    The next one would be Brian Lara’s 400*.

  7. Visual 1 – Charles Bannerman
    Visual 2 – Billy Murdoch
    Visual 3 – RE Foster
    The list pertains to progression of highest individual scores in test cricket. Bannerman (165), Billy Murdoch (211) and RE Foster (287).
    The one who would follow these three cricketers in this list would be Andy Sandham who scored 325 (test cricket’s first triple hundred) against West Indies in 1929-30.

  8. vijaysarathy

  9. Dear Uncle:

    The three gentlemen are Charles Bannerman (first Test centurion), Billy Murdoch (first Test double centurion), and Andy Sandham (first Test triple centurion).

    Brian Lara (first Test quadruple centurion) would complete the list.

    Kind regards,
    Thomas Masun

  10. It’s amazing to see how the same question comes in different forms :-)
    Charlie Bannerman & Andy Sandham are identifiable. I am guessing the middle one is Billy Murdoch b’cos of obvious reasons.
    Hence the connection would be the first scorers of hundred, double hundered, triple hundred & therefore this leads to the first quadraple centurion Brian Lara

  11. Brian Lara first to hit a test 400.
    bannerman- first to hit100, murdoc-1st 200, sandham-1st 300

  12. Progression of highest score by an Austalian in Test cricket. First guy is Charles Bannerman, Second is Billy Murdoch, then Don Bradman. The next one should ideally be Mark Taylor

  13. charles bannerman, bill murdoch and andrew sandham . scored first 100, 200 and 300 in test cricket respectively
    lara is the missing one

  14. Chandrakant Nair

    Pic 1 – Charles Bannerman – 1st hundred in test cricket

    Pic 3 – Andy Sandham – 1st triple hundred in test cricket
