2. Jason Gillespie
It is unbelievable that a genuine bowler could ever get to score a double-century and that on his birthday, which was also his last Test match. Yes, it was achieved by none other than the Australian pacer, Jason Gillespie on his 31st birthday. Australia were playing against Bangladesh in 2006 when Gillespie came to bat at No.3 as a night-watchman.
Then he scored a brilliant unbeaten 201 in the first innings to provide his team with a lead of 384 runs and perhaps this will go down as one of the best swansongs. Gillespie batted for 425 deliveries and 574 minutes hitting two sixes and 26 boundaries.
14 years and running, the record is still not broken.
