It took ONE innings for Lara to establish that record. A test match consists of two innings- both sides batting twice, except in a case like this: Team A bats first and scores 400 runs. Team B bats and is out for 100 runs. Team A then has the option to enforce the 'follow-on', making Team B bat its second innings immediately. If this happens, and Team B is out for 100 runs again, then Team A wins by batting one innings and 200 runs.
