It happens to achieve this milestone on his birthday. <p></p> <p></p>His 300 came in 318 balls, inclusive of 40 fours and one solitary six. With this he became only the third player to score a triple-hundred on his birthday in First-Class cricket. The first player to achieve the feat was <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england" target="_blank">England s</a> Colin Cowdrey in 1962. And the second player and last player before Chopra was <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/India" target="_blank">India s</a> very own Raman Lamba in 1995. <p></p> <p></p>Himachal Pradesh are currently in a position of strength amassing more than 500 runs against Punjab.
