72 years after India played its first Test, an Indian finally hit the nation's first triple Test hundred.
Interestingly, it was not Sachin Tendulkar nor Rahul Dravid nor V V S Laxman who scaled that lofty peak, but the dimunitive master blaster from Najafgarh.
Veeru joins a distinguished roster of 17 batsmen with names like Bradman and Hammond, Sobers and Lara, Taylor and Hayden who have made triple centuries in the highest form of the game.
