10 Mar 1974
Lawrence Rowe scored a breathtaking triple century against England in Barbados. He achieved the feat off of just 430 balls, and hit 37 boundaries (one of which went for six). After just 13 tests Rowe was averaging 70 and had scored 11 centuries, but in his last 17 he only scored a single century and averaged 26.
