West Indian legend Brian Lara believes that it is not impossible for players of the current generation to break the record for the highest Test score of 400 set by him. In fact, he even named a few players who, he feels, are capable of breaking the barrier.
Allaying all criticism about not being good at batting first, India put up a sensational display after being sent in, to claim the T20I series against West Indies 2-1. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli all smashed blazing half-centuries to bring the crowd at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai to its feet.
Wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson has been named as replacement for injured Shikhar Dhawan in the T20I squad that will take on West Indies in a three-match series. Dhawan ended up getting a deep cut on his left knee during a Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match against Maharashtra, BCCI informed. After assessing the left-hander’s condition, BCCI’s medical team concluded that Dhawan would not be fit for the T20Is, as the injury would take time to heal.
