Cricketer gets 160, rest of the players gets ducks

In one of the rarest of rare occasions in cricket Shania-Lee Swart of Mpumalanga scored 160 from 86 balls while the rest of the batters in her side got out for zero. 

Swart's brilliant knock was studded with 18 fours and 12 huge sixes. Eight of her teammates came in and went back for a grand total of zero runs as her side managed to get to 169/8 in 20 overs. The other nine runs came in extras.  

Her knock also helped her side win by a margin of 42 runs, beating Easterns during Cricket South Africa's Under-19s week in Pretoria on Monday

Swart also chipped in with 2/21 with the ball as Easterns managed to get to 127/6 in reply.
