The history of Test cricket is 145 years old. What never happened in the history of 145 years was seen in the first Test match being played between West Indies and Zimbabwe. The West Indies cricket team is currently on a tour of Zimbabwe, where a two-match Test series is being played between the two teams. Today is the last day of the first test. On the fifth day of the match, when Kraigg Brathwaite and Tejnarine Chanderpaul came to the field to further the West Indies innings, a new unique world record was created. For the first time, two batsmen have come to bat on all five days in a single Test match.

On the first day of the match, West Indies won the toss and decided to bat first. Due to rain on the first day only 51 overs could be played. Braithwaite and Tejnarine Chanderpaul returned not out after scoring 55-55 runs. Due to rain on the second day, the game could not be played till the tea break. After this, Braithwaite and Chanderpaul came down to take the innings forward. At the end of the second day’s play, West Indies’ score was 221/0.
