Mumbai, Feb 22 (IBNS): Overtaking wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, cricketer Shreyas Iyer has hit the highest T20 score by any Indian batsman in domestic tournament Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, media reports said.

Playing just 55 balls, Iyer scored 147 runs to help his team to beat Sikkim.

Earlier, Pant was the top scorer with his 128-run innings in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Riding on Iyer's batting, Mumbai had scored 258/4 in 20 overs.

Replying to the mammoth total, Sikkim could score just 104/7.

In another match, Cheteshwar Pujara, the chief architect of India's maiden Test series win in Australia against the host nation, became the first Saurashtra player to hit a T20 100.

However, Saurashtra were defeated by Railways by five wickets despite Pujara's heroic innings.
