World record 72-ball 302-runs batsman smashed triple century in T20 cricket match. Mohit Ahlawat’s performance in Delhi league match redefined the dynamics of batting in a Twenty20 match.
He is the first person to score a triple century in Twenty20 cricket.
Ahlawat smashed unbeaten 302, the first time a batsman did so in the shortest format of the game.
Mohit Ahlawat smashed an incredible unbeaten 300 off just 72 balls, hitting an unbelievable 39 sixes.
And 14 boundaries in a Twenty20 match at Lalita Park in Delhi.
The 21-year-old Ahlawat, who has played three first-class games for Delhi, playing for Maavi XI against Friends XI in the Friends Premier League.
In those three matches for Delhi in Ranji Trophy in the 2015-16 season, the wicket-keeper batsman managed just five runs.
Wicket-keeper batsman Ahlawat also punished the rival bowlers with 14 fours as his side put on board 416 for two in 20 overs and won the match by 216 runs.
The size of the ground and quality of bowlers though is unknown but that should take little away from an innings that will shoot Ahlawat into the national limelight.
The current international record in T20 cricket is a mere 175 that Chris Gayle scored in the IPL in 2013.

The highest individual score by a batsman was 175 by Chris Gayle in the same match. Ahlawat has basically scored more than an entire team.
His tally of 39 sixes is also monumental, considering the maximum number of sixes by a team in an innings so far was 21.
If one looks at an entire Twenty20 game, then it was 34 sixes. Once again, Ahlawat has outscored all.
