Forgotten Scores in An Unforgettable Test Match at Lahore, 1-2 March 2009

October 31, 2017

From ESPNcricnfo

Did you know that Murali scored 22 runs in 16 balls at a rate of 137.50?

Mind you this was because Sangakkara, Samaraweera and Dilshan had set up a platform over most of two days by scoring 104, 214 and 145 respectively !

So: Sri Lanka built up a first innings total of 604 runs after being sent in …. and perhaps established another record in having two centurions run themselves out in the same innings!

Samaraweera batting …. and injured by shrapnel in ambulance
