It sounds really incredible. How can one imagine a triple century in a T20 match? But that breath-taking incident has taken place in a match in Delhi, India.
Delhi’s wicket-keeper batsman Mohit Ahlawat has set the rare record as he scored triple century in a T20 game.
This record was not set either in an international match or a well-known domestic cricket tournament but it has become hot topic in cricket of India.
Ahlawat was playing for Maavi XI against Friends XI’s at Delhi’s Lalita Park. Where he smashed 53 boundaries including 39 sixes and 14-fours to score unbeaten 300 runs.
This wicket-keeper batsman hit five consecutive sixes in the last over of the game to reach the unique record. He remained unbeaten and scored 300 runs by facing just 72 deliveries! His superb knock helped his side to post a total of 416 runs on the board at the end of the 20 overs. After becoming the first-ever batsman to score 300* runs in T20, he showed his joy. This 21-year old cricketer is wishing to carry on his good forms.
To be noted, no cricketer has able to smash a double-hundred in the history of T20I or in franchises-based cricket tournament.
