Playing for Maharashtra vs. Kathiawar in 1948-49, Bhausaheb Nimbalkar had scored 443* by the end of Day 2 in a 3-day match. He was just 9 short of Bradman's first-class world record of 452* but the Kathiawar had had enough punishment and conceded the match to Maharashtra. Another theory doing the rounds is that Nimbalkar himself had to go get married and so would not have been able to bat on Day 3 anyway.
