In Sunday's Norwich Union Division One match at Trent Bridge between Notts Outlaws and the Gloucestershire Gladiators the domestic one--day seventh wicket record was broken.
Jeremy Snape, the 25-year-old all--rounder, hit his maiden century and Mark Hardinges, on his debut in the competition, scored 65.
The pair had come together with the Gladiators Innings in total disarray at 33-5. 25 overs later they had added 164 before 23-year-old Hardinges was stumped by Chris Read off the bowling of Australian Greg Blewett. Snape batted until the conclusion of the Glouca innings to remain undefeated on 104 not out.
The existing Sunday League record for the seventh wicket had been 132, set by KR Brown and NR Williams for Middx against Somerset at Lords in 1985.
160 had been the overall seventh wicket mark, set by CJ Richards and IR Payne for Surrey against Lincs in a NatWest match at Sleaford in 1983.
