Top 5 Batsmen Who Got Out In 290s. Getting out in the 90’s itself is heartbreaking, but falling in 290s is just an agonising pain for a batsman. For his teammates, he did the job by laying down a solid foundation and putting them in a commanding position but what about not reaching a personal milestone after being so close makes it harder to digest.
Here are 5 players who would not be too happy to find their names on this list.
Top 5 Batsmen Who Got Out In 290s
During the 2008-09 England vs West Indies series, Sarwan was enjoying the form of his life while scoring 106, 94 and 107 in the first three tests. Coming into the fourth test, West Indies were already 1-0 up and England had to respond which they did stunningly by scoring 600 in their first innings. They started off pretty well with the ball too, removing Gayle cheaply but little did they know about what was waiting for them, what followed after that was a majestic inning from Sarwan.
He forged partnerships with Chanderpaul(70) and Ramdin(166) during his 291 run innings and brought his team’s score close to 600, but heartbreak soon followed when he was bowled by Sidebottom on 291.
