New Delhi: Records are meant to be broken. James Tull - a club cricketer in Australia took batting to an altogether different level when he slammed a triple ton – 341 runs - for Mater Hill in a Queensland Warehouse Cricket Association competition.

A triple is always counted as a huge achievement for any batsman, but Tull's effort is incredible as it came in a limited overs match that was reduced to 44 overs for each side.

Tull’s innings was studded with 25 sixes and 34 fours and included a fifth-wicket stand of 212 runs with the second-highest scorer of the match - Troy Dean – who scored just 36 runs. As a result of Tull's historic innings, Mater Hill posted a mammoth score of 457/5 in 44 overs and registered a comprehensive 225-run win over opposition Silent Assassins.

In cricket, at one time, a double ton was supposed to be an unachievable feat. But Australian Belinda Clarke became the first cricketer ever to score a double ton in limited-overs cricket. Later on, Indian batsmen Sachin Tendulkar became the first male cricketers to have achieved that record. He was then followed by countrymen Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma.
