As on October 2019; there are 12 test playing nations in the world. Ireland is the 12th test match playing nation which got this status on 11 May 2018 while Afghanistan was the 11th country which got test status on 14 June 2018.

Out of 12 test playing nations only 8 have scored a triple century in test matches while no player from Ireland, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe has ever scored 300 runs.

Brian Lara and Chris Gayle (West Indies), Donald Bradman (Australia) and Virender Sehwag (India) are the only batsmen to scored 300 plus score more than once in the test matches.

The highest score (400) in the test match is scored by the great Brian Lara. Lara is also the only player who had scored 350 plus two times.
