West Indies all-rounder Rakheem Cornwall wrote history on Wednesday by hitting a double century in T20 cricket. The hard hitter batsman scored an unbeaten 205 off just 77 balls against Square Drive at the ongoing Atlanta Open 2022 tournament in the United States.
Cornwall knocked 17 boundaries and hit 22 sixes in his 205 runs' innings with a strike rate of 266.23.
Atlanta Fire won the toss and elected to bat first. His extraordinary knock took Atlanta Fire to 326/1 in 20 overs. It is the highest in the T20 format.
A video of Cornwall's knock has been shared on Twitter by the official handle of Minor League Cricket.
The target would eventually prove to be way beyond Square Drive's reach as they went on to lose the contest by a phenomenal margin of 172 runs.
Cornwall is the second batter to hit a double century in a match in T20 cricket format.
India's Subodh Bhati became the first player to score a double century in a club T20 game. He scored 205* in 79 balls.
