Playing just his 16th List-A match, 21-year-old opener Jake Fraser-McGurk from South Australia went into the match against Tasmania with just one half-century from his 15 List-A innings. 

That half-century ironically came in his List-A debut for Victoria against New South Wales in November 2019: he scored 54 off 49 balls batting at number six, his side winning by six runs. 

Having moved to South Australia, Fraser-McGurk opened the batting for his side as they looked to chase Tasmania’s monster score of 435 at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide. The visitors’ score was the highest total ever in Australian domestic one-day cricket. 

Fraser-McGurk and fellow opener Hunt got the innings off to an incredible start, adding 172 for the first wicket in 11.4 overs, when Hunt was out for 51 off 47 balls 23 runs later in the 16th over. 

Their team-mates kept the chase going superbly but were bowled out in the 47th over with their score on 398, losing by 37 runs. 

Fraser-McGurk Record Innings

Fraser-McGurk’s 125 came off just 38 balls at a phenomenal strike-rate of 328.94 runs per 100 balls. His innings included 10 fours and 13 sixes. His century came up in the ninth over and he lost his wicket in the 12th over.

AB de Villiers’ record was set in a one-day international for South Africa against the West Indies at the Wanderers in Johannesburg, when the South African slammed his way to a ton off just 31 balls. 

"I went out there with some good intent, had my plans and process, and seemed like everything went my way. I've been hitting them reasonably well but probably not that well so I definitely surprised myself," Fraser-McGurk said after the match.

Slow Start

Despite chasing a monster score, the South Australia innings got off to a slow start, with Fraser-McGurk facing just one ball in the first two overs. He scored one run off that ball, but from the third over he unleashed his record-breaking hitting, scoring 32 off the third over, with four sixes and two fours.

"It's probably an innings I'll never see maybe ever again. It was some of the cleanest ball-striking I've seen and sometimes you've just got to tip your cap to players like that that can do that. Whilst it was frustrating to watch it was also amazing to watch," said Tasmania’s captain, Jordan Silk, whose century (116 off 85 balls) set up his side’s record-breaking score.
