Hyderabad: In a groundbreaking moment for cricket, Tanmay Agarwal, the talented Indian opener from Hyderabad, has etched his name in history by smashing the record for the most number of sixes in a First-Class game.

Fastest Triple-Hundred: Tanmay Agarwal showcased his brilliance in a Ranji Trophy Plate Group match against Arunachal Pradesh, scoring the fastest triple-hundred in the history of first-class cricket. He reached his triple-century in just 147 balls.

Record-Breaking Sixes: Not only did Tanmay miss Brian Lara’s score of 501*, but he also set a new world record by hitting an incredible 26 sixes in a First-Class innings. The previous record was held by New Zealand’s Colin Munro with 23 sixes.

Dominating Performance: The 28-year-old batter’s phenomenal innings included 33 fours, along with the remarkable 21 sixes. Tanmay remained unbeaten on 323 off 160 balls at the end of the day’s play.

Previous Records: Tanmay had already broken South African cricketer Marco Marais’s record for the fastest triple-hundred in first-class cricket, achieved in 191 balls.

Reflecting on the Achievement: Tanmay Agarwal expressed his gratitude, mentioning that after reaching 150, he started hitting freely, and luck favored him. The record-breaking feat was unplanned and unfolded as he found the middle of the bat consistently.

Lopsided Contest Questions Integration: The dominating performance against a north-eastern side has raised questions about the inclusion of such teams directly into the Ranji Trophy, where records are being broken regularly.

Run Riot in Gen-Next Cricket Ground: The match, held at the ‘Gen-Next’ cricket ground on the outskirts of the city, witnessed a staggering score of 529 for 1 in just 48 overs, with Tanmay’s undefeated 323 contributing significantly.

Tanmay Agarwal’s extraordinary display of power-hitting has not only set a new benchmark in first-class cricket but has also created a moment that will be remembered in the annals of the sport.
