Lankan duo smash their way in record books

india Updated: Aug 10, 2006 16:24 IST

On a record-breaking second day of Colombo Test, Sri Lanka did not lose a single wicket adding 357 runs to their overnight total of 128.

They thus provided the rare occurrence of a side not losing a single wicket through out an uninterrupted day's play.

The 357 runs added by Sangakkara & Jayawardene also equal the world record of most runs in a day's play where no wicket fell. West Indians Conrad Hunte and Gary Sobers had also added 357 runs against Pakistan at Kingston in 1957-58.
 
The following table lists the instances of no wicket falling throughout an uninterrupted day's play.
