Irfan Rabbani scored 304 runs from a 50-over total of 438 runs for 5 wickets as his Appolo team romped to a 227 run victory over United XI in the Canadian Commonwealth Cricket Association of 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 runs for the 2nd wicket, 155 runs for the 3rd wicket and 118 runs for the 4th wicket. Naveed Tariq was next highest scorer with 57 runs. Rabbani was eventually bowled by Khayan Raja.
Congratulations for an amazing batting achievement.
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 20th.
