A WEST Yorkshire cricketer set a remarkable record at the weekend, as he smashed a triple century in just 30 overs.

Chris Holliday was opening the batting for top Huddersfield League side Hoylandswaine, and although the 28-year-old has been the team's star batsman for a few years now, he had never had a day quite like this.

He put struggling Denby to the sword, thrashing a barely believable 316 not out off just 113 balls, which included 34 sixes and 21 fours.

Holliday obliterated the league's previous 50-over top-flight record of 239, set by Barkisland’s Tim Seinfert against Moorlands five years ago, and surely broke many other records along the way.

His triple-century helped Hoylandswaine to a mammoth total of 456-3 and unsurprising poor Denby got nowhere near, as they were dismissed for just 78.
