19-DEC-2016 17:48

    This list of Test cricket triple centuries shows all instances where a batsman has scored 300 runs or more in a single innings in Test cricket, a feat achieved on 30 occasions by 26 different batsmen from eight of the ten Test-cricket playing nations. No player from Bangladesh or Zimbabwe has ever scored 300.

    The first Test triple century was achieved by Andy Sandham of England against West Indies in 1930 in the first Test series hosted in the West Indies. The most recent (as of December 19, 2016) Test triple century was scored by Karun Nair of India against England in December 2016.
