T20 cricket has taken the game to new heights and hard-hitting batsmen have become a dreaded force. In a format, where even scoring a double century seems like an unachievable feat, Mohit Ahlawat has created history by becoming the first man to score a triple century in a T20 match. His unbeaten path-breaking innings of 300 runs came off only 72 balls and was laced with a staggering 39 sixes and 14 fours.
The young 21 year-old wicketkeeper -batsman entered his name in the cricket archives as he achieved a feat which even the likes of stalwarts such as Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli, AB DE Villiers and Brendon Mcculum can only dream of.
Mohit scored the majestic triple century for Maavi XI, a makeshift professional club against Friends XI. batsman He displayed some swashbuckling shots at Lalita park as he scored 34 runs off the last over with 5 consecutive sixes.
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 (excluding club cricket).
