A 21-year-old from Delhi achieved what even a Virat Kohli couldn’t. Mohit Ahlawat entered his name in the cricket archives after he scored an outstanding triple century in a T20 match at Delhi’s Lalita Park, reported ABP News.

Playing for Maavi XI against Friend’s XI, the wicketkeeper-batsman scored an unbeaten 300 off 72 balls including 39 sixes and 14 fours.

After 18 overs of play, Ahlawat was batting on 250 but still managed to cross the 300-mark. He scored 16 runs in the 19th over and 34 in the 20th to lead his side to a total of 416. In the last five balls, the 21-year-old scored five consecutive sixes, coming close to the famous six sixes of Yuvraj Singh.

However, having achieved an outstanding feat, Mohit will now be remembered with likes of Chris Gayle, whose 175 runs in an IPL match for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2013 is the highest score of T20 cricket (excluding club cricket).
