Cricket's 300 Men and One 400 Man
It is the ultimate in cricket - to score a Test innings of 300. And Brian Lara has now pushed that on to 400. The story of these epic innings has never been gathered into a book before – and some of the innings are barely known. Until now.
Christopher Hilton, who has been a cricket lover all his life, re-creates each innings in great depth, setting them into their context and letting all the intrinsic drama unfold using original source material, much of which has lain unseen for decades.
Here, striding to the crease again are the great ones: Wally Hammond, Don Bradman – only he and Lara have ever scored 300 twice – through Len Hutton and Garfield Sobers all the way to Matthew Hayden and Virender Sehwag in our own time.
The book has a full scorecard of each innings and is lavishly illustrated.
