Tino Best had every reason to be on top of the world yesterday.
The exuberant Barbadian fast bowler smashed 95 to record the highest score by a No. 11 batsman in the history of Test cricket on the fourth day of the third and final Test against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
Best featured in a last-wicket partnership of 143 with wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin, who completed his second Test hundred to remain 107 not out in a West Indies first innings total of 426 in the rain-interrupted match.
Playing his first Test in three years, Best lashed 14 fours and a six, and in the process bettered the 75 that India’s Zaheer Khan scored as last man in the order against Bangladesh in 2004.
