Shikhar Dhawan slams double ton for India
India's new batting sensation Shikhar Dhawan today gave yet another exhibition of stunning strokeplay by smashing a blistering 248 off 150 balls against South Africa 'A' here, missing out on a world record feat by just 20 runs.

27-year-old Dhawan, who clobbered 30 boundaries and seven sixes in his superlative knock, became the second highest individual scorer in the history of List A games (limited overs matches) behind former England and Surrey batsman Alistair Brown.

Brown had scored 268 for Surrey against Glamorgan at Oval back on July 19, 2002.

If Dhawan's first 100 came off only 86 balls, the second hundred came off only 46 balls as he raced to his first List A double hundred in only 132 balls with a push off left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks' bowling at the LC de Villiers Oval.
