dominate the bowlers. He has played many innings in his Test career. His best score in Test cricket is 253 runs. He is also a suitable batsman to break Brian Lara’s record of 400 runs.
Virat Kohli’s recent performance has also been amazing. He is scoring centuries in ODIs and Test cricket. Virat has scored 43 centuries in ODI cricket and 26 in Test cricket.
He has also scored 7 double centuries in Test cricket with his bat. He plays Test cricket with an aggressive approach. If he breaks this record of 400 runs of Brian Lara, it will not be surprising.
