However, two higher totals in one-run defeats in T20 matches stand out: Central Districts’ 248 for 4 against Otago (249 for 3) in New Plymouth in New Zealand’s Super Smash in December 2016 and India’s 244 for 4 against West Indies (245 for 6) in a T20I in Lauderhill in the United States four months earlier.

Turning to Test cricket, Don Bradman’s remarkable record stands out as he made 11 Test centuries in England, setting the bar high for visiting players. Other notable names include Jack Hobbs with nine Test hundreds in Australia, Sunil Gavaskar and Steve Smith with seven centuries each in the West Indies and England respectively. However, Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for the most Test centuries away from home with 29, reflecting his unparalleled skill on foreign soil.

In terms of partnerships, Tamim Iqbal and Mominul Haque’s 170-run stand against England in 2016 accounted for 77.27% of Bangladesh’s total of 220, marking one of the highest proportions in Test cricket history.

Despite his incredible aggregate of 351 runs, Lara’s performance remains the highest in a losing cause in Test cricket, narrowly surpassing Andy Flower’s 341 runs against South Africa in 2001.
