Pretoria: Shikhar Dhawan smashed his way to the record books with a breathtaking 248-run knock as he singlehandedly guided India A to a 39-run victory over a fighting South Africa 'A' and into the tri-series final, here on Monday.

The 27-year-old Delhi left-hander blasted a 150-ball-248, which is only the second highest individual List A score behind former Surrey batsman Alistair Brown's 268 against Glamorgan at the Oval, back on July 19, 2002.

Riding on Dhawan's brilliance and some solid support from skipper Cheteshwar Pujara (109 not out), India A amassed a mammoth 433 for three in 50 overs.
