Pretoria: He might have missed out on the world record for the highest list A (limited-overs cricket) score, but India A batsman Shikhar Dhawan is not complaining and is to be only the third Indian cricketer after Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag to score a double hundred in a 50-over game.

"I was aware of the record and it felt really special to score these runs," Dhawan told after India A's 39-run win over South Africa A, which took them to the tri-series final against Australia A.

"When I got out in the 44th over it occurred to me that had I batted till the end I had a chance to score a triple hundred. I am happy with what I scored though," he said.
