It is said that nothing is impossible in cricket. That's why 867 runs were scored in a match. Which no one would have even thought of.


Such a miracle happened on this day i.e. 19 June 2002 between Surrey and Glamorgan in Cheltenham and Gloucestershire, England's home ODI tournament. Surrey scored a mammoth total of 438 for the loss of 5 wickets on the back of a stormy inning of 268 runs from 60 balls by opener Ali Brown.



Ali Brown hit 30 fours and 12 sixes in this innings. That is, he had scored 192 runs in only 42 balls. He shared a 286-run partnership for the first wicket with Ian Ward (97).

In reply, Glamorgan fell just 9 runs away from the target. She got out for 429 runs. For him, captain Robert Kraft scored 119 runs from 69 balls and David Hemp scored 102 runs from 88 balls. Darren Thomas made an unbeaten 71 off 41 balls and Adrian Delay contributed 49 runs off 33 balls.
