Is a Graham Hooch vs India 333 + 123 = 456 in single test innings? Every single test has two innings not only one inning. It's about single test innings not about single test inning.

Because Lara scored 400* vs England.

Ashutosh said: (Jan 2, 2017)  
@Prem.

Here is the reason.

In 1994, Brian Lara had first held the record scoring 375 against England before getting out while edging a tired drive to Russell off Caddick in the last over before lunch. In 2003, Matthew Hayden eclipsed his Test record for the highest individual score of 375 by five runs in 2003 scoring 380, but Lara was not the person to give up. 6 months later, he reclaimed the record scoring 400 not out in 2004 against England. With these innings, he became the second player to score two Test triple centuries, the second player to score two career quadruple centuries, the only player to achieve both these milestones, and regained the distinction of being the holder of both the record first-class individual innings and the record Test individual innings. He is the only player to break the world record twice. Two months later, he scored 501* in country cricket for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston in 1994, which is the only quintuple hundred in first-class cricket history!

So, of course, he has done so many records for the West Indies team! It is said that he contributed to 20 percent of the West Indians' runs! What a Record!
