Revealed: The Real Story Behind Mohit Ahlawat’s Triple Century In T20 Match
21-year-old Delhi batsman Mohit Ahlawat has created a huge buzz among the cricket fans after becoming the first batsman to score a triple century in a T20 match.
The wicketkeeper-batsman, who has represented Delhi in the Ranji Trophy, achieved this incredible feat in a local T20 tournament at Delhi’s Lalita Park, playing for Maavi XI against Friend’s XI.
His unbeaten knock of 300 came from only 72 balls and was studded with a staggering 39 sixes and 14 fours. In fact, his batting was so devastating that he scored his last 50 runs in the last two overs including 5 consecutive sixes off the last 5 balls of the innings. His stunning innings helped his team to post a mammoth 416 in the allotted 20 overs.
Now there is absolutely no denying the fact that cricket fans around the country have been left shell-shocked with Ahlawat monumental effort but there is another side of the story that might make them undermine the Delhi youngster’s blistering knock.
The ground at which the match was played was quite small in size as compared to a international ground. The measurement of the boundaries of that ground was only 40 yards, while only the inner circle in international cricket measures 30 yards. So one can surely understand how easy it was for a Ranji Trophy player to perform at such a small ground.
On the other hand, the boundaries in an international field measure 65 to 70 yards while in some cases they go up as much as 75 yards. The playing area of the Melbourne Cricket Ground,which is the biggest cricket stadium in the world, is 172.90m long (189.085 yards) and 147.80m wide (161.63).
But putting aside all this, we should really appreciate the effort of the Delhi batsman who has registered his name in the record books with the amazing knock. He is still trying to find his feet in the game and we really hope that he keeps on performing in a similar manner.
