After KL Rahul got out scoring a huge number of 199 runs in the first innings of the fifth test match against England, another young batsman from Karnataka makes it look regular by smashing a humongous triple century. Karun Nair was unbeaten at 303 as India declared at 759/7.

Karun Nair became the second Indian to score a triple century by scoring a huge 303 in his third International test match. The Indian team almost broke the record for highest team total in India as it fell short of Sri Lanka’s 760 by one run. India made its highest ever total as Karun magnificiently converted his maiden century into a double and further into a triple century.

The cricket fraternity congratulated Karun as he broke the record for the highest maiden test century by and Indian. The young batsman from Karnataka went past Vinod Kambli’s record score of 224. After completing his maiden test century on Monday morning, no English bowler could stop him. He made the most out of the opportunity when he was dropped on 34 during the Innings. Karun Nair took the English bowlers quite freely after reaching his first century in International cricket.

Here’s how twitter reacted to Karun Nair’s mesmerizing knock:
