Cape Town - North West University Cricket Club (Pukke) batsman Shane Dadswell has struck a record 490 in a North West Cricket premier league 50 over game on Saturday.

Dadswell's innings helped Pukke to victory by 387 runs against Potchefstroom Dorp Cricket Club at the Witrand Oval in Potchefstroom.

Dadswell's quadruple ton spanned a mere 151 deliveries and featured 27 fours and a staggering 57 sixes. He scored 253 runs through the off-side and 237 on the leg-side.

The previous highest score was 486 by Sankruth Sriram of India.

The right-handed opening batsman achieved the record on his 20th birthday - and was well supported by Ruan Haasbroek who scored 104 not out.

The pair carried Pukke to a massive total of 677/3 in their 50 overs.

Potchefstroom Dorp bowler Dawid Crowther proved the most expensive with a costly 1-131 in 10 overs.

Potchefstroom Dorp responded with 290 for nine with Dadswell, who capped a fine all-round contribution with the ball, finishing with figures of 2-32 in seven overs.
