A group of international cricketers in Tanzania has set a new world record for the highest-ever match by playing at the top Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.
The teams included South Africa’s former fast bowler Makhaya Ntini and former English spinner Ashley Giles.
The game was played at a height of 5,730m (18,799 ft) in a flat crater just below the summit.
They played 10 overs each of a Twenty20 game before clouds stopped play.
“This is absolutely incredible! We are playing cricket on the summit of Africa!” Giles tweeted on Friday morning.
The current record for the world’s highest game is 5,165m, played in the Himalayas at Everest base camp in Nepal in 2009.
The final score was 82 for 5 for the “Gorillas” team led by England women’s vice-captain Heather Knight beating the 64 for 9 scored by Giles’ “Rhinos” team, the AFP news agency reports.
