Retired Proteas opening batsman Alviro Petersen hit an incredible double hundred for Glenvista Cricket Club in a T20 match against Soweto Cricket Club.
The opening batsman needed just 77 balls to score his quite frankly ridiculous 208*, almost single-handedly dragging Glenvista to 289 from their 20 overs. He hit 38 boundaries in total, with 28 fours and 10 sixes.
Soweto almost lost the match by 200 runs after managing just 93 for their reply.
The game was part of the Veterans Cricket Association of South Africa T20 tournament being played around the country featuring plenty of former Proteas and domestic cricket stars.
Petersen played 36 Tests, 21 ODIs and two T20Is for South Africa before retiring from international cricket in 2015.
Despite his heroics for Glenvista, as an opening batsman he was renowned for spending large periods of time at the wicket rather than for his strike rate but it’s never too late to reinvent yourself, it seems.
