Dhaniram smashes a place in record books

Martin Williamson

Sudesh Dhaniram, former West Indies A-team batsman, smashed an unbeaten 257 on June 24, possibly the highest individual limited-overs innings in US cricket.

His innings was instrumental in Far Rockaway's massive 334-run victory over Lions in a 40-over clash in the Nassau Cricket League in Queens, New York.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
