Hanif Mohammad
of Pakistan scored 337
against West Indies at Bridgetown
in Jan 1958 which is the highest score amongst the batsmen who have scored
double hundreds in the second innings. MD Crowe missed the distinction of
scoring a triple hundred by a whisker - just a single run - against Sri Lanka at Wellington in Jan 1991.
