SYDNEY (AP) — Western Australia opener D’Arcy Short set an Australian one-day cup cricket record of 257 runs against Queensland on Friday.

Short made the most of Hurstville Oval’s tiny boundaries to score the new domestic mark off 148 balls, including 23 sixes, also a one-day cup record.

The 28-year-old Short eclipsed the 229 not out by Tasmanian opener Ben Dunk four years ago at North Sydney Oval.

Short’s innings lifted undefeated Western Australia to be all out for 387 runs in 47 overs. Queensland was later bowled out for 271 runs in the 43rd over, giving Western Australia a 116-run victory.
