Tasmania spluttered to 246 in 43 overs in today’s Ranger Cup match at Hurstville. Michael Dighton scored 69. Aaron Bird took 4/62.

Then, 22 y.o. Blue, David Warner, played an astonishing innings.

He was 165 n.o. from 112 balls with 19 fours and NINE sixes when NSW won by 9 wickets and with a bonus point.

It was the highest innings in one day cricket for NSW, beating Rick McCosker’s 164, set in the ‘81/82 season.

He and Phil Hughes slammed 152 in 21.3 overs before Hughes fell for 55 (57 balls). Ed Cowan (28*) simply kept putting Warner on strike.
