Hales beats record

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY UNION -

CRICKET: Alex Hales set a new bench­mark for the high­est in­di­vid­ual score in the T10 League in the United Arab Emi­rates – 24 hours after Eng­land team-mate Jonny Bairstow achieved the feat.

Bairstow crashed 84 not out from only 24 balls in Shar­jah on Fri­day for the high­est score in the com­pe­ti­tion’s his­tory but Hales bet­tered the mark for his Maratha Ara­bi­ans fran­chise.

The 29-year-old opener clubbed six fours and eight sixes in an un­beaten 87 from 32 de­liv­er­ies to help his side over­haul a 136-run vic­tory tar­get to beat Ben­gal Tigers.
