When the first ODI was played in 1971, no one would have imagined that a player would get a double hundred in 60 overs (at that time). Even in a 50 over game, it was almost impossbile until 1997, when Belinda Clarke scored 229 against Denmark in Women’s World Cup. However, it took another 13 years for a male cricketer to join the 200 run club, and that was none other than the master, Sachin Tendulkar. Later, two more batsmen, Virender Sehwag (219) and Rohit Sharma (209) achieved the incredible feat.

What happened on Sunday in a club match is far from imagination. James Tull scored 341 for Mater hill against Queensland Warehouse Cricket Association competition. Moreover, the match wasn’t a 50 over a side, it was only 44 overs and when Tull got out, it was the 42nd over.
Remarkable feat achieved by James Tull. The Mater hill finished with a score of 457 in their 44 overs. Tull shared a 212 run partnership with Troy Dean who only contributed 36 in it.

The Queensland in reply did not even manage to surpass Tull’s individual score as they got all out in a matter of just 232 runs. Mater Hill comfotably won the match by 225 runs.
