Lara picks two Indian batsmen who can go past 400*
Records are meant to be broken and former West Indies batsman Brian Lara’s unbeaten 400 hasn’t been broken yet. In fact, it has been the highest individual Test score for a long time. Lara achieved the landmark against England in 2004 and since then no batsman has ever come close to beating this record as the record remained undisturbed for last 15 years and it also appears that the record would remain unbeatable for a few more years.
Recently, Australian opener David Warner showcased his mettle on the field against Pakistan as he went on to score a massive 335 at the Adelaide Oval. He was en route to scripting history in Tests but the Aussie skipper Tim Paine called off the innings, leaving dashing opener Warner 65 runs short of Lara’s record.
Meanwhile, Brian Lara has picked two Indian batsmen who can break his own record. The former West Indies captain recently in an interview with Reuters feels that Rohit Sharma and young Prithvi Shaw can rewrite history with the bat in the times to come.
“A guy like Rohit Sharma who you know you wonder if he’s still a test cricketer or not,” he told the news agency in an interview.
Rohit Sharma had just started to open the innings for India and he notched up his maiden double hundred in Test against South Africa.
“If he gets going on a good day, on his day, on a good pitch, right situation he can do it,” Lara added.
Talking about the talented Prithvi Shaw, the Windies legend said, “It will need an attacking option. I know he’s fell off the radar a little bit, Prithvi Shaw was one of those attacking options. Hey, here’s a 19-year-old who has the world in front of him, hopefully, he can come back soon.”
