Headline
(Male Surname) shatters Lara’s record

Written By
Chief Sports Editor

HARD-HITTING (Male First Name) (Male Surname) re-wrote the Wisden history books yesterday by smashing an incredible 636 for the team on the first day of their County Championship match.

The mighty knock, already being dubbed the “Innings of the Century”, included 87 fours and 31 sixes – 6 of those coming in a single over from Aussie spin legend Shane Warne. The boundary-blitzing bat-throwing of (Male Surname) sent shock waves through the cricket world, demolishing Brian Lara’s previous world record 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham in 1994.

(Lives In)-based (Male Surname) said: “I am sure Lara will take the news very well and records are there to be broken.”

In-form (Male Surname), (Age), marched to the wicket with his team struggling on 8-2 after three overs, watched by a small crowd. But the ground soon began to fill as news of the devastating shot-selection spread. Ashes heroes Michael Vaughan and Freddie Flintoff were among the gathering supporters cheering (Male Surname) to 200. Former England all-rounder Ian Botham arrived with Allan Lamb and Geoffrey Boycott to see (Male Surname) despatch the hapless Warne for a sensational reverse-swept six to bring up his 400.

A Sky’s commentator said: “Warnie’s 708 Test wickets counted for nothing out there. (Male Surname) was hitting them like tracer bullets to every part of the ground.”

(Male Surname) expertly farmed the strike after the tea interval to reach 500 with an arrogant one-handed cover-driven six off Warne, who finished with bowling figures of 22-0-377-0. Team-mates meanwhile scored only 45 runs between them all afternoon. The team skipper admitted: “It was a poor toss to lose and the wicket was going a bit. One of the batsmen had to step up to the plate, and carving Warnie for six sixes in an over was the icing on the cake.”

(Male Surname) was eventually caught on the long-off boundary attempting to smash a loose delivery from Warne over the spectators’ heads. An emotional Warne left the ground without speaking to the media. His agent said: “Forget Man of the Match, (Male First Name) (Male Surname) is the Man of the Century. His performance today was heroic.”
