    The record could be held by an individual or a team. For example Victoria still holds the highest ever first innings total record and it is just over 8 decades old and Victoria (this Victoria) is not an individual

    You just said YES to my question...

    Is it the record number of runs scored while a batsman was at the crease ?

    Then it has to be Ponsford and he WAS playing for Victoria in that game !

    When the answer to this becomes clear you can understand why the answer was yes !! Record number of runs scored while a batsman was at the crease can mean many things !!
