    Highest Test Score

    It has come to my attention that none of the supposed record breaking test scores in recent years have been valid, for one reason or the other all of the recent test scores have come about through innings that should have been decalerd void and discounted.

    Through careful analysis i have discovered that the highest test score that is legitimate was actually the 317 set in the 4th test of england vs australia in 1964 by RB Simpson.
    All other innings are void and cannot possibly be allowed to be known as the highest test score ever. I will list these cases in order.

    1. Brian lara 400 not out - umpire did not notice an edge that was caught and appealed by geraint jones on 2, not to mention the fact that the pitch was far to flat and the match was virtually a farce.

    2. Matthew Hayden 380 - this score came up on another farcially flat pitch against an awful side that should have been stripped of test match status, this should therefore discount the score.

    3. Brian Lara 375 - another example of a pitch being ridiculously good, not to mention the fact that englands bowling was so poor it should have been declared illegal,

    4. Gary Sobers 365 - the fact that this score was brought up over a period of 2 years should mean that it was declared invalid and void, should have been counted as 2 seperate scores.

    5. Len Hutton 364 - tyhis score was racked up just prior to WW2 therefore all the bowlers wuld have been fearing foreign invasion and therefore would not have concentrated on bowling, therefore had they been concentrating the likely events woulde have been hutton dismissed for 3. Void score.

    6. Saneth Jayasuria 340- A bowler trying to be a batsman not a real player. void score

    7.Hanif Mohammad 337- Again scored on a stupidly good pitch in a series that should have been declared void

    8.W.R Hamond 336 not out- scored against a very poor new zeland side - Void score

    9.D.G Bradman 334 - A fictional character therefoe this never actualy happened

    10.Taylor 334 not out- retiring as too not pass the score of a fictional character is just patthetic and therefore is void

    11.Gooch 333 - Must have been recieving performance harnsing drugs through his mostache plus the fact that he was out on nelsons is just dodgy the devil must have been at work. Void inings

    12.Inzamam ul Haq 329- Probably run someone out during this inings therefroe forefits his score

    13.Sandham 325- West indies pitch again doenst count

    14.Gayle - Again what a stupid pitch anyone could get a hundred on it a void ininigs

    So that leaves R.b simpsons inigins the true highsest in test cricket

    I think RB Simpson's should be removed as he's clearly Homer's elder borther, and as such is a cartoon, so doesn't exist!

    i think its fairly obvious that most players who got over 200 and everyone who got over 300 did it on a dead flat strip. its simply impossible to score prolifically on a wicket that assists the bowlers, because the bowlers would produce enough wicket taking deliveries that will get you out far before you reach 200.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Certainly not, that match is every bit as unworthy of being called a Test-match as the Hayden 380 one was. New Zealand were quite clearly not a Test-class side in 1965.

    Wrong, Lara most certainly was not caught behind on 2; as has already been pointed-out, all 200+ innings will almost beyond question come on extremely flat pitches.
    2. Matthew Hayden 380 - this score came up on another farcially flat pitch against an awful side that should have been stripped of test match status, this should therefore discount the score.
    It shouldn't discout it, but it should be taken in the context that the team was not Test-class and most certainly did not deserve to be playing cricket classed as Test-matches, so this innings should not be classed as a Test-match innings.
    3. Brian Lara 375 - another example of a pitch being ridiculously good, not to mention the fact that englands bowling was so poor it should have been declared illegal,
    For the pitch see 2nd part of 1. England's bowling certainly wasn't poor given the pitch.
    4. Gary Sobers 365 - the fact that this score was brought up over a period of 2 years should mean that it was declared invalid and void, should have been counted as 2 seperate scores.
    Er... what?
    5. Len Hutton 364 - tyhis score was racked up just prior to WW2 therefore all the bowlers wuld have been fearing foreign invasion and therefore would not have concentrated on bowling, therefore had they been concentrating the likely events woulde have been hutton dismissed for 3. Void score.
    Even though no-one in Australia could possibly fear invasion?
    6. Saneth Jayasuria 340- A bowler trying to be a batsman not a real player. void score
    Err... what?
    7.Hanif Mohammad 337- Again scored on a stupidly good pitch in a series that should have been declared void
    Why should it have been declared void? For bit about pitch see 1 part 2.
    8.W.R Hamond 336 not out- scored against a very poor new zeland side - Void score
    Scored against a substandard side, yes - see Hayden.
    9.D.G Bradman 334 - A fictional character therefoe this never actualy happened
    No, not a fictional character - fictionally good, yes, but certainly existed and played this unbelievably good innings.
    10.Taylor 334 not out- retiring as too not pass the score of a fictional character is just patthetic and therefore is void
    No, if anything it should be declared more than it was, because it clearly would have been but for a declaration on oneself.
    11.Gooch 333 - Must have been recieving performance harnsing drugs through his mostache plus the fact that he was out on nelsons is just dodgy the devil must have been at work. Void inings
    Performance-enhancing drugs, what madness is this? Gooch between 1989\90 was quite sensationally good, he most certainly WAS NOT on performance-enhancing drugs and to say so is a disgrace to cricket.
    12.Inzamam ul Haq 329- Probably run someone out during this inings therefroe forefits his score
    Not unless he ran himself out - and for the record there were no run-outs in the innings.
    13.Sandham 325- West indies pitch again doenst count
    For the pitch see 1 part 2; were West Indies Test-class in 1930? It's up for question. Possibly not, but it's certainly not as clear-cut as Bangladesh always has been.
    14.Gayle - Again what a stupid pitch anyone could get a hundred on it a void ininigs
    A stupid pitch, yes, a pointless match, yes - but the significant thing is not either, it's the dropped catch on 80.
