Player smashes 304 in domestic 50-over match
By Eddie Norfolk
Irfan Rabbani scored 304 from a 50-over total of 438 for 5 to help his Appolo team romped to a 227-run win over United XI in Toronto's First Division last weekend. This is the highest individual score in Canadian domestic cricket, overhauling the 280 scored by Canadian international player Don Maxwell when with York University.
Rabbani hit 48 boundaries and six sixes. He took part in stands of 120 for the second wicket, 155 for the third and 118 for the fourth. Naveed Tariq was next highest scorer with 57 runs. Rabbani was eventually bowled by Khayan Raja.
This feat is timely, as the fallen record comes on the eve of the second Canadian Colleges and Universities cricket tournament. This year's event has a 20/20 format and includes ten teams, who will be playing at Maple Leaf CC, King City, Ontario between Monday July 16 and Friday July 20.
