WATCH: D’Arcy Short smashes 23 sixes in record-breaking double century

Australia’s D’Arcy Short smashed 257 off just 148 deliveries, hitting a remarkable 23 sixes in the ongoing JLT Cup against Queensland at Hurstville Oval. He shattered the record of the highest individual score in the one-day game in Australia.

The record for the highest individual score was previously held by Ben Dunk who had scored 229 in 2014. Now, this is the third highest individual score in List-A cricket, only after Surrey’s AD Brown and India’s Rohit Sharma.
