, 2:46 PM IST

Glamorgan teenager Aneurin Donald has equaled former India batsman Ravi Shastri’s record of fastest double century during his side’s first-class cricket match against Derbyshire on Sunday.

The 19-year-old smashed 15 sixes in his 123-ball knock to reach the milestone set by Shastri in India in 1985.

Reflecting on his performance, Donald said he felt delighted to put his side in a strong position with his ‘big’ knock, Sport24 reported.

Donald revealed he had no clue about the records, but admitted that it was really special to equal former Glamorgan player Shastri’s record.

The former Under-19 skipper, who came to the crease when his side was at 96-3, took just 43 balls to move from 100 to 200 runs as Glamorgan ended the first day on 491-8.
