Brian Lara Celebrates The Anniversary Of Achieving The Highest Score

Article top

On this day in 1994, two months after making a world record 375 against England, the then highest test scorer, Brian Lara went on to score the highest first-class score, picking up an unbeaten incredible 501 runs against Durham while playing in the County Championship for Warwickshire. He spent 474 minutes at the batting crease, played 417 balls, hit 62 fours and 10 sixes, en route the feat that stands tall till today, justifying a batting legend’s grandeur. Not to forget, Lara smashed 174 runs alone on the last day of the match, in just one session.
