Waughs' record eclipsed as Pujara scores triple

Triple-centuries seem to come by every other game for Cheteshwar Pujara. He had scored two in one week last month in the CK Nayudu Under-22 tournament, and today he pushed from his overnight 128 to become the first Saurashtra batsman to make a triple ton. His partner in the run-fest, Ravindra Jadeja, scored his maiden century, ending unbeaten on 232. The unbroken fifth-wicket stand was worth 520 runs, the two scoring 347 in 72.5 overs on the second day. It was the second-best partnership in Indian cricket - after Vijay Hazare and Gul Mahomed's 577-run stand for Baroda against Holkar in 1946-47 - and the highest fifth-wicket partnership in any first-class cricket, beating the unbroken 464-run stand between the Waugh twins for New South Wales against Western Australia in 1990-91.
Watch out for Pujara, he will probably turn out to be next Dravid. Jadeja also seems to be an exciting prospect.

Actually there is a quite few Bangladeshi batsman who scored 200+ in NCL - Rokibul Hasan (tripple century), Ashraful, Habibul Bashar,Minhajul Abedin, Nazimuddin, and Khaled Mashud. Shahriar Hossain had scored a double century in a Pakistani FC league playing for Bangladesh-A. Tushar Imran also had scored a double century for Bangladesh-A in an unofficial match in India (don't remember if it was a 3-day or a 4-day match).
