    Who will break Brian Lara's record for the highest score (400) in Tests?

    I had a dream last night that Khurram Manzoor broke Brian Lara's test record of 400! Who is the most likely batsman to break it, if any? I can't think of anyone at present.

    What a dream Khurram Manzor breaking Lara's record!

    Didn't Gavaskar say Virat Kohli will score a 400 in tests for sure!

    TBH the way Warner plays if he gets a juicy flat track, some poor bowling, and plays long he sure has a chance.

    I doubt anyone can, but if I had to choose one player, it would be a guy who ironically isn't even a regular in his side's Test team.

    Question should be whether teams/captains want to do it because 400 itself remains a hated knock, it broke the West Indies internally. Ridley Jacobs partnered Lara during that 400 and he himself hates Lara for being selfish enough to pursue this personal milestone at the expense of WI batting 2 and a half days.

    Over the years, quite a few double/triple centurions seemed set to go on forever but either sacrificed their wicket for quick runs or were victims to sporting declarations from their captains.

    true but he plays on increasingly flat decks in Aus. It's not likely but I believe if anyone will do it he will.

    Can't see it being someone from England, Australia, South Africa or New Zealand. Not because their batsmen lack the ability but because a captain from these sides won't allow a batsman to bat so long - they'll be accused of putting personal milestones above that of the team if they do.

    If it is broken it will probably be an Asian batsman who does it, not sure who though.

    I dunno if anyone can play that long these days but on a flat enough track, against average neough bowling, I think Smith is probably the most likely. Possibly Root, and then Kohli third.

    I always felt Amla had the patience, skill and class to play such an innings and that 311 was special. People tend to forget it because there was 3 other centuries but his innings ground England to dust, against a peak Anderson, Broad and Swann. Oneo f the best innings I've seen live.

    None because no captain will allow a batsman to break this useless record. Warner might have a slight chance though and that too only due to his crazy SR in Australia.

    lol, he is known for not converting his fifties into 100s, let alone scoring 400.

    On a serious note, he's still young, and his best is yet to come so it's possible.

    Honestly the only ones capable are probably David Warner and Steve Smith, maybe a healthy and willing AB de Villiers. Never gonna happen though

    an aggressive opener is the best bet. The captains will declare after the teams get to a good total, but an aggressive opener can score quickly while his partner hold up the other end and just keep giving him the strike to score the bulk of the runs. Some of Warner's 100s have been scored in that scenario. So he's the best bet.
    Another one to look forward to is De Kock, SA will make him open in tests too hopefully. He can score big with a very good strike rate, he will be a great batsman and potentially can break this record.

    Another scenario is that, if a team scores some 600 runs batting first, then the top order batsmen of team batting second might have a shot at getting that record because they'll be looking to get a lead of at least 50 to 100 runs, so 400 outta 650-700 can be scored by some world class batsmen.
    From Pakistan I think Azhar is an obvious one who has the ability to do that. If Babar develops his temperament for test cricket, which I'm sure he will, he can have a shot in similar situation as well.

    Not a chance.

    He's got a dodgy back so batting for that long will cause him problems.

    If a team really has no desire to win the match and they have a selfish batsman out in the middle then perhaps the record would be broken. Otherwise most teams keep team objectives above personal milestones.

    Windies were already a **** side at the time of Lara 400, so they had no hope of beating England in that particular match at least.

    If Ireland gets Test status, a lot of blokes will have a shot at breaking 400.

    But that would still be a pretty big achievement. Scoring 400 even against Japan would not be easy due to fatigue alone.

    Quite possible in the 2nd innings.

    Suppose a team batting first scores 600+ then the team batting 2nd has no chance of winning the game but can take its time to score big and one of its batsman may eye the record.

    YK had a good chance in the 1st Test against Sl in 2009 when he made 313 - SL made 650+ in the first innings so it was never a matter of being "selfish" since we were not gonna win that match anyway.

    West Indies batted first in the match. Didn't Lara, being the captain, declare till after lunch on the 3rd day of play?

    Don't think it will ever be broken but the batsmen most likely to break it are Smith,Azhar and Warner in Aus.
