Hyderabad opener Tanmay Agarwal created world record on Friday hammering the fastest first-class triple hundred against Arunachal Pradesh during the Ranji Trophy round four match at the NexGen Cricket Ground in Hyderabad. Agarwal broke South Africa’s Marco Marais record, who hit 300 in 191 balls for Border against Eastern Province in 2017.
Tanmay also broke former Indian captain Ravi Shastri’s 39-year-old record of the fastest First-Class double hundred by an Indian after reaching the 200 mark on 119 balls. It was also the second-fastest First-Class double century ever. Tanmay smashed 21 sixes at the time of writing, a Ranji Trophy record. Ishan Kishan (14) held previous record of the maximum sixes in an innings in India’s prestigious domestic tournament.
Tanmay overall scored 323 off 160 balls smashing 33 fours and 21 sixes!
