In 2004, West Indies batsman Brian Lara wrote history, the one that has not been broken even after 16 long years!
The cricket legend claimed the record for the highest individual score in Test matches. In the long format game against England, Lara broke the shackles and reminded the world of his brilliance when he returned to form with an unbeaten 400 to draw the match.
With 400 runs under his hood, Lara was not out and his absolutely brilliant unbeaten score included 43 boundaries and four out of the stadium sixers. This world record is not touched by any batsman till date, making Lara one of the best in the world of cricket. An individual performance to be remembered with passing time and a mark set that remains standing till date!
By standing on the pitch for around 13 hours, Lara scored 400 while facing 582 deliveries. He played with a strike rate of 68.72 and etched his name in the history of cricket. On the same day in 2004, he shared an unbroken 282 runs partnership for the sixth day.
A day to be remembered!
