Know who made the triple centuries in Test cricket history

Test cricket is said to be the most difficult and challenging format. In this format, scoring a century is also a very big thing and turning that century into a big inning, it is even more difficult to score a double century. So far, Sir Don Bradman has scored the most 12 double centuries.

However, there have been some players who converted double centuries into triple centuries. So far, 27 players have scored triple centuries in the history of Test cricket.

Meanwhile, 31 triple centuries have been scored in Test cricket. Sir Don Bradman, Virender Sehwag, Chris Gayle, and Brian Lara have scored the most 2-2 triple centuries.
