DARWIN, Australia - Phillip Hughes set a domestic batting record when he plundered an unbeaten 202 in Australia A's one-day game against South Africa A on Tuesday.

Hughes, who was dropped from Australia's first XI last year, hit a six off the last ball of the innings to raise his double-century. It was the highest score by an Australian batsman in a List A one-day game, beating David Warner's 197 for New South Wales against Victoria last October.

The 25-year-old lefthander averages 32.65 in 26 tests and 36.66, with two centuries and a high of 138 not out, in 20 ODIs.

His 202 against South Africa's second-string lineup came off 151 balls and contained 18 boundaries and six sixes.
