Kerala's Sanju Samson rewrote history books with his maiden double hundred in List A cricket against Goa in the elite group encounter of the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019.
Samson, considered one of the country's most promising talents, made a scintillating 129-ball 212* as Kerala went on to post an insurmountable 377/3 in its allotted 50 overs with the bat.
The 24-year-old had a memorable outing with his outstanding innings, including twenty-one fours and ten maximums.
He went past Pakistan batsman Abid Ali's 209*; scored as the highest-ever List A score by a wicketkeeper in a match. Ali had done so for Islamabad versus Peshawar in the National One Day Cup.
This is also the third-highest List A score in India and fourth by an Indian. Samson now owns the highest-ever individual score in the Vijay Hazare Trophy; eclipsing KV Kaushal of Uttarakhand, who scored 202 against Sikkim last year.
He had a record-breaking partnership of 338 runs with Sachin Baby, who also contributed a wonderful century towards the team's cause.
Goa bowlers failed miserably in wake of the duo's onslaught before the team's batsmen also struggled under pressure to hand Kerala a crucial 104-run victory.
