India A batsman Shikhar Dhawan slammed a quickfire double century against South Africa A in their tri-series tournament match at the LC de Villiers Oval in Pretoria on Monday.

The left-handed dashing batsman clobbered four sixes and 24 boundaries to reach an unbeaten 200 off just  132 balls.

According to statistician Mohandas Menon, Dhawan’s knock is now the highest for any country A team. Dhawan surpassed the previous best of 173 not out by Upul Tharanga for Sri Lanka A against the same opposition at East London in September 2008.
