It might not be long until 490 is scored by a team in ODIs, but this South African batsman hit an extraordinary 490 on his own in a one-day match.

20 year old batsman Shane Dadswell, playing for NWU Pukke, hit a total of 84 boundaries in 151 balls – he smashed 57 sixes and 27 fours.
His team reached a ridiculous 677/3, and the opposition, Potch Dorp, could only manage 290/9 in 50 overs, losing by 387 runs.
Potch Dorp used six bowlers – four went for over a century and the other two went for over 90.
If Dadswell wasn’t awarded man of the match, then the end of the world is surely near.
What an incredible performance!
