Samit Gohel became the fourth triple centurion and the first in 81 years in first class cricket history.
Gujarat's Samit Gohel slammed an unbeaten 359 and created a world record for the highest score by an opener to carry his bat through in first class cricket in his team's Ranji Trophy quarter final against Odisha.
Gohel's runs came off 723 balls and the knock was studded with 45 fours and a six. Karun Nair was the last Indian batsman to score a first class triple hundred in fifth test against England.
Gohel now happens to be the fourth triple centurion in first class cricket history to carry his bat through the innings. The last such instance was 81 years ago.
