ON THIS DAY: Graeme Smith’s 277

ON THIS DAY South Africa’s young captain bludgeoned 277 during the first Test between England and South Africa at Edgbaston 2003.

After a string of poor performances, Smith struck the mammoth double-century with fellow opener Herschel Gibbs also hitting a big hundred. 

Unfortunately for the proteas, England managed to rack up a similarly large score, and the Test petered out to a draw.
