Test Cricket: 5-day Test cricket is well known for the patience of batsmen, but on some occasions, we get the form of T20 in batsmen also in Test cricket.
Test match is a form of cricket where we get to see all kinds of cricket by batsmen. Test cricket tests all your techniques as a batsman. Test cricket is for those players who are technically competent. Here, as a batsman, you should be fully aware of how to proceed with restraint in the most difficult situations.
However, even in Test cricket, once the batsmen stick to the crease or when the conditions are consistent with playing big shots, the batsmen do not hesitate at all and go behind a weak bowler to score runs.
Keeping this in mind, today we are going to tell you about three batsmen who have scored the most runs in an over in Test cricket.
When it comes to some of the greatest batsmen of Test cricket, Brian Lara’s name is always taken. His 400-run innings against England in 2004 is the highest score by a player in Test cricket to date.
On 14 December 2003 against South Africa in Johannesburg, West Indies legend Brian Lara scored 28 runs in an over in the last over of the day, bowling left-arm spinner Robin Peterson, and over by any batsman in Test cricket. It is the highest score.
George Bailey, who played his third Test match in international cricket, scored 28 runs in 2013 in one over from Anderson, the world’s best fast bowler.
Before the last over of Australia’s second innings, Bailey had scored 11 runs in 24 balls and the time had come to declare the innings. After this, Bailey added 28 runs in Anderson’s over with the help of 3 sixes and 2 fours and Australia won the third Test match by 150 runs.
South African spinner Keshav Maharaj is well known for his spin bowling, but on the final day of the third Test match between South Africa and England, Maharaj scored 3 fours and 2 sixes in his one over with the help of England captain Root for 28 runs. Rooted a new record.
Although South Africa lost the match, Maharaj registered his name in the list of records of most runs scored in an over in Test cricket.
Despite giving 28 runs in an over, Joe Root was the most successful bowler in the England team who took four wickets in the second innings of South Africa.
The root is not able to do anything special with batting at this time and in such a situation he will be very happy with his performance with bowling.
