Graham Gooch was at the height of powers during the 1990 Test series against India. The former English captain racked up a monumental triple-hundred [333] In the first innings of the 1st Test at Lord’s and followed it up with another 123 in the second.

But, do you know, Indian bowlers could have been saved with the ignominy of seeing Gooch tear their bowling apar, had Kiran More accepted the caught-behind chance offered by the England batsman when he was on 36 in the first innings. More didn’t and Gooch duly obliged by creaming a triple ton.

India eventually went on to lose the game by 247 runs.
