Cape Town - English teenager Dominic Sibley has set a new county cricket record when he shared in a massive partnership with South Africa's Hashim Amla.

According to the BBC Sport website, the 18-year-old became the youngest-ever player to score 200 in a Championship innings as Surrey built a 138-run lead over Yorkshire to close on 572-4 at The Oval in London.

He shared a 236-run stand with Amla, who himself notched 151.

Amla scored at almost a run a ball while Sibley, who began the day on 81, ended on 220 not out off 505 deliveries.

Sibley was given permission by Whitgift School to miss four days of A-level study to play his third first-class game against the Division One runners-up.

Yorkshire scored 434 in their first innings.
