Doing 357* in 1899 seems quite a feat in itself!

Of course my first thought is about the pitch! But must be well played nonetheless

Bah. Indian first class has much more quality than stupid gully cricket by below average bumpkin cricketers with no rules

I take all records by Indians, especially in first-class cricket in India, with a ton of salt.
If they do it in English conditions, ok, I can accept it.
