Only the 2nd Indian to reach this landmark
Karun Nair become only the second Indian to join the 300 club. Amazingly it was his only third game.He made a reputation in domestic cricket as one of the most promising. Now he have already shown the glimpses of fulfilling it.
In the history books along side Sehwag and Sobers
It is no easy task to register your name beside the likes of Sehwag, Gary Sobers. This is a feat which hasn’t been achieved even by the little master who played 200 tests.
His place is not secure yet
He came as a replacement batsmen for injured Ajinkya Rahane. Nair has managed to capitalise in this opportunity. Even scoring a triple century may not guarantee his place in the team with the likes of Rohit Sharma and Rahane competing for the place. He will have to prove his talent outside India as well to secure his place in the team. However, it is safe to say he will receive more chances in near future.
How he made 300?
His innings today consisted of 32 fours and 4 sixes. He was dominant through and stayed unbeaten at 303.
