Virender Sehwag, who scored a triple century in Multan against Pakistan, mentioned the record of Brian Lara in the meeting of his special show Veeru. Veeru revealed which are the players who can break Brian’s 16 year old record. Significantly, the record for scoring the most runs in an innings of a Test is in the name of the legendary Brian Lara of the West Indies.
Veeru told the names of two players
Former India explosive opener Virendra Sehwag believes that only two batsmen have the strength to break this record and that is Rohit Sharma of India and David Warner of Australia. Sehwag believes that these are the players who can smash this great record.
What did sehwag say
Recently, Virender Sehwag has started a show called Veeru’s meeting. Referring to Lara’s record on social media on her special show Veeru, Sehwag said, “If anyone can break this record of Lara, it is David Warner and Rohit Sharma.” If Rohit Sharma has one and a half days according to them and they happen, then they can break these records.
Rohit and Warner’s record
If you look at the figures, Rohit Sharma does not have such a good test record. He has scored the highest 212 runs in an innings so far in Tests. But Rohit has scored three double centuries in ODIs. On the other hand, if we talk about Virender Sehwag himself, this batsman has scored a triple century twice in Test history.
Why couldn’t Lara’s record break herself?
Sehwag said about himself that he lived in a hurry. Therefore, he could never break this record. Sehwag said that his fate was not to break Lara’s record as he lived in a hurry. Sehwag had scored two triple centuries in the Test. He scored 309 runs in Multan against Pakistan and 319 against South Africa.
