1. 400* WI vs. ENG, 2004
In April 2004, Brian Lara set the highest individual score of 400 not out in the history of International cricket in 4th test against England at St. John’s. Please note the ‘not out’.
He faced 582 deliveries which included 43 fours and 4 sixes. Before getting to 400, Lara was dropped at 359 by debutant wicketkeeper Geraint Jones which appeared to be a nick down the leg side. The match ended in a draw. This is still the highest ever score by an individual in test cricket which seems to be almost unsurpassable.
