Why didn't Clarke carry on? He could have had the world record there and then some...be nice to get the worlds highest ever score off the records seeing as it's against us
We can’t have the Aussies holding records though, that’s why we had to let Lara claim it back after Hayden had snatched it away. I know that tightly fought lower scoring Tests are more entertaining but there’s something great about just looking at a scorecard like that! Fantastic effort from Clarke, and probably a sensible boost for his average to make sure he declared not out! Even taking away his mere 329 runs they still racked up a very impressive 330-4. Credit where it’s due. I was gutted when Cook was out for 290 odd in the summer, triple centuries don’t come about that often (unless you’re Bradman or Sehwag!)…how many have been scored in Test cricket Stats Dan?
Not looking good for the Lankans – 220-8, still 360 behind.
