'Minor' cricket is regarded as matches played below first-class, List A or international level. Dadswell, who attended King Edward VII School in Johannesburg, which produced players like former South African captain Graeme Smith and current star Quinton de Kock, has played provincial cricket at age-group level.
NEWS: Twenty-year-old Shane Dadswell scored 490 runs for NWU Pukke against Potch Dorp XI in a 50-over club game... https://t.co/e1JDtGNyRB— SA Cricket magazine (@SACricketmag) November 18, 2017
He hit 126 off 38 balls in a club match a week earlier and could take a step up to senior provincial level as he has trained with the first-class North West team. "You dream about a double hundred, so to get 400-odd is a really special moment. It's phenomenal, the best day of my life," he said. Dadswell's record is well short of the 1009 not out scored by Pranav Dhanawade in a school match in Mumbai, India, in 2016, but Dhanawade was not playing in a limited-overs game.
