Aneurin Donald smashed 15 sixes, with his 200 from just 123 balls equalling the mark set by former Indian cricketer Ravi Shastri in his home country in 1985. It took the former England Under-19 captain Aneurin Donald just 43 balls to move from 100 to 200.

Aneurin Donald told BBC Wales Sport, “I was pleased because it has put the team in a strong position, and after a lean patch recently, I am delighted to get a big one. I had no idea of the records that went, but it was especially pleasing to equal Ravi Shastri’s previous record, as he is a former Glamorgan player.”

Aneurin Donald also reached 200 with a maximum as he set a new club record for the number of sixes in an innings.
