Carberry strokes unbeaten 300 in record partnership

LONDON, (Reuters) – Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry  might have caught the attention of England selectors after  amassing 300 runs on Friday

during a stand of 523 — a record  third wicket first-class partnership in England.
Neil McKenzie also scored 237 in the stand during the  domestic match with Yorkshire which ended in a draw.

Carberry played his only test against Bangladesh last year  but with regular England number three Jonathan Trott nursing a  shoulder injury, the 30-year-old made a case for selection in  the third test against India starting on Wednesday at Edgbaston.

Carberry, whose boasts 34 as his highest test score but has  been out for nine months with blood clots on his lung, stroked  43 fours and belted two sixes during his 412-ball knock.
