India vs England Test: In a sensational day’s play, cricketer Karun Nair went from a sensational century, to a magical double hundred and then capped it all off with a historic triple century that he scored on day 4 of the 5th and final Test against England on Monday at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium. While England’s humiliation by India was complete, it marked the achievement of a lifetime that every cricketer dreams of and yet very few manage to achieve. Not just a personal high, Karun also ensured that India reach the highest ever score in their history of 759 for 7, a lead of 282 runs. Nair top-scored with 303. However, to put things in perspective, Nair did get a number of ‘chances’ as the butter-fingered English fielders dropped him or otherwise failed to dismiss him.

Nair was dropped on 34 by Alastair Cook and he was lucky to see his snick against Stuart Broad bouncer evading the slip cordon. Still, it just went on to show that the boy has a great temperament and does not look back and in fact learns from mistakes. His historic score augurs well for him and will certainly ensure he finds permanent place in the squad – he was picked as a replacement for injured Shikhar Dhawan. Karun Nair’s triumph made Twitter explode in joy, check out how:
