Vantage point

Tuesday, April 20, 2004

I completely agree with Ponting.

The only scenario in which I see the record being broken is, if a team bats first, for about 7 sessions, and declares at 650 or so. The second team does not wilt and also puts up a big score.......and the match is a draw anyway. Only then will 400 be challenged. But not many captains will let a first innings scorer playfor so long.

Incidentally both of Lara's triple hundreds have been in matches that were drawn.
