<!-- S SF --> Surrey set a new one-day world record as they piled up an astonishing 496-4 from 50 overs against Gloucestershire in their FP Trophy game at The Oval.
Ali Brown and James Benning set them on their way with an opening stand of 294, with Brown racing to a 50-ball century.
He was eventually bowled by Marcus North for 176, but Benning made 152 and Rikki Clarke weighed in at the end with an unbeaten 82 off only 28 balls.
Gloucestershire were all out for 239 in 34.1 overs to lose by 257 runs. <!-- E SF -->
A total of 22 sixes and 47 fours were struck during the Surrey innings.


Surrey took a Sweet revenge over Gloucestershire as last year they were at the receiving end and conceded a 130 run defeat against the same opposition.

Gloucestershire plays county cricket in division two.

Wow, 496. I wonder if they're a bit annoyed for not getting to 500.

Alistair Brown, the Surrey and former England batsman, struck an astonishing 176 from just 97 balls in Surrey's world record 496 for 4 against Gloucestershire at The Oval.

The total comfortably surpassed Sri Lanka's 443 for 9, made against the Netherlands in 2006, and also beat Surrey's previous highest - 438 for 9 against Glamorgan, at The Oval, in 2002. Brown was the destroyer that day, too, with 268 from 160 balls.

Brown, who brought up his hundred from 50 balls, wasn't alone, though. James Benning played with no less audacity, clean-hitting his way to 152 from 134. The pair shared in an opening stand of 294 before Brown was bowled by Marcus North: it was the fourth highest opening stand in the history of one-day cricket, exceeding Brown and Ian Ward's 286 in the match against Glamorgan in 2002.

Yet even with Brown back in the pavilion, Gloucestershire's bowlers were still at the mercy of The Oval's short boundaries, and Surrey's all-out aggression, with Benning continuing on to a blistering hundred - if not quite as ruthless as Brown's. Rikki Clarke then stretched Surrey's total into the record books with a savage 82 from a mere 28 balls - with six sixes and nine fours.

Daunted by such a mountainous total, Gloucestershire's top-order folded limply with Mohammad Akram (4 for 36) and Azhar Mahmood (2 for 37) reducing the visitors to 65 for 5, facing certain capitulation. But Mark Hardinges and Stephen Adshead proved what a flat track it was with a rollicking partnership of 114. However, both fell in quick succession - Adshead for a very brisk 54 from just 40 - as Akram ended with four wickets. Chris Schofield also impressed with 3 for 38 in a tidy seven-over spell.

Brown is a class batsman. He scored 268 in a 50 over match!! He truly deserves another chance at ODIs...Too late for it to happen now though. Hes 37 years old...

In another match yesterday, Ireland - nearly the same team that played in the World Cup - lost to Kent by 58 runs.

What kind of world record is this? First Class team playing a OD match againts another first class team? So if Dhaka scores 500 in 50 overs against Barishal, we will have the record?

You are right. :)

Even for first class cricket, scoring 496 is no small achievement. This is county cricket, so it's also bound to be more competitive.

All we need to do is give Ahraful and Al Shahriar licenses to kill.
