World record highest Test match total by any team
Sri Lankan fans carry the national flag in front of the Premadasa Stadium scoreboard bearing the historic total after the home team reached 952 for six against India at close of play on August 6, 1997. The score sets a new world record, eclipsing England's 1938 record of 903 runs for seven declared against Australia at the Oval. © AFP/SENA VIDANAGAMA
