Brilliant 400 not out by Brian Lara

The former captain of west indies Brian Lara set the highest score ever in Test cricket by hitting 400 not out in the fourth Test against England.Brian Lara passed the previous best of 380 by Matthew Hayden and then declared after reaching the quadruple century. The Trinidadian left-hander faced 582 deliveries, hitting 43 fours and four sixes, setting a new mark just over two hours into the third day in Antigua. West Indies 751-5 dec. drew with England 285 & 422-5. The feat came on the same ground where he hit a then record 375, also against England, in 1994.

He also holds the record for the highest first-class score, 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham in the English county Cricket Championship.

Brian Lara become the fourth player in Test cricket history to score 10,000 runs during the Windies' second innings on the fourth day of the third Test at Old Trafford vs. England (2004)
