Only instance of more than 500 runs, losing only 1 wicket

In a match between England and Australia in November 2010, England achieved a unique milestone of scoring more than 500 runs losing only 1 wicket.

After bowled out on 260 in their first inning, when Australia score 481 in their first inning, England started their second inning to save an inning defeat. But England batsmen have decided something else in their mind. First Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook scored 188 runs opening wicket partnership and then Alastair Cook carried on with Jonathan Trott and take the score to 517 for 1 wicket before declaring their second inning. This is the only instance of a scoreboard where more than 500 runs scored of the loss of only 1 wicket.

Slogover, where Cricket meets memories. This Slogover website is an institution that celebrates and commemorates the heartbeat of the nation “Our Cricket”. It is committed to guide, encourage and inspire the future of Indian cricket.

We commissioned a very innovative “#Slogover #DidYouKnowCard” on this website. Here we present the important and interesting information about cricket in a very informative and sharable way.

Apart from the health benefits, cricket can teach many values to your child including how hard work and dedication can pay rich dividends.

Each game of cricket has a vital lesson to learn. From Sachin Tendulkar single-handedly carrying India, even as ‘Desert Strom’ raged on, into the finals of the 1998 Coca-Cola cup to the defining images of Brian Lara becoming the first man to score 400 runs in a single test, the game teaches how hard work and a lot of effort will eventually pay off. 

So enjoy the journey of Cricket Memories and share the #Slogover #DidYouKnowCards with your friends.
