Delhi batsman Mohit Ahlawat created history by becoming the first batsman to score a triple century in the Twenty20 format across levels.
The 21-year-old wicket-keeper batsman achieved this historic feat in a local T20 tournament at Delhi’s Lalita Park while playing for Maavi XI against Friend’s XI.
Mohit’s unbeaten 300 came off just 72 balls in his innings, in which he managed to hit 39 sixes and 14 fours. He scored 234 runs in the form of Sixes, with 56 runs off boundaries. But here’s the exciting end to his innings, i.e., to reach the score of 300 from 250, he took only 12 balls.
After 18 overs of play, Ahlawat was batting on 250 but still managed to cross the 300-mark. He scored 16 runs in the 19th over and 34 in the 20th to lead his side to a total of 416. In the last five balls, the 21-year-old scored five consecutive sixes, coming close to the famous six sixes of Yuvraj Singh.
However, having achieved an outstanding feat, Mohit will now be remembered with likes of Chris Gayle, whose 175 runs in an IPL match for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2013 is the highest score of T20 cricket
Mohit practices and trains at Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy, which also created big stars like Gautam Gambhir and Amit Mishra
However, this innings does not guarantee Mohit a selection in the Delhi Ranji Team. He has impressed the selectors with his breathtaking innings. Regardless of it being a local league match, managing to put up such a huge score to his name he has earned himself a lot of attention.
