Pretoria: After a brief lull, Shikhar ‘Gabbar’ Dhawan roared back to top form, scoring a record breaking 248 off 150 balls in India-A’s 50-over game against South African A side here on Monday. Dhawan hit 30 fours and seven sixes in his knock, besides featuring in a 285-run second wicket stand with Cheteshwar Pujara.  Dhawan opened the batting with Murali Vijay and the duo compiled 91 for the first wicket. Vijay was dismissed by Beuran Hendricks for 40.  Thereafter, Pujara and Dhawan took the attack to the South African bowlers, picking up boundaries at will.  Dhawan equalled the highest List A score in the 42 over, when he smashed a six to take his tally to 222. Graeme Pollock had scored 222* for Eastern Province v Border in 1974.  The highest score in List A cricket belongs to Ali Brown, who rampaged his way to 268 for Surrey against Glamorgan at The Oval in 2002.  Dhawan's knock is now the highest for any country's 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.  The winner of this match will take on Australia A in their tri-series final. On Sunday, Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell led Australia A to the summit clash with a 25-run victory over India.
