Johannesburg: Shane Dadswell, a South African student, has set what is believed to be a cricket record by smashing 490 not out in a limited-overs club match. Dadswell, a second-year business psychology student at Potchefstroom University, slammed 57 sixes and 27 fours in a 151-ball innings on his 20th birthday.

He was playing for the university team against Potchefstroom Town in a 50-over league match at the Witrand ground, which has staged first-class matches. The highest previous record score in a limited-overs match is believed to be 486 by S. Sanruth Sriram in an Indian under-16 school match in 2014.
