SYDNEY (AP) — Tasmania state opener Ben Dunk scored the first double century in Australian domestic limited-overs cricket with 229 not out in a losing cause Saturday against Queensland.

Exactly 800 runs were scored in the match at North Sydney Oval, where the close boundaries often lead to high-scoring games.

Dunk's total, leading Tasmania to 398-1 in its 50 overs, was the highest in the 46-year history of the competition. It eclipsed the previous record individual score of 197 set by New South Wales opener David Warner at the same venue last season.

The 27-year-old Queensland-born Dunk had 13 sixes in his 157-ball innings. Dunk and fellow opener Tim Paine (125) also set a record with 277 for any wicket in a domestic match.

Queensland, however, came back to win by seven wickets, scoring 402-3. Usman Khawaja picked up 166 runs and Chris Hartley added 142, with a 280-run partnership between the pair.

India's Virender Sehwag, who scored 219 against the West Indies on Dec. 8, 2011 at Indore, India, is the leading individual run-scorer in a 50-over international match.
