Hope you have seen this one:
In the first innings alone, we have:
The cutoff here is 55.
Bradman is still at #1, with over 100. Next are current player SPD Smith and another Australian in AL Hassett.
Ross Taylor, David Warner and F du Plessis are other current players here, though not in the top 10.
Among Indian players, Tendulkar is 9th here. Others are Sehwag, Dravid and Sidhu.
The Test record of 400* by Lara was in the first innings, besides the earlier records of 364 by Hutton and 334 by Bradman.
In the second innings, we have:
The cutoff here is still 55.
Bradman yet again leads, followed by current player KS Williamson and Mohammad Yousuf.
Other current players in the top ten are JE Root (4) and V Kohli (5).
Going further down, the other current players here are SPD Smith (besides AB de Villiers and AN Cook if you stretch a little).
From India, there is Kohli followed by Sehwag, Dravid, Gavaskar and Tendulkar.
The highest score here is 374 by M Jayawardene, while the old Test records of 365* by Sobers and 336* by Hammond are also here.
Current players seem to have done a little better here than in the first innings.
Will take up the third and fourth innings next. The results are somewhat different.
