On this day in 1990, England’s Graham Gooch joined the 300 club versus India at Lord’s.
England’s opening batsman and captain struck 333 of 628, in the first innings of the first Test of the series’. This included 43 fours and three sixes.
He still had plenty in the tank however, smashing a second innings hundred too, with 123 off 150 balls. In total his 456 runs in the match helped England to a 247 run victory.
This remains a Test record for the most Test runs in a single match
