    Your highest Test cricket score?

    Ok so basically me and friends actually use to play test cricket in the late 90's during the school summer breaks because we had nothing else to do . Basically the rules were that there was no such thing as catch, runout, lbw etc.... The only way you could get a batsmen was too clean bowl his stumps. This way we actually use to get really high scores. My highest test score was 369. Basically i batted for 2 days for four hours each. so total 8 hours of batting.I didn't even count the number of balls i faced, i think it was 500 some thing

    played inside an apartment with only 4s allowed, got 640 odd

    haha, it not easy as it sounds coz the bowlers can throw really fast [those toe crushing yorkers] and make the tennis ball cut off the pitch and if the ball touched ur legs on 3 occasions without touching the bat then u were out [a rule to get over the cheating in lbws like the ball could hv missed the stumps ], it was like body 1, body 2 and body 3 OUT lol [had to face a lot of bodyline bowling].... ofc u could get out caught, bowled, hit wkt, or if u hit a piece of glass on a window for e.g or if u hit a 6s [can't throw ur bat around inside an apartment.

    cheers

    280* dec becoz i din wanna cross VVS LAXMAN's HIGHEST SCORE
    It was pretty quick jus around a 230-250 balls
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.

    We didn't have electric wicket keeper, we didn't have run out or stumped, we didn't have six and out, all we had was bowled [low stumps] and caught and bowled, also had a couple of bonus zones that would give you a six like hitting the wheelbarrow and some of the garden gnomes.

    I was just in the zone.
