NorthEast’s innings is the fourth score of more than 400 runs in an English county match after Lara’s innings.
Leicester (England): Sam NorthEast joined the elite group of cricketers to score over 400 runs in an innings after scoring an unbeaten 410 for Glamorgan in an English County Championship match on Saturday.
However, NorthEast did not get a chance to challenge Brian Lara’s individual world record of 501 with Glamorgan’s declaration of 795 for five against Leicestershire, which the West Indies star scored at Warwickshire in an English county match in 1994. Made while playing.
NorthEast faced 450 balls during his innings which included 45 fours and three sixes.
This is the highest individual score of this century in elite level cricket. The 32-year-old fell short of Brian Lara’s Test record of 400 for the West Indies against England in 2004.
His innings ranks ninth in the all-time highest score. Only eight players have previously scored 400 or more runs in first-class cricket. Like Lara, Australian batsman Bill Ponsford had crossed the 400-run mark on two occasions. NorthEast’s innings is the fourth score of more than 400 runs in an English county match after Lara’s innings.
Archie McLaren (424 runs) did this feat in 1895 and Graeme Hick (405 runs) in 1988.
