Australian batter Travis Head smashed a double century in Marsh Cup, on Wednesday, to become the third player - first from his country - to reach the milestone twice in List-A cricket after Rohit Sharma and Alistair Brown. 

While playing for South Australia against Queensland, Head scored 230 from just 127 balls to register the sixth-highest List-A score. He hit 28 fours and eight sixes during the historic innings. 


To reach the milestone, the left-handed batter took just 114 balls, making it the fastest double hundred in List-A cricket, overtaking Chris Gayle - who took 138 balls. 

Head's 230* is the second-highest individual score in Australia's Marsh Cup after D'Arcy Short's 257. Travis Head previously smashed a double ton in 2015 against Western Australian.
