I think Sanjay Manjarekar hit a triple century for Bombay (377) about
three years ago. Anyone confirm this?

some one was inquiring whether mansoor akhtar had scored a quadruple century
a few days back. well, he didn't. but he did share a world record opening
partnership of 561 with the bloke above. mansoor got 224*.

plus, i think phil's post-1985 stats are confined to england/australia/SA and
don't include india.
some 300+ scores in india in the past 5-6 years:
raman lamba got 323(?) in the duleep trophy a few years ago.
sanjay majrekar got 377.
there was that strange ranji trophy match a few years ago when both w.v. raman
(312?) and arjan singh (303*) got triple centuries.
any more that anyone can think of? anyone have a copy of Indian Cricket?

I seem to recall the Don squaring a quad for Australia versus Surrey
(Somerset?) the one time Australia made 700-odd in a single day.  Is
my memory fading, am I caught in a time warp, or does that not count
as a first class match?

Also, heartbreakingly,
299* D.G. Bradman (ran out of partners just short of his 3rd triple in Tests)

How anyone can look at these figures and say that the Don is not the
greatest bat of all time, I can't imagine.  His figures dwarf those of
his contemporaries, predecessors, and those who came after him, by
such a high margin, that any comparison between the Don and anyone
else, is ludicrous.

How about Darryl Cullinan 337 for Transvaal vs Northern Transvaal 1993
(believe it or not!) and Terence Lazard 307 Border vs Western Province
1993.

Jimmy Cook scored a triple centry (313?) for Somerset during
one of his three incredibly successful seasons there (1990-92).

 Does anyone have a comprehensive and accurate list of first class
 scores over 300 since 1985?

Ok, Indian Cricket 1992 edition here. (BTW, I'm told that the 1993
edition is not *yet* available. Howzzat?)

Duleep Trophy:

Player              Score   for vs   Year
Lamba, Raman        320     NZ  WZ  1987-88

In the Ranji Trophy:
Manjrekar, Sanjay   377  for Bombay vs Hyderabad at Bombay, 1990-91
Raman, Woorkeri     313  for TamilNadu vs Goa at Panjim, 1988-89
Azeem, Abdul        303* for Hyderabad vs TamilNadu at Hyderabad, 1986-87
Arjan Kripal Singh  302* for TamilNadu vs Goa at Panjim, 1988-89

(near misses)

Sugwekar, Shantanu  299* for Maharashtra vs MadhyaPradesh at Pune, 1988-89
Gurusharan Singh    298* for Punjab vs Bengal at Calcutta, 1988-89

Since 1992, at least one HUGE score has been added to this list. M.V.
Sridhar scored 366 for Hyderabad vs Andhra Pradesh in the 1993-94
season (at Hyderabad?).

The 1988-89 season seems to have been even more of a batsman's season
than usual :-) Apart from the four scores above, Surendra Bhave scored
274 against Bombay, W.V.Raman got another 238 against Bengal and 200 vs
Maharashtra, Manoj Prabhakar got a 229* against HimachalPradesh, Amre
got 214* against Vidarbha (he was still playing for Railways at that
time), Ashok Malhotra and S. Phadkar (Vidarbha) also got double
tons..... all in the Ranji Trophy... amazing!

 If you mean the time Australia made 721 against Essex in 48 then
the Don even failed to make a double he only made 187, Bill Brown,
Sam Loxton and Ron Saggers all made centuries whilst Syd Barnes chipped
in along with a few others. The tail failed and legend has it Miller
allowed the ball to hit the stumps on his first delivery such was the
carnage.
