Andy Sandham’s 325 vs West Indies- The first one is always very special, and Andy Sandham became the first ever to reach the landmark of 300 way back in 1930. At the age of 39 years and 275 days, Sandham is the oldest to score a Test triple ton. England is where Cricket originated and it would have been a delight for them to see an Englishman become the first to reach there.

Don Bradman’s 334 vs England- Bradman is one of the biggest names to emerge in this game, and a triple century from his bat becomes special. He became only the second player to get there just a few months after the first triple century. In a score like this, a few sixes would be expected, but that was not the case here, Bradman has only 6 sixes in his entire career.

Hanif Mohammad Triple Century

What makes this innings special is that for the first time a non-English or a non-Australian player scored a triple hundred. There were five triple hundreds before this.
