Jamie How Breaks New Zealand Domestic Cricket Record - Should He Be Recalled To The Blackcaps?
How hit 27 fours and 8 sixes in his 188 minute innings at Hamilton's Seddon Park.
The team was in pursuit of the record tally in a one-day innings in the NZ one-day competition of 410-5 from 50 overs set by Canterbury against Otago in 2009/10. Central Districts is heading for a total well in excess of 400 runs!
How needed to reach 269 to set a new world's best mark for a 50-over match, set in 2002 by Ali Brown for Surrey against Glamorgan at The Oval.
Unfortunately, How has struggled to make the step up to international level and this innings probably sums up the lack of quality in New Zealand domestic cricket without the Blackcaps playing. I still have my doubts about him at international level.
