MELBOURNE - Indian-origin batsman Kumar Sarna has hit the highest score ever in Twenty20 cricket by smashing 228 not out off just 65 balls in a suburban match in Melbourne.
Playing for Wonga Park in the Ringwood and District Cricket Association, Sarna hit 22 sixes and 17 fours against Croydon North, Fox Sports reports.
The 19-year-old batsman’s double century helped his team score 277 for four, and win the match by 148 runs.
Talking about the innings, Wonga Park coach Bruce Waldron said: “It was incredible to watch, just awesome.”
“In the end you just had to stand there and laugh, he was that good. I don’t think I’ll see anything like that again,” he added.
Sarna was born in India and came to Australia with his parents and sister when he was two.
He was part of the Australian team for the Under 19 Youth World Cup in February this year. (ANI)
