BrandTags Express Edition #17 :: Hashim Amla and Cricket Stats

A few minutes while I was thinking of what should go next in the blog, I came across the news on Hashim Amla who became the first South African cricketer to score a triple hundred. This is quite an illustrious feat by the South African who has been touted as a captain for quite sometime.

Amla surpassed the score set by AB D Villiers' of 278 while achieving this feat. The most interesting stat is that the triple century in England has come after more than 22 years when Graham Gooch hit 333 against India at Lords.

The Highest Test score is held by veteran Brian Lara who has a magical figure of 400 followed by Hayden and again followed by Lara. Virender Sehwag is the only Indian in the list who features twice with scores of 319 and 309.
