    Ross
    Taylor has achieved one of the rarest feats in Test cricket.

     

    He
    scored 76 runs in both innings against Zimbabwe in the ongoing Test
    in Bulawayo
    . He's only the 15th batsman ever to score identical
    scores of fifty or more in the same Test.

     

    Duleep
    Mendis of Sri Lanka scored 105 twice in the Chennai Test of 1982, making it the
    highest identical scores in a Test.

    A
    triple-hundred is a rarity in any form of cricket and Ranji Trophy is no
    exception. There are only 27 triples in 77 years of the tournament. Ravindra
    Jadeja of Saurashtra is the latest.

     

    The
    first was Vijay Hazare, who had made 316 not out representing Maharashtra
    against Baroda in Pune in 1939-40

     

    Jadeja
    made 314 against Orissa in Cuttack in one of the opening games of Ranji Trophy
    season 2011-12.
