West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara has achieved the remarkable feat of scoring more than 400 runs in a single Test innings. The former great achieved this extraordinary milestone against England in 2004.

Lara also holds the world record for the highest individual score in first-class cricket. He scored an unbeaten 501 runs during a County Championship match for Warwickshire against Durham in 1994.

However, records are meant to be broken. There are always individuals who rise to the challenge. Moreover, Lara himself believes that his world record can be surpassed. The legendry West Indies batter also identified the batsman who he believes has the best chance of achieving this remarkable feat.

In a recent interview, Lara expressed his belief in the immense potential of India’s promising batter Shubman Gill. He stated that Gill has the capability to surpass the remarkable feat of scoring more than 400 runs in a single Test innings.

“Promising Indian batter Shubman Gill can break both my records. Gill is the most talented batter in this new generation. He will rule cricket in the coming years. I believe he will go on to break many big records including mine,” said Lara.

Notably, Gill is the youngest Indian cricketer to score a century in all formats of the game. He is also the record holder for the youngest ODI double hundred.
