From today’s BBC News:

“Indian cricketer Mohit Ahlawat hit an extraordinary 72-ball triple century in a local Twenty20 match in Delhi. The 21-year-old hit 39 sixes, including five off the final over, as he posted a round 300 and his team Maavi finished on 416-2. His total dwarves the top-tier record of 175 scored by Chris Gayle in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL).”

Mohit is in the hat for an IPL bid

As a comparison, Hampshire played five matches in the first-ever T20 season (2003) and each time batted the full 20 overs. Their totals ranged between 152 and 121, with an average total over those five games of 141. Only five innings of 300+ have been played for Hampshire in first-class cricket, in well over 100 seasons (Poore, Moore, Crawley twice and Carberry).

Meanwhile, interesting Sports headline in today’s Guardian: 

“Cook: ECB hung me out to dry over Pietersen”.
