on this day

1927

Bill Ponsford broke his own world record of 429, set in 1922, by hitting 437 for Victoria against Queensland in Melbourne. Until Brian Lara added 400 not out to his 501, Ponsford was the only batsman to have scored two quadruple-centuries in first-class cricket.

1948

Another big score, in Poona, where BB Nimbalkar was left stranded on 443 - ten short of Don Bradman’s world record - when Kathiawar refused to resume after tea on the third day as they were fed up with chasing leather. Despite pleas to allow Nimbalkar to resume, they were having none of it, forfeiting the match and heading home.

2017

It took Australia less than four weeks to regain the Ashes. At the WACA, which was hosting its final Ashes Test, they beat England by an innings to take the series 3-0. Steven Smith made his second double-hundred, and Mitchell Marsh, who got an unexpected call-up after remodelling himself as a Test batsman - scored a breakthrough 181. Australia piled up 662, and England began the final day trailing by 127 runs with six wickets in hand. They had brief hopes of a draw when the start was delayed because water had got into the pitch after rain the previous evening. However, once play finally got going, at 1pm, England lasted only another 34 overs. Josh Hazlewood took 5 for 48 and eight wickets for the match.
