Brisbane, Sep 20: Australia's New South Wales (NSW) blasted their way to one of the highest scores in 50-over cricket in the history when they posted a mammoth 465/7 in 50 overs against Western Australia here.
According to the "Herald Sun" newspaper, NSW registered this score in a pre-season match at the Allan Border Oval in Brisbane on Wednesday (September 18). Left-hander Ben Rohrer blasted a 66-ball 108.
The other major contributors for this record score were Ryan Carters with 91 off 70 deliveries and Moises Henriques 87 off 55. Nic Maddinson also hit a half century with 76 off 48 balls.
In reply, Western Australia were bowled out for 213 in 40 overs, losing by a huge margin of 252.
The highest score in a One Day International is 443/9 by Sri Lanka against The Netherlands in Amstelveen in 2006.
Highest team total in a List A game (50 overs) is owned by Surrey, who hit 496/4 in 50 overs against Gloucestershire in 2007 at The Oval in London.
"It just sort of happened naturally," Rohrer told the Fox Sports website. "With the players we had at the top of the order, Maddinson and Henriques are naturally very aggressive, so they went out and played their natural games and got us off to a flyer. It was a nice start to come in off the back of.
"Ryan Carters played really well in the middle for 90, and I chipped in with a few as well," Rohrer, who played for Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League's sixth edition (IPL 6), added.
